hyperMILL®: CAM fully integrated with the CAD interface

Certified Gold’ product: hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS® (Image source: OPEN MIND) (PresseBox) (Wessling, Germany, ) OPEN MIND Technologies AG, one of the leading developers of CAD/CAM software, is set to take part in SOLIDWORKS World 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona. OPEN MIND will present the 2014.2 version of its hyperMILL® CAM suite at its own booth and hold a presentation at the event, which runs from 8 to 11 February 2015. It is possible to call the hyperMILL® CAM functions directly from SOLIDWORKS® thanks to a shared database.

Due to its outstanding integration, quality and interoperability in relation to its own CAD environment, hyperMILL® has been named a 'Certified Gold' product by the Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS Corp. OPEN MIND is taking this opportunity to show the SOLIDWORKS® community the options hyperMILL® has on offer for the transition from construction to manufacturing.

3D shape Z-level finishing

When it comes to Z-level finishing, CAD systems usually simply follow the X and Y coordinates. If the bottom surface is curved, the milling result is not optimal and it is necessary to perform a number of rework machining steps. 3D shape Z-level finishing with hyperMILL® makes it possible to reference curved bottom surfaces, after which the milling paths are aligned. This means that the milling tool nestles optimally along the boundary edge between the bottom and the wall. All intermediate levels are offsets of the bottom plane.

2D plunge milling

During 2D plunge milling, the material is removed solely by plunging a milling tool. The advantage of the new cycle, which can be used for both roughing and finishing, lies in the fast machining of materials that are difficult to cut.
