Version 4.0 of Tebis CAD/CAM software features a redesigned user interface for improved production processes in model, mold and die manufacturing.

The software features a new visual design, intuitive access to functions through icons and more feedback for the operator. The release is suited to components with steep cavities and can be used effectively for hard materials. It is especially productive when combined with high performance cutters, the company says. In adaptive roughing, the tool path is automatically adapted to the geometry without full-width machining. The large depth-of-cut and smaller lateral stepovers are designed to remove material while protecting the cutter and machine.

During off-screen calculation, the software enables as many as six NC calculations to be initiated in multiple open CAD files. Programmers have an overview of the status of the processes in the files due to the progress indicator covering multiple parts. Any errors that occur during the calculations are communicated to the user across multiple files.
