Stages in Pattern and Mould Production

Use OF ANY 2D DATA or DIGITIZE PARTS to HAVE 3D parametric CAD DATA

Able to import all kinds of file formats. (Igs, Step, Vda, Ug, Catia, Ideas, Pro/E, Parasolid, Sat, Set, Dxf, STL, Dwg. ASCII)
Digitize any physical figure in 5 axis If there is no technical drawings.
Bi-directional Associability between 3D Cad file and technical drawings.
Photo realistic representation.
  
DESIGNING TOOLING LAYOUT FROM A 3D CAD FILE
Automatic parting line creation, model thickness, draft check, parametric solid and surface modeling in the same environment.
Production of assemblies depending on production method and technical drawings.
  
CREATING A 3D CAM DATA OUT OF 3D CAD FILE
Application of different machining strategies and techniques.
Roughing of Casting stock, CAD File, Block. Parallel Roughing Flat Surface roughing
Re-roughing of remaining stock from previous tool path
Finishing such as Z level, bi-directional, High Low, Low High, HRadial, Spiral, optimization of tool Z level or bi-directional paths, Flat Surface finishing
Z level, Bi-directional, contour rest milling of areas left by previous cutter, or remaining stock from any tool path(s)
Contour or Parallel Pencil Tracing
Automatic calculation of side steps of cutters depending on surface scallop
Curve Machining, plunge points of roughing, engraving, contouring, pocketing drilling, tapping, boring, etc.
Collision detection and splitting tool paths to avoid collision depending on cutter length and shape of tool holder.
True solid cutter verification system showing operation time, collision detection of cutter and tool holder, fixtures, accurate zoom, pan, rotation, measure, cutting volume, comparision of CAD data and machined stock.
Post-processing
