Version 7.4 has been specifically written to tackle the toughest software challenges faced by developers of CAM products and manufacturers of CNC controllers and machine tools. MachineWorks’ unprecedented development includes much improved surface quality and much greater accuracy.
“This is not just another release“, says Mike Nicholson, Sales & Marketing Director of MachineWorks, “Years of research have made possible some of the advances that we can see today in 7.4, like for example a completely new approach to 5-axis simulation that provides a real leap forward”
New 5-Axis Algorithm
MachineWorks has created a new method to resolve an old problem. The new algorithm for 5-axis swept volume generation allows more flexible quality optimisation, which further enhances the finishing surface accuracy.
New Sampling Technology
The enhanced engine creates images with improved surface detail, even on close ups, providing a highly accurate graphic representation at all times on sampling technology.
Hybrid Manufacturing Simulation
Both additive and subtractive processes can now be carried out in a single CNC environment. MachineWorks can deliver a seamless simulation for both the material deposition and the material removal as part of the machining steps of the hybrid manufacturing process.
MachineWorks Ltd, will be disclosing the latest release at EMO MILANO 2015 in Hall 4, Stand C27.
