Have you ever wondered why your tool paths look great in your CAM System but not on your milling machine? This is no longer something you have to consider because with CAMplete TruePath the answer is clear.
In 5-Axis production systems the only thing between your CAM systems and the machine tools is a post-processor. However, most post-processors don’t account for the complex, non linear motion unique to each and every machine. This leads to unpredictable tool motion, and large variations in cutting conditions leaving poor and inconsistent surface finish, gouging, increased tool wear and inaccurate results.
CAMplete TruePath bridges the gap between all popular CAM systems and your milling machine. It provides everything needed to analyze, modify, optimize and simulate 5-Axis tool paths in an integrated 3D environment.
Simulation and Verification
CAMplete TruePath provides sophisticated yet easy to use tools for simulating and verifying your tool paths.
Real-time simulation shows you how your programs will run in the real world. You can identify problem areas and correct them before you ever send the program to your milling machine. Simulating the true machine path allows you to isolate 5-Axis deviation errors and take the guess work out of your process.
Machine Collision detection uses highly detailed milling machine models direct from the manufacturers to ensure accuracy. Because CAMplete works closely with machine tool vendors, many popular add-ons can easily be added to your model for even greater accuracy. You can easily import your fixture and finished part geometry to ensure that nothing is missed. Avoiding costly machine, part and tool collisions will help keep your milling machines up and running.
CAMplete TruePath can even simulate material removal to ensure the safety of every line of G-Code you run, and everywhere in between. Full 5-Axis simulation of your machines’ cycles and tool changes means that nothing is missed.
With CAMplete TruePath you can easily create and edit unlimited custom G-Code formats and apply them to any project. Standard formats developed in conjunction with your machine tool vendor are supplied so you can get started right away.
CAMplete TruePath is the Universal post processor. It’s easy to switch between different CAM Systems or combine tool paths from different CAM Systems in a single project. Just select your milling machine and NC Format; all your G-Code is output in a consistent unified format regardless of how you started.
CAMplete TruePath gives you an unprecedented level of control over your programs. Using CAMplete TruePath’s sophisticated tool path editor you can modify the posted or un-posted tool path data. Regardless of what edit was made all data is kept synchronized, no need to post or un-post.
Don’t like what you see? Cut/copy/paste, drag/drop, reorder reverse and split or combine paths, passes and positions all in one spot. With CAMplete TruePath it’s easy and efficient to make changes.
