hyperCAD®-S CAD software:
What’s new in 2020.2?

The Version 2020.2 of the hyperMILL® for hyperCAD®-S CAD integration also once again features many highlights and numerous new features.

The inclusion of hyperCAD®-S Parametric represents yet another one of our milestones. With this, components can be modeled parametrically.

Parametric modeling now in hyperCAD®-S

The new version of hyperCAD®-S includes a major technology update: parametric modeling. This enables the user to not only model components directly but also based on modeling history and parametrics. hyperCAD®-S is a very flexible solution in this regard, as it permits both methods to be used at the same time. For example, you can design a fixture plate parametrically and also place a static vice model inside the same dataset. Similarly, you can use a static solid model in parametric mode and add parametric features to it, or you can convert a parametric model into a static solid. Parametric geometry data used in hyperMILL® is associatively linked, and when there are any changes, it is updated automatically.

Parametric Modeling

Parametric design begins with a variable sketch, which you put together using various dependencies and parameters. On the basis of this V-Sketch, you can then create an extrusion or rotation feature, for example. You can change the shape by modifying the individual parameters. In doing so, you are creating the model gradually. hyperCAD®-S calculates all changes are instantly visible. The model does not need to be recalculated.

Direct and Parametric Modeling within the same Environment

You can use the same dataset for direct modeling and parametric designing. You can include your static solid models in the parametric design and add parameterized features to them. Similarly, you can convert a parametric model into a static solid, for example, should you wish to perform further direct modeling. Using these two design methods side by side is therefore very straightforward.

Typical Applications

Turning holders can be designed parametrically. Using the same base model, you can quickly create variants in different sizes.

New Interfaces

A number of new interfaces are now available. This has significantly improved CAD data importing. When you import CATIA, Creo, JT, NX, SOLIDWORKS, and STEP files, the PMI data is also imported and displayed as a vector graphic. In addition, there are new interfaces for CATIA V6 3DXML and Rhino 3dm.

Benefit: Faster importing of external CAD data.
