Ordering of Profiling and Roughing
Edgecam 2015 R1 includes a new Optimize Path function in both the roughing and profiling cycles, giving greater control over the toolpath. Specifically, users can save on wasted toolpath movements by dictating the order in which regions are machined.
Turning on Milling Machines
Edgecam 2015 R1 introduces a new machine tool configuration that makes it possible to turn on a milling machining center. As well as accurate code output, full machine tool graphics are available for toolpath simulation.
Wire EDM Simulator
Edgecam 2015 R1 makes the Wire EDM programming function available in the Workflow environment. This release also offers full machine simulation, including stock and cross-section display.
Updated Internal Modeling Software
Edgecam Workflow Solids, the internal modeling software, includes numerous new commands in Edgecam 2015 R1. DXF and DWG files can be imported to accelerate the design process. Internal and external threads can now be created in EWS. Timesaving commands have been introduced, such as Copy/Move procedures and the ability to create circular workplanes.
Rough Waveform Turning
Edgecam 2015 R1 introduces a new turning cycle, based on the already established milling waveform technology. Rough Waveform Turning means that the toolpath maintains a constant cutting load, enabling significantly faster cutting data, and prolonging tool life. Similar to other turning commands, the cycle is sensitive to the stock condition, eliminating “fresh air cuts.”
