New: Strategies for optimized 3D stepover


Tebis Version 4.0 impresses with new strategies for optimized 3D stepover. The "Curve synchronous" strategy for any part areas and the "Z-variable" strategy for steep part areas provide significant benefits for the user.

Both new strategies are based on the specification of guide curves for designing the optimal path layout. We have also created another new function for generating guide curves. This enables you to obtain all the required parameters for the tool and elements from the corresponding NC calculations. Thanks to the user-designed guide curves, you now have maximum contact options and can use your expertise to fully adapt the machining to your requirements. For closed sloped areas, you can also use the area limits as your guide curves. Because the system adheres to the specified 3D lateral stepover in flat and steep areas when calculating the toolpath, you can achieve a uniformly optimal surface quality over the entire component. At the same time, you can reduce your time and effort for manufacturing because you traverse at optimal feed rates, thanks to a very uniform material entry, which results in a shorter machining time and lower tool costs. The conveniently generated guide curves also reduce the effort in NC programming.
