SmartCAM Version 2018 Release Highlights (no audio)
SmartCAM v2018 Introduction
SmartCAM® v2018 includes a new Adaptive Roughing process that provides new functions to create high speed machining (HSM) consistent-engagement pocket, face, open profile, and region roughing toolpath, improvements to the recently introduced toolpath and material removal Verification system, and a wide variety of useful core improvements. Major highlights include:
New Milling Improvements in SmartCAM Advanced Milling, FreeForm Machining and the milling functions of Advanced Turning
New HSM Adaptive Roughing Strategy - A new Adaptive Roughing process provides new functions to create high speed machining (HSM) consistent-engagement pocket, face, open profile, and region roughing toolpath.
Adaptive Pocket - HSM Adaptive Pocket process provides high speed adaptive toolpath for Pockets.
Adaptive Face - HSM Adaptive Face Provides high speed adaptive toolpath for Facing Operations.
Adaptive Open Profile - Adaptive Open Profile Provides high speed adaptive toolpath for Open Profile Roughing.
Adaptive Region Rough - Adaptive Region Rough Provides high speed adaptive toolpath for SmartCAM Region Roughing Processes.
New 4th-Axis C-Table Indexing coding method - SmartCAM Milling applications now benefit from a new method of creating 4th axis C-table indexing CNC code.
Feed Rate Control Improvements in all SmartCAM products.
Additional Rough and Face Milling Operation Feeds - Rough and Face Milling operations have been enhanced to include new Fast Feed settings and a Conventional Cut Feed Factor.
Property Change Feed Entity - The toolpath property types now include a new Feed Entity.
Property Change Feed Override - A new Feed Override option can be used to apply a feed rate change directly to a group of elements.
Element Data Feed Information - Element Data has been enhanced to display additional information related to element feed rates.
Machine Events Feed Change - Feed Change functionality now allows application of the change to a group of elements.
Verification Improvements in all SmartCAM applications unless otherwise specified
Verification in Fabrication & Wire EDM - The Toolpath Verification system is now available in Advanced Fabrication and & Wire EDM.
Revolved Stock Generated from Wireframe Profiles - Open or closed profiles can be used to create revolved stock.
Hide Small Pieces During Verification - Remove "small chunk waste material" during simulation.
New 'Pause At' Verification options - New Pause At options provide easier examination of the simulation.
Core Improvements in all SmartCAM products
Copy Element Properties from one Element to another - The properties of an individual element can now be applied to the elements in the active group.
A New Tree-view List Style has been Added to the List View - A New Tree-view List Style has been Added to the List View Helping to Differentiate between CAD and CAM Geometry.
New Insert Bar Define/Edit Workplane Menu - New Insert Bar Define / Edit Workplane Menu enables more convenient access to Workplane definitions.
Custom Tool Graphic Holder Displayed in Add/Edit Step Preview - A Custom Tool Holder Graphic (CTG) can be displayed in the Add / Edit Process Step preview window.
KBM Library Dialogs Now Preview the Tool/Holder - KBM Library Dialogs Now Preview the tool.
Report Tool Image Format Function - The report format command has been updated to include a zoom factor.
Separate Inch/Metric Paths for CTG and Code Generator SMF/CGT - Separate Inch/Metric Paths for CTG and Code Generator SMF/CGT.
Updated Kernel and Data Translators - The ACIS kernel and SmartCAM data translators have been updated.
