hyperMILL® for hyperCAD®-S

With hyperCAD®-S, OPEN MIND has developed CAD software that is perfectly tailored to its hyperMILL® CAM software. The CAM specialist is fully focused on the needs of NC programmers.

CAM programmers use CAD systems differently from most engineers and designers. The traditional CAD tasks for CAM programmers include: selecting, adding, deleting, modifying, showing and hiding points, curves and faces. Another task is to generate ruled, filling and offset faces that must always meet the highest standards of quality.

Only a CAM developer can do CAD for CAM.

With hyperCAD®-S, OPEN MIND has created a CAD solution that is fully oriented to the requirements of CAM users. Efficient CAM programming is of primary importance and it is the job of the CAD system to provide perfect support for this.

hyperCAD®-S comes with unique, CAM-specific functions and thus forms a new standard among CAD systems. For example, the tool­paths that are typical for CAM programming are also a separate element type just like lines or faces.

Ground-breaking CAD/CAM integration

hyperCAD®-S impresses with a very stream­lined user interface and a comprehensive inter­face package. Consistently implemented 64‑bit techno­logy and the power­ful CAD kernel allow for lightning-fast transition to the CAM area. Direct access to all CAD functions has a noticeable effect on the overall performance of the CAD/CAM system.

This ground-breaking CAD/CAM integration enables more efficient CAD processes and un­restricted CAM programming. hyperMILL® CAM soft­ware benefits directly from hyperCAD®-S and its un­precedented functional scope. This allows hyperMILL® programmers to get the most out of their machines and saving time in the process.

Features of CAD software hyperCAD®-S

Innovative from the core

The innovations start in the system kernel. It contains different element types for lines and faces, such as cylindrical, plane, free-form, rotational and various other faces. The advantage: In NC pro­gram­ming, all cylindrical faces – and there­fore all drill holes, divided again according to specific diameter, can be combined elegantly and processed efficiently with the same drilling strategy. Tool­paths, polygon meshes, point clouds, rectangles and work­flows are greatly accelerated by shifting the most common CAM-related elements to the CAD kernel. This greatly accelerates processes.

Intelligent architecture

hyperCAD®-S was designed for Windows. The new data­base offers intelligent element management. In addition to familiar filters, such as for layers and colors, it is also possible to filter according to geometric, system-based and user-defined properties.

Modern user interface

hyperCAD®-S has been presented as a graphically modern, clearly arranged inter­face that is user-friendly for efficiently and quickly learning and under­standing. Self-explanatory icons make working with the soft­ware intuitive from the very start.

Very important for CAM users: hyperCAD®-S supports any number of freely definable work­planes, which can be saved with transformation/rotation data and can be selected as a reference. As many operator work­stations are equipped with touch­screens, the tool­bars and commands can also be operated via a touch­screen.

Customizable filter functions

In addition to familiar properties, such as layer and color, the most common geometric and system properties are available as user-defined filters. Graphic entities can be linked using tags, similar to keywords. This makes it easy to filter all the information regarding the CAD model.
