www solidcam com 11 Distinctive & Proprietary iMachining Toolpaths! Morphing Spirals – iMachining uses an advanced, patented morphing spiral that gradually conforms to the geometry of the feature being machined rather than a conventional offset toolpath This maximizes tool to stock contact or "tool in the cut" time Channels and Moats: Divide & Conquer – In order to most efficiently attack large areas of material removal as well as stand-alone islands, they are separated or subdivided into smaller sections using iMachining’s patented Moating technology This maximizes the continuous morphed spiral cutting Eliminate Wasted Time & Motion – iMachining toolpaths only cut the stock that needs to be removed, eliminating "air cuts" From the initial approach, right to the last cut, rest material tracking ensures every toolpath is always efficiently cutting material iRough, iRest, iFinish and Multi-tool Technologies ù Combined roughing, finishing and rest material functionality in one single job ù Multi-tool: Easily define and edit related jobs that use multiple tools, all from within a single interface Geometry and Levels are synchronized and rest material is tracked automatically ù iRough + iFinish: Optimized roughing and finishing in the same job with the same tool Ideal for prototyping and the machining of soft materials ù iFinish: Suitable for hard materials and precise machining with separate tool for finishing floors and walls ù Optimized rest roughing and bottom finishing of 25D features with various strategies ù Automatic recognition and removal of rest material remaining through the drill tip Most efficient iMachining Morphing Spirals toolpath Moating: Intelligent Division of Areas to maximize Morphed Spirals SolidCAM – The Solid Platform for Manufacturing
