PowerMill 2020: Uphill Corner Finishing
PowerMill 2020 now provides additional control of steep corner finishing with the inclusion of an "uphill cutting" tick box. When selected, all steep regions of a corner finishing toolpath will be machined in the upwards direction, reducing the likelihood of tool chatter, deflection and imperfections in the surface finish.
PowerMill 2020: Model Filleting
PowerMill 2020 now includes the ability to automatically add user-defined fillets to internal corners found on the CAD model when calculating Optimized Constant Z and Steep and Shallow Finishing toolpaths. The additional CAD model helps protect cutting tools by avoiding shock loading from occurring as the cutter engages into heavy amounts of stock.
PowerMill 2019.2 Tutorial: Automatic Orientation Vectors
PowerMill 2019.2 now automatically applies orientation vectors to toolpaths when they're simulated to help ensure the simulation and NC program (G-code) output match each other. This gives CAM programmers greater confidence whilst reducing programming time and effort.
