Send to CAM | WORKNC 2022.1
Send to CAM functionality within DESIGNER includes more enhancements to automate the workzone creation, WORKNC sequence selection, multi-line comment, WORKNC project folder path location, 3D stock model from existing WORKNC project, WORKNC project files by colour, WORKNC model based on parasolid tessellation improving machining quality.
Holder collision check against stock | WORKNC 2022.1
WORKNC dynamic stock holder collision check ensures that the roughing process is safe without any collisions. However, it is possible to run initial toolpath calculation without selected holder. Then, after selection of holder the process uses only the part geometry. WORKNC 2022.1 brings new enhancement to optimize the holder calculation with the part and the stock and mark as red if any collision is detected.
Waveform final pass, better leads improvement | WORKNC 2022.1
WORKNC 2022.1 provides an enhancement of final pass against wall to clean those areas, allowing to mill with an allowance of zero, avoiding additional finishing toolpath. The pocket trajectory is now optimised according the longest pass which generated smoother toolpath.
Waveform new helix improvement | WORKNC 2022.1
WORKNC 2022.1 allows to mill smaller pockets with new helix rule definition, Minimum helix diameter is now 20% of cutter instead of 50%.
Workzone activation format | WORKNC 2022.1
WORKNC 2022.1 improves machining quality using the parasolid tessellation or other cad file tessellation format. It influences the point distribution.
Curve profiling, retracts optimisation | WORKNC 2022.1
WORKNC 2022.1 adds minimum retract distance(already used by several toolpath like level finishing) to curve profiling. The benefit is to reduced air cutting movement.
5-axis strategies, overlap distance | WORKNC 2022.1
WORKNC 2022.1 includes an enhancement to roll beyond the entry point in every pass, ensuring surface finishing is improved by eliminating the differences caused by the tool’s deflection. It is automatically applied to closed contours.
5-axis rolling, spiral transitions | WORKNC 2022.1
5 axis rolling strategies within WORKNC 2022.1, includes new option to generate spiral movement when milling the rolling surface with steps, avoiding lead IN/OUT marks.
