CAMWorks 3 Axis Milling

3 Axis Mlling includes 2.5 axis capabilities plus routines to machine complex, contoured surfaces routinely encountered in mold making and aerospace applications. CAMWorks 3 Axis cycles are developed for speed, accuracy and efficient memory usage. Simple and complex parts can be cut quickly and accurately with a high quality toolpath.

Adaptive roughing strategy provides the ability to cut using the full depth of the tool and safely run your machine at optimum speed. This can reduce machining time up to 40% over conventional roughing with less wear.

3 Axis finishing operations include parallel slice cut, constant stepover, Z-level, curve project, and others.

Z Level/Constant stepovercombination operation can be used for machining steep and shallower slope areas in one toolpath.

All 3 Axis milling operations support rest or leftover machiningZ Level/Constant stepover Rest machining is used to reduce air cutting by restricting toolpaths to areas within the feature that have not been machined previously.

The curve project cycle removes material by projecting 2.5 Axis engrave or curve features on the 3 Axis feature. CAMWorks can calculate a single pass or multiple passes for engraving.

3 Axis Milling modules are built on the core fundamentals of:

  • Feature-based machining - Reduces programming time by as much as 90% compared to other traditional 3 axis CAM software.
  • Knowledge-based machining - Allows you to capture and reuse the best practices for various operations
  • Full toolpath associativity to solid models - Automatically updates the tools paths and CAM data
  • CAMWorks VoluMillâ„¢ - the ultra-high performance toolpath generator for rough milling operations
