Perfect integration

hyperMILL® is always used in combination with a powerful CAD system. Depending upon customer requirements, this could be the CAD software in hyperMILL® (formerly hyperCAD®-S), SOLIDWORKS or Autodesk® Inventor®. The CAD integrations from OPEN MIND allow CNC programs to be created directly in the CAD software.

What are the advantages of CAM soft­ware when it is integrated in a CAD system?

CAM programmers can work in a familiar soft­ware environment. Continuous work­flows help to avoid errors. At the same time, training costs are reduced as users do not have to find their way around a completely new user interface. The period of training is significantly reduced and NC programmers can work faster and more productively. In general, the work­load of the CAM user is reduced as NC machining requires no comp­lex import, export or translation of model files. As a result, there is less data to manage.

The full associativity with the CAD model is guaranteed at all times. This means that changes made to the CAD data result in the loss-free, automatic update of the CAD commands and a direct recalculation of the tool­paths. Joint access to an identical data­base simplifies and speeds up the processes in the CAD/CAM soft­ware. Working with the CAD/CAM system is more efficient.


CAD integrations from OPEN MIND



Autodesk Inventor

hyperMILL® for Autodesk® Inventor®

Integrated CAM software for Autodesk® Inventor® and SOLIDWORKS

OPEN MIND provides integrated CAM solutions for leading CAD solutions such as SOLIDWORKS or Autodesk® Inventor® so that NC programmers can work in a familiar environment. hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS and hyperMILL® for Autodesk® Inventor® both deliver outstanding performance and allow all users to achieve high-quality results with the respective CAD integration. Full integration, simple operation and fast software processes make manufacturing more efficient.

The CAD-integrated hyperMILL® CAM software allows construction data to be processed simply and without any problems by the NC programmer. The 64-bit multi-core technology used in the CAM solutions from OPEN MIND helps ensure that toolpaths for the most complex machining operations can be implemented in the shortest possible time. Powerful NC programs help companies to achieve their goal faster, streamlining the production of precision parts. This is a key success factor for the entire manufacturing process.

OPEN MIND also offers its own CAD software (formerly hyperCAD®-S) in hyperMILL®. Commercially available CAD systems are usually designed specifically for the main user group of designers or engineers. CAM programmers work very differently with CAD software and need other functions that allow them to prepare CAD models in the best possible way for efficient NC programming. OPEN MIND has designed and developed its own, new CAD functionalities in hyperMILL® right from scratch. It is perfectly designed to fulfil the special requirements placed on CAD software by CAM programmers.
