hyperMILL® CAD/CAM Software:
What’s New in 2017.2?

Faster, easier and more versatile: hyperMILL® 2017.2!

One major highlight is the new electrode module that can be used to reliably and efficiently manufacture electrodes. There is also a new feature to quickly detect T-slots in T-slot milling. Furthermore, an expansion to the 3D-optimised roughing module ensures a significant increase in efficiency. And finally, during 5-axis swarf cutting of a curve, it is now easier for hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS users to create programs for machining operations.

General | T-slot feature and feature recognition

The new feature type allows T-slots to be quickly and easily recognised in the component. There are two types available for feature recognition: ‘T-slots’ and ‘Pockets with bottom and T-slots’. This feature information is incorporated into the ‘T-slot milling on 3D model’ strategy. It allows slots to be manufactured in a highly efficient way with just a few clicks.

Benefit: Simple and fast T-slot recognition and programming.

CAM – 3D strategies | 3D-optimised roughing

The infeed strategy has been optimised for the ‘Rest Material Roughing’ mode. The optimum infeed value is calculated using the ‘Use infeed optimisation’ option in connection with the ‘Additional chip thickness and depth’ values. The user can adjust the machining parameters to the conditions of the tool. This allows tools with extended cutting lengths to be optimally exploited and precisely controlled through the ‘Maximum infeed’ parameter.

Benefit: Faster machining and more economic exploitation of the tool.

CAM – 5-axis strategies | 5-axis swarf cutting with one curve

Two new functions ensure greater user-friend­liness with hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS. A perfect face and an equally perfect curve can be created automatically for swarf cutting, this is based on selected geometries via face selection. Automatic filleting for interior corners ensures optimal machining performance.

Benefit: User-friendly, fast and easy programming.
