Reduce machining time
Increase surface quality
Improve tool life
These screenshots illustrate some of the features of HSM Performance Pack and were made using the backplot and verification engine that are included with HSM Performance Pack.
Adaptive clearing toolpath with major stepdowns and automatic semi-roughing.
Close-up of adaptive clearing toolpath. Maximum allowed engagement is never exceeded. Allowing very deep cuts and high feeds.
Contour tooplath with contact ramping.
First Z-level for pocket toolpath with high degree of smoothing to allow higher feeds.
Normal verification of pocket, contour, horizontal clearing toolpath.
Verification of contour toolpath with colorization by slope. Contact ramp on surface appears as shaded red.
Verification of parallel operations at 45° and -45° respectively with colorization by slope. This clearly shows which areas are milled up and down.
Verification of 2 parallel operations. Each operation has a different shade of gray.
Verification of contour and parallel toolpath with colorization by feedrate.
Partial verification of contour and parallel toolpath with overlay of toolpath.
Parallel operation as presented in the backplot.
