    More automation in feature machining

    Quickly and conveniently drill multiple sections

    Optimal for series production: Now use the "Drilling in sections" function to automatically create multi-step bores; different depths of cut and cutting data can be specified for each. You can do this by preparing the bores for machining with the revised "Link bore features" function.
    The "Drilling in sections" function replaces the previous "Create toolpath for deep bores" function (MDEEP).

    This function is also suitable for manufacturing welded frames for which fits often have to be created in multiple plates that have large free spaces between them. It can also be reasonably implemented in unit construction: for example, if sections with material and gap areas alternate in bearing guides.

    Subsequently change machining sequence
    Convenient and reliable: If you intersect features with the "Cut" function, the selection sequence determines the machining sequence. The new "Sequence" function now enables this sequence to be subsequently changed. The gap areas adjust themselves automatically.
    This is how the machining sequence can also be modified for existing feature groups.  

    Transformation of toolpaths for reliable processing

    When transforming NCJobs, including mirroring, moving, rotating and scaling, you can now specify whether the NCJob needs to be recalculated on transformation, not initially calculated or whether only the toolpath will be transformed without recalculating the NCJob. If you want to quickly create a symmetrically transformed toolpath the ,"Transform without recalculation" option yields a quick result. This drastically reduces programming time. The NC code including machine cycles is automatically adapted to the travel direction of the toolpath. If the "Recalculate" option is selected, the NCJob is recalculated with the transformed or selected input elements. If the "Do not calculate" option is selected, you can prepare the NCJob and run the calculation at a later time, if necessary.

    Prevent minimal residual stock areas in roughing

    Prevent areas of residual stock
    Depending on the manufacturing situation, you can now limit or completely prevent residual stock areas on roughing with the "Off," "Low," "Middle" and "High" area filters. If the "High" option is selected, all residual stock areas are machined for a continuous stock allowance. Machining time is correspondingly longer. If the "High" option is selected, smaller residual stock areas aren’t machined. These can then be cleared with a smaller tool when re-roughing, for example. The "Low" and "Middle" options provide intermediate steps.
