NCG CAM 3 Axis - Base Module
Area Clearance Roughing
NCG CAM’s automatic roughing of surface data is suitable for all types of 2D or 3D forms, creating an optimised, smooth cutting ...
NCG CAM has an additional routine for roughing which is ideal for core forms, where the machinist wants to rough away the material by machining ...
Raster Roughing & Zig-Zag Roughing
Zig-zag roughing in NCG CAM will take linear cuts across the job at fixed Z levels, similar to area clearance or core roughing passes.
Adaptive Area Clearance
Adaptive area clearance eliminates full width cuts using a concept similar to trochoidal milling.
NCG CAM’s rest roughing can be done in two ways. The user creates the first roughing toolpath from a solid block of material as previously ...
Waterline (Z-Level) Machining Using Surface Contact Angles
Waterline passes can be used for semi-finish and finish machining the more vertical areas of a part. If a slope angle is specified, for example ...
Horizontal Area & Horizontal Core Machining
Horizontal area passes are used to finish machine flat surfaces more efficiently by using flat bottom cutters. Horizontal area passes are ...
Raster & Perpendicular Raster Machining
Raster toolpaths are used for finishing in conjunction with steep and shallow cutter contact angles and another machining routine, typically ...
This creates an archimedean spiral toolpath from a given focal point, generating a constant contact as it machines within a given ...
3D Constant Offset Machining
The constant offset machining strategy is used for maintaining a constant equidistant step-over from one tool pass to the next, irrespective of the ...
Morph machining allows the user to control a toolpath using flow boundaries and direction profiles. This cavity form is an ideal example of this ...
3+2 Five Axis Machining
3+2 multi-axis machining has an easy to use graphical interface, including being able to snap to the surface normal for machining.
Hole Detection & Drilling
NCG CAM has automatic hole detection for all holes, chamfers and cones that form part of the same hole composite.
UV Surface Machining
NCG CAM now tries to preserve the original order of surface selection when creating UV machining
Pencil Milling and Other Corner Sequence Machining
The pencil milling routine is to finish corners which might otherwise have cusp marks left from previous machining operations.
Optimization and Geometry Options
When machining components or moulds, it is sometimes necessary to remove holes or other apertures from surfaces to enable more efficient ...
