PowerMill 2017 now supports the creation of turning programs for use on mill-turn machines. An expert 3- and 5-axis CAM solution, PowerMill 2017 offers greatly improved 2.5D programming.
Enhanced 2D programming tools interactively select features on your 3D model. Create safer, more reliable 2D toolpaths.
Calculate spun profiles and convert into turning features and toolpaths for use on 5-axis mill-turn machines.
Tool-friendly milling of deep/thin slots. Maintain constant cutting forces, prolong tool life and minimize breakages.
User-defined rules to control non-cutting links. Combine constraints for better control and reduced air-cutting.
Increased control of machining simulations. Visualize individual toolpath segments, leads, links, and tool changes.
Create toolpaths that automatically remain within the rotary axis limits of your virtual CNC machine tool.
Control the ordering of 3D Offset toolpaths to machine parts from the “outside in” or “inside out.”
Get increased accuracy of 3D stock models when machining components with undercuts or overhanging features.
Use an integrated text utility to create geometry for part engraving. Control text font, size, shape, and position.
