Vero Software’s powerful 3-D CAD viewer and analyser, WorkXplore, is now available for trial and purchase directly from the software’s website.
The whole world is talking about 3D printing, additive manufacturing and generative multi-layer construction technologies. Nevertheless, this is a long way from meaning that the classical machine tool is going to be pensioned off. The EMO Hannover 2017 will be showcasing an international banquet of production technology – with alternative processes as the highly auspicious icing on the cake.
“Among comic book superheroes, Tony Stark is my favorite. Why? Because he doesn’t have powers from a freak accident or through an extraterrestrial birth. No, he’s an engineer who uses his brain – and technology – to solve problems.” That’s what the capabilities in Netfabb 2018, the comprehensive additive manufacturing solution, will do for customers: give them the power to combine human ingenuity and machine learning, where the two together are greater than the sum of their parts.
hyperCAD®-S is an integrated CAD software for hyperMILL® users that is specifically tailored to the requirements of CAM programmers. The most notable addition to Version 2017.2 is a module that provides quick designing of die-sinking electrodes. Thanks to the module’s convenient and automated process, users can simply base their electrodes on the face to be die-sunk within the component geometry – no specialist expertise is required.
ModuleWorks, one of the leading suppliers of CAD/CAM software components for machining and simulation, and ZEISS, an internationally leading technology enterprise operating in the fields of optics and optoelectronics, are developing a solution that combines conventional CAM and the requirements of ultra-precision machining in a single CAD/CAM system.
The new 2017.2 Version of the hyperMILL® CAM suite now provides a number of improved machining strategies, such as 3D-optimised roughing and programming aids such as T-slot feature detection. In addition, the CAD software hyperCAD®-S has been given a new module for the production of electrodes for die-sinking.
