PowerMill 2019: Automatic Tool Tilting
PowerMill now offers a new "automatic tool tilting" option to help simplify the creation of safe 5-axis toolpaths. With previous releases, users could select from a range of options to control how to avoid collisions. This new automatic option works regardless of the toolpath type being used or the shape of model being machined. This single option helps make 5-axis programming as simple as 3-axis.

FeatureCAM 2018: Getting Started with Interactive Feature Recognition
For a more in-depth approach, this video looks at interactive feature recognition (IFR), which can be used to generate features using surfaces and solid models interactively. This approach provides greater level of control than that which is provided by Automatic Feature Recognition, by allowing you to choose which faces are used to define your feature boundaries.
PowerMill 2019: Vortex From Stock
PowerMill's high efficiency roughing toolpath - Vortex - has been enhanced to offer a new "From Stock" option that uses adaptive clearing logic seen in other Autodesk CAM software tools. Toolpath offsets are calculated using the shape of the stock being machined as well as the finished CAD model resulting in toolpaths that can be considerably more efficient.
