ModuleWorks to show latest Woodworking CAD/CAM at LIGNA

May 20, 2011 - ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM components for 5-Axis machining and CNC simulation, will show latest release of its CAM components, version 2011.4 at the LIGNA woodworking fair in Hannover (Hall 16, Stand A12) from 30th May to 3rd June 2011.

Webinar/Fact Sheet – ModuleWorks for Woodworking

ModuleWorks CAD/CAM software components are used by many CAM vendors in Woodworking. As a preview of what will be on display at the LIGNA exhibition, ModuleWorks are delighted to present a Webinar showing the features and benefits available to Woodworking CAD/CAM systems.  If you would like to attend this Webinar, simply register at www3.gotomeeting.com/register/829916726

A Fact Sheet summarising these features and benefits is also available for download at: www.moduleworks.com/industries/industries.asp?Industry=Woodworking

The latest release from ModuleWorks introduces a broad set of new features across the products range including powerful new machining and simulation capability. Highlights are shown below.

4 and 5-Axis Machining

The 5-Axis component offers easier to use SWARF machining providing the automatic calculation of the upper and lower drive curves from the selected model geometry.  The automatic drive curves can be overridden, but this feature makes it quicker to get the initial toolpath onto the model

A feedrate control zone is also supported giving fine control in specific areas of the model. An STL model defines the area where the differential feedrate is used. This is in addition to the usual controls for feedrates on leads and link control.

The new 5-Axis Multi-Blade toolpaths now includes new automatic fillet detection and finishing strategy.  It also supports angular limits to ensure the toolpath is appropriate for the target machine. 

Specific 4-Axis toolpaths, tailored for rotary machining, are now available; strategies include Around, Along and Spiral.

3-Axis Machining

3-Axis rest roughing supports a full stock model, allowing rest roughing to be performed against a series of different tools or operations.  In addition, ordering of toolpath passes has been improved; together these improve efficiency of toolpath generation.

Elsewhere, the Parallel Cuts strategy now offers the option to limit milling to an up or down direction while Flatlands now has the option to remove corner pegs, allowing larger stepovers.

Simulation

ModuleWorks offer full machine and material removal simulation for woodworking router machines, including support for aggregates, multi-head drilling and pods.
