SolidCAM2008 R12 incorporates more than 100 new features. Its enhanced Automatic Feature Recognition and Machining capability (AFRM) supports automatic recognition and machining of multi-level closed and open pockets in a solid model. This version offers an extended tool table for milling and links in addition to external tool management systems.
Additional functionalities include 2.5D milling operations such as face milling, T-slot and 3D contour; combined strategies for high speed machining; sub-operations for five-axis simultaneous machining such as swarf milling and impeller machining; combined Solidverify and machine simulation; and associativity and machine simulation for mill-turn.
