CAD data must often be prepared before NC programming. For example, you need extension and rounding surfaces, area and center curves, closing faces over recesses etc. The geometric form of the blanks often also still has to be designed.
Tebis provides NC programmers with easily usable CAD functions with extensive analysis functions. With these functions, design changes are quickly detected and radii, planar surfaces and undercut areas are quickly found and marked. Functions for determining dimensions and inserting texts are included in the standard scope.
A prepared CAD model lays the groundwork for automated CNC programming: In many cases, NC programming can then proceed automatically in Tebis.
Tebis offers extensive functions for analyzing geometry:

Fill surfaces are often used before the calculation of NC programs, for example in the area of recesses and slots. The part will be simplified and decomposed for a better overview. Tebis also offers convenient functions for this purpose.
If parts contain NC features from the Tebis feature library, then subsequent 2.5D NC programming can be performed completely automatically. This is handled by the feature scanner: It converts the design feature into an NC feature that includes all relevant machining information.
Tebis offers several automatic design functions for defining blanks:
Surfaces are extended by simply moving the drag arrow.
Special high-end milling functions such as machining deep slots require guide curves that the NC programmer creates using a wizard.
Preparation function for fast 5-axis deburring. Tebis automatically detects all sharp edges in a part. Areas such as countersunk bores that are deburred during the boring process can be excluded from machining .
