Having a continuous process chain from material application to material removal is particularly decisive for hybrid systems. During the simulation, the material application is mapped and simultaneously created across the entire simulation process. The major advantage is that milling can then be carried out directly on the application stock. Meanwhile, additive and subtractive processes can be combined as desired and securely reviewed in the simulation.
hyperMILL® calculates the corresponding stock for each additive or subtractive process and adds this to a stock chain. This stock is not only used for simulation purposes, but also for collision checks. This results in secure, precise mapping of the machining process.
Every technology manufacturer uses their own values and parameters for controlling the application. hyperMILL® provides a flexible solution that can be used to control individual parameters. Technology parameters can be defined and stored in the tool database. During the postprocessor run, the corresponding NC code is then created together with all control commands for the respective machine.
