The Customized Process Feature (CPF) allows non-standard geometry elements to be combined into a single machining process. This means the system can automatically recognize free-form surfaces or complex geometries that users can then select for programming.
Feature-based machining can speed up and simplify CAM programming by applying automated selection processes. Data relevant to machinings such as machining depth, starting points, surfaces, and tolerances – can be used directly for programming. Further advantages of feature technology include improved component quality. The goal of hyperMILL is error reduction and comprehensive standardization, which ensures that users use proven procedures and resources.
