Some machining dialogs now have a new tab containing specific options for either 2D or 3D lead-in and lead-out paths, and there is also an option to save and open user-configured lead settings in addition to the defaults. This reduces unnecessary machining, and allows a flat area to be created for the ironmongery to be attached. C-axis aggregates are also supported in Alphacam simulation. Significant updates to the Project Manager give it a more contemporary look, including specific icons for each Operation type. Various enhancements have been made to the Drawing Application within Part Modeler. Apertures within parts can also now be avoided to stop small parts within them moving, for example. In addition, along with this comes much improved Undo support.

Utilizing Machining Styles greatly increases productivity by decreasing the time to generate tool paths. Alphacam R1 has been tested for compatibility with Windows 7, the next generation of the Windows operating system.
Aggregates with a programmable rotary axis and manual tilt are fully supported, as well as routers with fully interpolating 5-axis heads. This is useful with many post processors that require the work volume dimensions for the NC controller. Clicking the pick button in the Cylindrical Parallel dialog displays the Calculate Width of Cut dialog, enabling you to enter a value or pick a point in the active drawing.
Support for rotary cutting functionality in Mill, Router, and Stone modules. Safe rapid moves between planes are automatically controlled and verified using advanced solid simulation. Many new and enhanced machining techniques and parameters including: Alphacam R1 Enhanced Simulation and Automation. This can be used as the stock material for a 3D Z Contour Roughing operation. New Reporting Application The new Alphacam Reports functionality allows for design and creation of robust documentation such as nested job reports, setup sheets, tool listings, and part labels.
A new function in Nesting now identifies parts by name, rather than number as in previous releases. Closed 3D polylines can now be used as boundaries for 3D machining operations without having to first convert them to 2D geometries, saving several steps and valuable time.
New Waveform 3D Roughing Machining Strategy This new roughing strategy is a high speed machining technique that maintains a constant tool cutting load by ensuring the tool engagement into the material is consistent. The work plane can be created dynamically with on-screen feedback. Users now have the option to use a tab format or wizard when using the machining dialog. Common applications of aggregates are horizontal routing and drilling.
ALPHACAM PLUS Overview – CNET
Plus many more applications. Vero Software Alphacam Manufacturing Software. Latest Alphacam release focuses on alohacam June 23, Material to check against can be of any shape and clamps can now pop up and down to represent releasing and gripping of the material.
Steep and shallow areas of parts detected allowing for different alphacma to be adopted, such as a smaller tool step-over in a steeper gradient to that used in a shallow area.
New Fabricate editing tools, such as Cut, Crop, Subtract, etc. Combining the Aspire designing tools with the Alphacam ppus features makes for a very pluss combination. Maximum and minimum distances are set, and Alphacam determines the best position for the sheet ends.
Using the View Comparison function compares the part with the machining operations meaning manufacturers can see whether there is any stock left, and allows them to select an alternative or extra machining operation.
Sheet Database and Automation Manager will be upgraded automatically after running them for the first time in Alphacam R1.
The command displays a launch dialog from which the strategy can be selected and miscellaneous settings applied. There is also a new tool which he says is useful for tidying up imported geometry from CAD formats such as DXF and DWG, where the designer may have created several overlaying entities which are used in design, but are not required for manufacturing via CNC.
Click here to find out how to enable. Pocket area clearance and finish contour machining can now alphacan combined into a single machining operation.
Support for Rotary, Linear and tool changer type turrets, multiple turret and spindle support with full synchronization and plhs. Subtle changes to Part Modeler give higher quality image previews, along with commands for part manipulation including rotation around a specific point or axes, and zoom to a cursor.

JKL Machinery appreciates the opportunity to earn business and look forward helping customers grow. If program stops are included in the operation, they will now be recognised by the internal simulation and external simulator. Whenever an original part is amended on Alphacam R2, there is the option to automatically update the copy.
Significant updates to the Project Manager give it a more contemporary look, including specific icons for each Operation type.
