MachineWorks offers the latest version of its toolkit for CNC simulation and verification, v6.4. The software includes support for full machine simulation with an emphasis on complex turning simulations. It also includes enhanced hardware acceleration of rendering, which improves simulation performance, the company says. In addition, the automatic gouge detection feature works for continuous five-axis milling cuts. Capabilities such as on-the-fly gouge detection make input from operators less necessary, the company says. Other features include greater flexibility to handle input geometry models, including open solids, as well as the addition of “render objects” across all engines, which allows applications to render their own geometry and annotation objects.

  • Programming A Robot The Way You Program A CNC Machine Tool

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
