The latest version of the hyperMILL® CAD/CAM suite, 2019.2, has a range of new features including high-precision 3D finishing, 5-axis tangent machining, high-performance turning, and new CAD-for-CAM technologies. OPEN MIND is integrating more and more functions that previously required extra CAD machining steps directly into CAM strategies to further speed up programming.
The last version of hyperMILL® already featured high-precision profile finishing; now, hyperMILL® 2019.2 offers a comparable function for 3D shape Z-level finishing. The “High precision surface mode” option ensures ultra-smooth surfaces with tolerances in the µm range. This saves time on post-machining finishing processes, if needed, particularly when applied to mold making. The “Smooth overlap” function has the same effect for 3D profile finishing. The transition regions for steep and shallow machining have a small overlap including a slightly lifted cutter, resulting in perfect finish with an imperceptible transition.
