Are you designing virtual HD heads of your machines because you want to get a better overview of the actual manufacturing situation? Unfortunately, this is no longer possible as of Version 4.1....
Instead, we have something much better for you!
Toolpath simulation comparison: While designed HD heads can only simulate head movements, the virtual machine enables precise simulation of the actual kinematics.
Precise representation of the actual manufacturing environment makes it possible: As of Version 4.1, all toolpaths for machining operations on catalog machines can be checked for collisions with the machine right in the CAM environment with the "Machine collision check" license. You can correct the toolpaths before NC output.
A clear overview: Show and hide specific machine components – like doors or side walls – during the simulation.
Always in the right place: You can position the part on the machine table "on the fly" using drag arrows or parameter inputs. The actual clamping situation is transferred one-to-one on the documentation.
Only one NC program is needed: You can define multiple reference points in a single NC program, if desired.
Know exactly how long it will take: Store dynamic parameters – like those from the manufacturer's data – in the virtual machine. The machining times automatically are calculated.
Combine many into one: If you want to use different pivot ranges and tilt directions, you can easily do this in the kinematic configuration. Multiple heads aren’t necessary.
Digital communication: Insert comments in the NC program. These are then output with the NC program.
Maximum flexibility: As of Version 4.1, you can adapt virtual Tebis catalog machines to the actual geometry of your machine. This can be easily done in the machine library.
