New features in PowerMill® 2018 make 3- and 5-axis machining safer and easier, giving manufacturers greater confidence to run their CNC machines unsupervised.
View features by release
Rapid calculation of toolpaths for large or complex parts. Machine surfaces, solids, or meshes. (video: 2:53 min.)
Cut parts faster with high-efficiency roughing. Prolong tool life and reduce maintenance costs. (video: 3:20 min.)
Access a vast library of toolpaths. Improve surface finish, while minimizing manual polishing. (video: 3:07 min.)
Make global or localized edits to your toolpaths without the need for lengthy recalculations. (video: 2:49 min.)
New | Ribbon interface
Improved interface and user experience. Make better use of the 3D view, and quickly access commonly used commands.
Interactively create 2D features, toolpaths, and NC code. Automatically check for collisions and minimize air cutting.
Produce cutter-friendly toolpaths to mill ribs in molds and dies. Use as a low-cost alternative to EDM.
Import surfaces, solids, or meshes from mainstream CAD systems. Create high-quality NC code regardless of model quality.
Choose from a range of toolaxis modes. Includes auto-collision avoidance. (video: 3:29 min.)
Control your 5-axis machine to improve machine motion and part quality. (video: 2:55 min.)
Machine difficult-to-reach features with fewer setups, shorter tools, and more aggressive feeds and speeds.
Access a comprehensive suite of tool types and combine with 3- and 5-axis strategies to meet your machining needs.
Enhanced | Dynamic machine control in region
Select multiple regions of your toolpaths, use a virtual CNC machine to dynamically apply alternative toolaxis settings
Automate the manufacture of electrodes for EDM. Define machining templates and apply to families of parts. (video: 2:52 min.)
Offline programming and simulation of robots. Analyze axis motion to reduce singularities and over-travel.
(video: 3:00 min.)
Gain turning strategies for use on 5-axis mill-turn machines. Combine with milling toolpaths for fewer machine setups.
Use 5-axis machining to produce blisks, IBRs, and impellers. Create smoother roughing and finishing toolpaths.
Enhanced | Turning improvements
Make edits to turning toolpaths without lengthy recalculation. Check for collisions and apply to 3D stock model.
Get tools to machine turbine blades, vanes, and other airfoils. Use specialized toolpaths with smooth 5-axis motion.
Use 5-axis milling to cut ports. Control engagement angle and cutter push off, and minimize manual polishing.
Control noncutting toolpath connection moves. Minimize air cutting, avoid dwell marks, and improve surface finish.
Embed your expertise into templates, macros, and toolbars. Minimize programming time and human error.
Build a searchable tool database and share across your engineering team for greater process control.
Share vital information with your shop-floor operators. Minimize setup time, and help avoid costly mistakes.
Enhanced | Stock simulation
Dynamic ViewMill now provides improved image quality. New options to detect and display collisions with stock.
Get tools to find and remove collisions and near misses. Analyze your entire CAM project for greater confidence.
Simulate your toolpaths and NC programs using a virtual CNC machine. Highlight over-travel and rotary axis reversals.
Dynamically orientate your virtual CNC machine tool to use shorter tools and more aggressive feeds and speeds.
Quickly transfer your NC programs and associated data to third-party verification software for added peace of mind.
Output high-quality NC code for your machines. Access the latest machining functions on major NC controllers.
