hyperCAD®-S Geometric Engine: points, curves and faces

    The right CAD basis from the start: The innovative basic version of the hyperCAD®-S CAD software provides CAM programmers with extensive and powerful functions to help them solve standard CAD tasks quickly and easily.

    Every CAM programmer is familiar with the standard CAD tasks of selecting, adding, deleting, modifying, showing and hiding faces, curves and points. Users expect top-quality results from the ruled, filling and offset faces that they create. hyperCAD®-S offers all this and much more.

    CAD functions for the CAM programmer

    Instead of relying on numerous distributed submenus (as is the case in conventional design systems), hyperCAD® uses central, user-friendly dialogs with large icons. Smart selection mechanisms and innovative, freely definable filter functions make it considerably easier to use geometric entities for subsequent programming. Changes can be made to imported geometries in an instant and do not require inconvenient design aids.

    Features of the hyperCAD®-S Geometric Engine

    • Simplified use: Powerful navigation and selection functions provide support for working with large data records and many different CAD elements.
    • Fast processes and workflows: Numerous functions speed up the repair of external CAD data. Geometry areas can be easily changed.
    • Visualization of changes: A fast geometry comparison immediately shows where exactly new versions of customer components have changed.

    Organising elements

    Various selection options:

    • For curves: chain selection ‘from ... to’, minimal angle, tangential chain, stop at cross
    • For faces: tangential, limited, coaxial, coplanar, fillets, chamfer
    • Per window, lasso, chain, circular or arc-shaped, for all or for only visible elements
    • According to properties such as colour and layer and according to tags such as geometry dimensions, import data and import systems
    coaxial | smart selector | points curves faces
    Face selection: coaxial
    coplanar | smart selector | points curves faces
    Face selection: coplanar
    fillets | smart selector | points curves faces
    Face selection: Fillets
    tangential | smart selector | points curves faces
    Face selection: tangential

    Multiple workplanes

    multiple workplanes | points, curves, faces

    It is possible to define multiple workplanes. Saved workplanes make it easy to perform transformations. The planes can also be imported to other files at any time.

    Standard preparation for milling

    planar filling faces | points curves faces

    It is easy to create frequently required building, extension, machining and stop faces in a structured manner. This is also the case with boundary and guide curves as well as further construction aids, planes and axis systems.

    Breakthroughs and holes on planar and non-planar faces can be easily closed with hyperCAD®-S.

    Practical analysis functions

    The analysis functions allow draft areas and highly complex geometries to be located quickly and reliably. This enables assessing the quality of an existing component immediately. Problems are recognized quickly.
