New developments in generative design can help companies make better decisions about part design by including manufacturability as a key value. CNC milling, for example, not an additive process, might come up as the better choice for making a complex part.
Mastercam 2019 Lathe is designed to enable users to accept and program any CAD file for dynamic roughing and precision finishing.
Open Mind has released HyperMill 2019.1, the latest version of the CAD/CAM suite, with an expanded finishing module in the the HyperMill Maxx Machining performance package.
Vero Software, FASys and Spring Technologies will adopt Hexagon’s corporate identity.
The HyperMill Mill-Turn Machining module, created by Open Mind Technologies, combines turning and milling functions to promote optimal process reliability and efficient use of machines and tools.
Vero Software, FASys and Spring Technologies are adopting Hexagon’s corporate identity.
“Around half of the parts produced today are not programmed using CAD/CAM software but are instead programmed on the shop floor, and we aim to simplify this process,” says ModuleWorks.
Intuitive interfaces and automated steps are making CAM programming easier for new users, even as parts and the machines that produce them increase in complexity.
Vericut version 8.2 includes a Force Turning module for NC program optimization.
