Experience seamless workflow from design to manufacturing using one of the most advanced machining technologies available today: Autodesk CAM software.
In this webcast, we will take a close look at:
* Adaptive Clearing -- an advanced roughing strategy that sets the bar for efficient, high volume material removal. Using constant tool engagement and optimized cutter paths, Autodesk CAM software drastically reduces roughing time compared to conventional roughing methods and at the same time increases tool life.
* Derived Operations -- a great time saving feature that is not found in many CAM solutions. Clone an operation and change the strategy type. (Are there other things that can be changed? If so, it should state something with a broader meaning) If, for example, you wish to follow a parallel strategy with a contour strategy using most of the same settings (stock to leave, tolerance, step-over, boundaries, etc.), it is easier to use a derived operation instead of an entirely new operation. Essentially the derived operation is a duplicate of the original operation, but with the strategy type changed.
* Operation Templates-- this allows you to define multiple operations in a single template that can then be used to create new operations with the appropriate default settings. If, for example, you typically center drill a hole, followed by a standard drill, followed by a counter bore or a reaming operation for what you would consider to be a “standard” hole. Instead of repeating the process for every part being machined, drop these settings off into a template and recall them on any part being machined in the future.
