The new 2021.1 version of the hyperMILL® CAD/CAM suite offers a wide range of new functions for even higher surface qualities primarily in tool and mold making. In mill turning, OPEN MIND now offers an option for simultaneous turning and HPC machining. In addition, a new function available in hyperCAD®-S allows you to easily align stock and model data, which is particularly useful before reworking additively manufactured stocks.
The 5-axis Radial Machining function makes programming easier while delivering top surface quality. This new strategy allows toolpaths for bottle shapes, for example, to be calculated much more quickly using a radial projection method. An indexed tilt per cut allows each step to achieve the best possible surface quality. In addition, the standard integrated “High-precision surface mode” (for ultra-precise surfaces in the µm range) and “Smooth overlap” strategies are available in transition areas.
