ModuleWorks Announces 2009.6 Software Release

ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM components for toolpath generation and simulation, has announced the latest release of its CAM components, version 2009.6. The release offers a wide range of new features across the product range, further expanding capability for the different areas of 3-5 Axis toolpath creation and machine simulation.

The market leading 4 and 5-Axis machining components have been further refined with new STL machining capability and improvements to the automatic (tilt) 3-5 Axis conversion strategy which benefits from further automation and faster performance.

5-Axis STL machining is a relatively new development. Traditionally 5-Axis machining has required the full parametric surface definition; however this is not always readily available and surface geometry can be difficult to manipulate. New 5-Axis line projection methods in 2009.6 allow an undercut toolpath to be generated on an STL mode without using surface geometry.

New features appear across the product range. The 3-Axis machining now has Constant Cusp finishing where a single cusp-height value is maintained across the entire model giving excellent surface finish from a single strategy. Roughing strategies also see improvements with optimum methods of entry now applied automatically when approach the stock from outside.

ModuleWorks Simulation now features new techniques to emphasise sharp edges on the finish component; this is particularly useful with prismatic components where the individual features can be clearly shown.

David Plater, Technical Director comments “We’re showing some real innovation with our latest 5-Axis machining. The ability to work with STL is generating a lot if interest with our partners and we’re already seeing the technology integrated in a number of CAM solutions. Future releases will see other applications of the technology with SWARF machining from STL close to its beta phase.”
