Within many CAM-systems, which use interfacial and solid-models, the imported data are converted (triangulated). Unfortunately, this conversion process cause impreciseness. MyXpert® VirtualCAM does not convert the model. It works directly with the source data of surfaces or solid (also with NURBS) and thus guarantees a highly precise tool path.
You simply position the tool in the processing direction, towards the area you have to machine and press “start” – everything else is done automatically by MyXpert® VirtualCAM. Information on depths, security layers or security separation distances are automatically ascertained. At each programming step you see what your machine really does with the round table, crosshead and tool in reality way.
Roughing: groups – several surfaces - Z constant - face milling - contour - drilling out - bore centered in the pocket - 2.5D pockets
Finishing: several surfaces - groups - Z constant - face milling - contour - optimized surfaces - complex – combined - engraving - 2D contour processing - 3D path milling - 2.5D wall processing, drilling and screw thread, rooms, engraving, clearance of edges,
Rest material: z-constant - face milling - contour – optimized surfaces - complex - bore centered in the pocket - milling of remaining area - 2.5D horizontal - 2.5D bezel.
Besides other things, MyXpert® VirtualCAM is a Solidworks partner and offers PlugIns (integrated control panels), for well-known CAD systems, which again simplify the data flow. Whether for Solidworks, Inventor, Kompas-3D, Alibre, Rhino, MegaCAD or SolidEdge, MyXpert® VirtualCAM does know them all. With the help of the PlugIns their processing becomes associative to your construction, which means if your 3D-model changes, you processing changes too.
Simulations show raw part, machined part, machine, tool path, tool holder and clamping devices. Each process operation is marked in a different colour and is dynamically simulated. While simulating the process operations, collisions are proven, rest materials or undercuts are displayed and with the help of a coloured scale remaining material becomes evident.
The new way of programming processing machines includes
Full control of deficiently processed areas
Automatic recognition of drilling in tool direction (feature recognition)
Engraving of all surfaces with support of 4/5 axis
Rotary cutting for complex turning- /cutting-workpieces, e.g. crankshaft
HSC- processing strategies
Turning/lathe machines with opposed spindle and several revolver
Laser-, plasma-, waterjet machines with up to 6 axes
