OPEN MIND Technologies AG has now introduced Version 2018.2 of its hyperMILL® CAD/CAM suite. In this new release, numerous features – such as drill hole and pocket recognition as well as 3D-optimized roughing have been further improved. The most important additions are to be found in the CAD section: hyperCAD®-S. This CAD software, which is specifically designed for CAM programming, provides working solutions to many familiar challenges posed by meshes, faces and volumes, enabling the creation of highly precise components and tools. The data is prepared for subsequent NC programming independently of the original CAD system.
