hyperMILL 2022.1 CAM SOFTWARE – WHAT IS NEW?

hyperMILL 2022.1 offers important improvements in many areas. 2D and 3D functions have been improved, for example, through path compensation during pocket milling or the new option for automatic edge breaking, all with no additional programming effort, delivering even better results in terms of surface quality.

hyperMILL 2022.1

Here are our “TOP 5” innovations of hyperMILL 2022.1. They will be also presented at the upcoming free webinar, which will be held on Friday, 17th of December at 1 PM.

1. CAM 2.5D STRATEGIES

2D CONTOUR MILLING ON 3D MODELS

The new “Break Edges” function can be used to detect sharp edges on a 3D model automatically and bevel or round them. The user defines a specification that is applied to all sharp edges. They can then be broken quickly and easily during machining with no design effort.

BENEFIT: Simplified edge breaking, no more need for manual programming.

2D POCKET MILLING

This strategy has been extended with the “Finishing Path Correction” function. A compensated path is output for the pocket wall. This allows processing to be controlled directly on the machine, with dimensionally accurate pocket machining.

BENEFIT: Fast programming.

2. CAM 3D STRATEGIES

3D Z-LEVEL SHAPE FINISHING

This strategy has been extended with the “Scallop Height” infeed strategy. This ensures an even infeed over the entire machining area with steep and flat regions. Thanks to the new “Bottom to Top Milling” option, the machining direction can be changed.

BENEFIT: Straightforward infeed control, easy to change the machining direction.

3D LEVEL MACHINING

This fully automated strategy searches for suitable, high-performance path layouts according to the situation. It now takes the adaptive pockets into account as well. Using the “Minimum Pocket Size” parameter allows milling areas (pockets and boreholes) that fall below the defined value to be automatically excluded from the calculation.

BENEFIT: Improved machining quality and various optimization and intervention options.

3. hyperMILL PROBING

Improvements in the parameter settings of the measuring strategies and the support of features now permit more extensive process automation. For example, user variables in the parameter fields of the strategies are supported and boreholes, rectangles, grooves, and planes can be used as features. All required tolerance information can be transferred directly from the features.

BENEFIT: Easy creation of measuring tasks based on feature information.

4. CAM MILL-TURN

hyperMILL now offers convenient programming for two-sided machining on machines with a main and counter spindle. The machining jobs are simply programmed under the “Main Spindle” and “Counter Spindle” containers, and thereby assigned to the respective machining side. The component or bar material, with or without parting, is simply transferred with the new transfer job.

BENEFIT: Straightforward programming of main and counter spindle machining.

5. CAD INTEGRATION: hyperCAD-S

PICK THROUGH TRANSPARENT COLOR

An option allows the user to click through transparent colors to select the underlying elements. This allows milled parts to be quickly selected through transparent raw materials (colors) even without hiding them.

BENEFIT: Fast selection through transparent colors.

FACES FROM MESH

With this function, a plane can be automatically created from each triangle of a mesh. Planes for hyperMILL can therefore be created very quickly and easily from STL mesh data in order to optimize the selection, edge boundaries, and job processing.

BENEFIT: Straightforward extraction of STL mesh models to flat surfaces.

SHAPES – EXTENSION FACES

Extension faces can be generated quickly and easily with the new “Extension Faces” command. Selection takes place directly on the faces being extended. The extension is created tangentially to the selected faces. With the “Milling Mode” option, an additional stop surface can also be created to precisely delimit the machining area.

BENEFIT: Simplified option for face extension based on a face selection.

hyperMILL 2022.1

There are a lot more innovations, but for our current users of hyperMILL, we believe these are the main benefits of the 2022.1 edition. Join us on Friday, 17th of December at 1 PM to find out all the details.
