hyperCAD®-S CAD software:
What’s new in 2018.2?
The Version 2018.2 of the hyperMILL® for hyperCAD®-S CAD integration also once again features many highlights and numerous new features.
Practical CAD-for-CAM functions such as V-sketch reduce the amount of programming required and ensure improved milling results. Two options have also been added to the hyperCAD®-S Electrode module.
hyperMILL®. Version 2018.2.

Analysis: Shape–Shape Distance
This new analysis function makes it possible to measure the distances between two shapes. This function can be applied to face models, solids, meshes, or stock. For example, this allows a face created using the global fitting function to be compared with the original face. Moreover, the analysis allows casting allowances to be quickly reviewed.
Benefit: Simple distance analysis.
The new ‘V-sketch’ command is used to assign geometric constraints to 2D contours. If individual contours are changed, the sketch is automatically updated using their dependencies. The values of the V-sketches are edited using dimensional constraints and the parameter list.
Benefit: Easy to change milling boundaries or turning contours.
Copies of an electrode that has already been created can be generated in various positions. These are checked for collisions and can be assigned the technology values of the master electrode or new technology values. The technology data is correspondingly processed during electrode milling, and the reference system and eroding position for each copy are included in the report.
Benefit: Secure creation of electrode copies.
