This allows you to have different settings for the main and secondary pocketing tools width of cut when the Take account of Previous Machining option is checked in the Pocketing dialogs. Alphacam R2 Automation Manager Automation Manager includes enhancements to simplify the workflow, including Multi-drill control, new Styles functionality, and further support for additional CAD file formats. Support for 4K monitors has been improved with the addition of Scaling Options, to make the icons larger for higher 4K dpi settings — accessed from the Appearance section in the Ribbon Bar Configuration. The operations tab shows which are being processed and the user can now abort and then edit parameters and restart. A number of new and enhanced items in the latest release of Alphacam software provide improvements with automation, machining and feature extraction. This means that small parts can be restricted to the area of maximum hold down e. Common applications of aggregates are horizontal routing and drilling.

When two or more components are present in the model space, the active selected component is now indicated in the Model Window by a red tick.
Alphacam Product History
If program stops are included in the operation, they will now be recognised by alpphacam internal simulation and alphadam simulator. Rendered clamps and fixtures can also be shown alpacam a full machine configuration. Significant updates to the Project Manager give it a more contemporary look, including specific icons for each Operation type. 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.
Sheets may have been created from the database or just-as-drawn in the pllus drawing. This improves the surface finish and extends the tool life. Sawing Sawing has been enhanced by controlling how the foul avoidance is applied.
Also new in R1 is aggregate tool holders enabling users to define them with geometry extrusions and rotations, STL and solid CAD models. New intuitive graphical user interface for Automatic Feature Extraction.
Sawing operations will now check for fouling against all geometries selected for the same operation. It can be applied to None or All of the selected machining geometries. A new field has been added to the Threading dialog called Rapid Distance above Part.

Small parts can now be identified and nested into specific areas of a sheet. This avoids exiting the material with a full width of cut, which could cause damage to brittle materials.
New Parallel and Flat Area 3D Machining Strategies Much improved Parallel and Flat Area 3D machining strategies for cutting solid models and surfaces provide reduced cutting time, improved surface finish and improved tool life. A new option pluw been added to the General tab called Auto Break-out cut Open paths only.
This can be very useful in Stone where the saw cuts can be extended to be just outside the sheet in order to prevent plunging of the saw. New Option — Open with Drawing if note exists.
The introduction of the “Construction” line button, found on the “Locate” Toolbar. Alphacam R2 Automation Manager Automation Manager includes enhancements to simplify the workflow, including Multi-drill control, new Styles functionality, and further support for additional CAD file formats.
Support for 4K monitors has been improved with the addition of Scaling Options, to make the icons larger for higher 4K dpi settings — accessed from the Appearance section in the Ribbon Bar Configuration. After drawing a sheet and adding it to the sheet database, parts can be defined as small parts for nesting zones by using the new Small Nested Part option in the Processing tab.
Many add-ins can now be controlled programmatically through the Alphacam Add-Ins 1. The machining area is indicated by a transparent shaded area around the part that is automatically updated when settings are changed in the dialog.
Being able pllus create user configurable reports and labels improves both part and program traceability.

Finally, the ability to import files from Google Sketchup adds to the extensive list of third-party file formats which Alphacam supports. Foul avoidance geometries appear in a alphaacam branch of the Operation tree, where geometries can be added or removed, and the selection remade.
As CNC machinery becomes ;lus sophisticated Alphacam continues to develop automating the movement of pods, rails and clamps. Several 3D machining operations can now be processed at the same time. Steep and shallow areas of parts detected allowing for different strategies to be adopted, such as a smaller tool step-over in a steeper gradient to that used in a shallow area.
Complex operations that contain toolpaths comprising thousands of individual elements will be faster. Because of increasing complexity, both of modern parts and CNC machines, accurate simulation covering all aspects of machining is vital before sending ppus component to the machine.
Ideal for art type work as well as simulated raised panel doors. Also, layer assignment has been added to the drive surface.
