The interface is designed to provide an improved user experience and help shorten the learning curve. Dynamic machine control enables users to dynamically change the five-axis motion of tool paths using a vir tual machine twin. This new update allows users to make localized edits to regions of tool paths for improved control of CNC machine motion while minimizing program- ming time. PowerMill now provides a higher-quality sim- ulation image that can be zoomed, panned and rotated, enabling users to review the quality of their programs and, ultimately, provide greater confidence that the stock is being machined as specified. The software also includes enhanced turning abilities, including collision checking, editable tool paths, and a greater choice of leads and links, which in turn provide users with increased flexibil- ity and control. New 2D strategies simplify the programming of prismatic pockets and bosses. Improvements help reduce the time taken to program 2D parts while also helping to minimize the need to use multiple CAM programs. The company will also present the 2018 version of FeatureCAM software, which also features the new ribbon-style user interface.
