Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG is the latest version of the popular computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software for machining complex parts. Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG offers many new features and enhancements that improve productivity, quality and efficiency in CNC machining.
Some of the new features in Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG are:
A new 2D to 3D conversion tool that allows users to create 3D models from 2D drawings quickly and accurately.
A new roughing strategy that optimizes toolpaths for high-speed machining and reduces cycle times.
A new finishing strategy that uses adaptive machining techniques to achieve smooth surface finishes and reduce tool wear.
A new simulation module that provides realistic and accurate visualization of the machining process and detects any errors or collisions.
A new post-processor that supports the latest CNC controllers and machines from various manufacturers.
Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 operating systems. It also integrates with SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor and other CAD software. Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG is available for download from the official website of Edgecam or from authorized distributors.
Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG also introduces a new chamfering cycle that supports 2D and 3D geometry and can automatically debur sharp edges. The cycle can also apply cutter radius compensation and 3D chamfering for more precise and smooth results. The chamfering cycle eliminates the need to prepare geometry and reduces programming time.
Another new feature in Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG is the support for 3D normal offset output in surface machining cycles. This feature allows users to compensate for tool wear on 3D machining toolpaths and achieve greater accuracy and control on tight tolerance components. The feature also improves surface quality and extends tool life.
Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG also enhances the user interface with a new design CPL datum marker that has color coded rotation bars and axis labeling. This makes it easier to orient and manipulate the coordinate system on the component. The dialogs for rough and finish turn cycles also have pictures to help new or infrequent users understand the options and settings.
Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG also includes a new simulation module that provides realistic and accurate visualization of the machining process and detects any errors or collisions. The simulation module can handle complex multi-axis and multi-spindle machines and supports various types of chucks and collets. The simulation module also allows users to measure distances, angles and volumes on the simulated component and compare it with the original model.
Another new feature in Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG is the live job reports that can be accessed from any device with a web browser. The live job reports show various information about the current job, such as tool list, tool usage, cycle time, machining time, material removal rate and more. The live job reports can also be customized to suit different needs and preferences. The live job reports help users to monitor and optimize their machining performance and productivity.
Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG also improves the integration with other CAD software, such as SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor and others. Users can import and export models and features between Edgecam and these CAD software seamlessly and efficiently. Edgecam 2014 R1 CLS AMG also supports the latest file formats and standards for data exchange. 061ffe29dd
