Edgecam’s Workflow tools enable CAD/CAM engineers to apply tool paths within seconds, and now, based on customer feedback, many enhancements have been made in the latest release, Edgecam 2014 R1, mainly in the two areas of part setup and stock and fixture management, giving additional control and saving even more time. Workflow was specifically designed for manufacturers to reduce costs, improve quality and hit shorter leadtimes by giving direct access to Edgecam’s accelerated toolpath technology. 

A machine feature command allows users to interactively select a feature on their component, which will then be machined. The user can elect to only rough, finish, or rough and finish, meaning they have full control over their manufacturing order, without the need to apply full automation.

And Fixture Manager sees the introduction of chucks and collets that can be used for milling and turning.

The new chamfering cycle, which is a modern command supporting 2D and 3D geometry, is an option to automatically debur sharp edges and also removes the requirement to prepare geometry, which is another time saver. It fully supports cutter radius compensation as well as 3D chamfering.

Further enhancements include a design CPL datum marker with color-coded rotation bars and axis labelling. Also, Edgecam 2014 R1 introduces an interactive editing tool for redesigning standard dialog boxes. The ability to “mask” the standard interface allows users to pick which modifier settings are displayed, empowering them to create command dialogs aligned to their preferred manufacturing methods, the company says.
