SolidCAM – Brochure Overview

SolidCAM – Overview 20 SolidCAM's HSS is a high speed surface machining module for smooth and powerful machining of localized surface areas in the part, including undercuts It provides easy selection of the surfaces to be machined, eliminating the need to define boundaries It supports both standard and shaped tools Total Tool Control to Machine Only the Areas You Choose HSS is the CAM module that takes your 25D machining far beyond profiles, pockets and faces, providing a 3D machining capability by driving along specific surfaces on prismatic and 3D parts The HSS toolpath is focused on single or multiple surfaces and excels in creating a flowing toolpath on a group of surfaces that form a complex 3D shape, eg fillets Experience total tool control to machine only areas you choose, without the need for constraint boundaries or construction geometry Powerful Surface Machining Strategies for Smooth, GougeFree & Optimal Toolpaths SolidCAM's HSS Module provides numerous surface machining strategies, that produce an efficient, smooth, gouge-free and optimal toolpaths to finish the selected surfaces HSS provides special toolpath linking options, generating smooth and tangential lead-ins and lead-outs The linking moves between the toolpaths can be controlled by the user to avoid holes and slots, without the need to modify the model’s surface Retracts can be performed to any major plane HSS HIGH-SPEED SURFACE MACHINING
