Quicker programming, more efficient machining – hyperMILL 2018.2 has a lot to offer! Users will enjoy a large number of innovations and optimizations.
Practical CAD-for-CAM functions such as automatic face extension for 3D Z-level Shape Finishing reduce the amount of programming required and ensure improved milling results. There are also two new strategies available for measurement.
What's new in hyperMILL 2018.2?
3D Z-level Shape Finishing
Two new functions are available for 3D Z-level Shape Finishing:
Automatic Face Extension
During programming, the ‘Automatic face extension’* function can be used to extend the selected milling surfaces. This CAD-for-CAM function eliminates the need to modify the milling faces in the CAD system beforehand.
New Tool Types
Barrel cutters can now be used for 3D Z-level Shape Finishing, and are launched in the strategy as a standard tool. General, tangential, and conical barrel cutters are supported.
Benefit: Reduced programming time, improved milling results.
