Post processors Posts for common CNC machines
Reduce roughing time by a factor of 4 or more compared to conventional roughing, and increase tool life. (video: 3:46 min.)
Use the familiar tools and user interface in Inventor or SOLIDWORKS software. (video: 1:27 min.)
Design changes in the source CAD system get automatically updated downstream in drawings and toolpaths. (video: 57 sec.)
Multiprocessor/multicore CPU support reduces toolpath calculation times, especially on large or complex designs. (video: 1:03 min.)
Strategies for 2D machining on flat planes. Included in the free express and regular versions of HSMWorks and Inventor HSM. (video: 1:59 min.)
Choose from several 3-axis styles, or select a work plane, and perform 3+2 axis positioning with the same CAM strategies. (video: 2:05 min.)
Simultaneous 4- and 5-axis features for machining complex models include multiaxis contouring and 3D toolpath tilting. (video: 2:10 min.)
Improve productivity with traditional turning, facing, grooving, and boring functions. Includes support for live tooling mill-turning. (video: 2:24 min.)
Generate 2D profile cutting paths quickly with the ability to add all contours in the same plane, add tabs, and specify quality settings. (video: 1 min.)
Automatically avoid collisions between your part and tool holders during CNC calculations. (video: 1:17 min.)
Include the tool holder in cutter path calculations to prevent collisions, with options to pull away, trim, detect tool length, or abort if interference occurs. (video: 1:58 min.)
Carve shapes or text into parts, using a chamfer tool. (video: 44 sec.)
Control cutter engagement by using slope angles to minimize tool deflection and improve finish.
See stock being removed, and check for shaft and clamp/fixture collisions.
Perform common text edits to NC program files.
Measure distances or dynamically view vital information, such as feed/speed and estimated machining time.
