The new Hybrid strategy combines the advantages of Contour3D with the Scallop and Parallel strategies enabling users to easily create cutting passes for both steep and shallow areas in a single operation.
Parallel’s “Automatic angle” automatically determines the optimal machining angle when machining shallow areas.
A look at the useful option “Add center passes” available for Scallop in HSM Performance Pack.
HSM Performance Pack includes several options for controlling the containment of a tool’s motion during machining.
In this post we will look at some of the options, included with the Pocket and Horizontal strategy, which enables smoothing and simplification of toolpaths.
HSM Performance Pack comes with support for 5-axis tilt which can be helpful to avoid gouges. 5-axis tilt is available for the Contour3D, Parallel, Radial and Spiral strategies.
The Pencil strategy in HSM Performance Pack is highly customizable. It uses a trustworthy center line detection algorithm and is packed with options to help ensure the highest degree of machining quality.
In this post, we will show some examples of our strategies with undercut applied to them and look at a couple of new features that are currently in beta.
The Contour strategy in HSM Performance Pack is designed to give you an optimal finish for steep regions in your geometry.
We are currently working on the Swarf strategy for HSM Performance Pack. The Swarf strategy supports multiple cutting modes for generating toolpaths between bottom and top contours. These include, Single pass, Spiral, Morph and others.
