Offering improvements in solid CAD compatibility, the SmartCAM V14 also shows growth in productivity, usability and visualization. The product family consists of production milling, advanced milling, freeform machining, production turning, advanced turning, advanced wire EDM and advanced fabrication. The product includes Acis solid modeling kernel in all applications, which was previously found in freeform machining and advanced milling. Full 3D application support has also been added to all applications as well as OpenGL graphics to the main user window. Create-from-solids geometry capabilities allow creation of boundary and slice profiles from a group of surfaces. The boundary function creates a composite boundary from multiple adjacent surfaces that share common edges, and the slice function creates a slice from an entire solid, or from a subset of user-specified surfaces. The hole flip option automatically changes the entry side of through holes from one side to the other. True spiral pocketing, trochodial slotting and plunge roughing have been added as high speed milling features. The company has also enhanced the usability by including invert visibility, file preview and tool tip help.
