hyperCAD®-S CAD Software:
What’s New in 2018.2?

The 2018.2 Version of hyperMILL® for hyperCAD®-S CAD integration once again features many highlights and numerous new features.

Practical CAD-for-CAM functions such as V-sketch reduce the amount of programming required and ensure improved milling results. Two options have also been added to the hyperCAD®-S Electrode module.

Analysis: Shape–Shape Distance

This new analysis function makes it possible to measure the distances between two shapes. This function can be applied to face models, solids, meshes and stock. For example, it allows a face created using the global fitting function to be compared with the original face. Moreover, the analysis allows casting allowances to be quickly reviewed.

Benefit: Simple distance analysis.


The new ‘V-sketch’ command is used to assign geometric constraints to 2D contours. If individual contours are changed, the sketch is automatically updated using their dependencies. The values of the V-sketches are edited using dimensional constraints and the parameter list.

Benefit: Easy to change milling boundaries or turning contours.

Virtual Electrode

Copies of an electrode that has already been created can be generated in various positions. These are checked for collisions and can be assigned with the technology values of the master electrode or new values. The technology data is correspondingly processed during electrode machining and the reference system and eroding position for each copy are included in the report.

Benefit: Secure creation of electrode copies.
