ZW3D Cam


Detailed information:

Hole Making

Manual program for a mount of holes is a very boring, what’s more,it is easy to get wrong. Smart hole tactic of ZW3D is able to automatically identify features of all holes on work pieces and generate reasonable tool-paths,which greatly save machining time and reduce errors.
• Provides 2-axis and 5-axis hole tactic
• Both of 3D models and 2D wireframe can be identified
2-Axis Milling

The 2-axis milling tactic provides a rich set of tool paths for rough stock removal and finishing. It also provides the means for the operator to make holes or cut access holes with drills or mill tools. The 2.5-axis tool paths include profiling and pocketing by collapsing step-over(inward or outward), parallel linear cuts, or continuous spiraling.
• Easily generate tool-paths based on features and profiles
• Smartly avoid the collision with part detection
3-Axis Milling

Intelligent 3-axis milling provides productive roughing and smooth finishing. QuickMill™  technology helps improve programming efficiency, save machining time and lengthen tool life.
• Smooth flow adjust the tool path maintaining a constant load on the tool and avoid full width cuts
• AFC function enable to optimize the feed rates based on tool load, increases the work efficiency and prevent tool breakage
• Reference operation detects machining status automatically, simplifies the programming and saves machining time
4/5-Axis Milling

Optional 5-axis tool-paths include a range of strategies such as Plane cut which keeps the tool perpendicular to the surface and Swarf cut which keeps the side of the tools in contact with the surface, offering a wide range of options to the programmer.
• Easily convert 3 axis tool path into 5 axis tool path
• Automatically interpolate the axis movement with Flow-cut strategy
• Intelligently generate the link movement between two 5 axis operations
2-Axis Turning

The turning module supports OD and ID roughing, finishing,threading, and grooving operations. Hole making operations are also included. The standard functionality of tool library, operation management, verification and simulation are also supported.
• Wireframe, surface and solid feature both can be recognized
• Support outside diameter (OD) and inner diameter (ID) roughing, finishing,threading, grooving operations, etc
• Provide a rich tool library and support tool customization
Post Processor

ZW3D Post provides advanced post-processing capability for converting cutter location data (APT-CL) into machine specific code (G and M code) required by CNC machines. ZW3D Post is integrated into all ZW3D machining bundles.
• Supports all classes of 2 and 3 axis milling machines
• Access to all internal postprocessor variables
• User-definable postprocessor syntax
• CL file conversion
• Automatic conversion of point to point data to CNC format
• State-of-the-art technology using Windows GUI
• An easy to use macro language
• Conversational output style support
