Open Mind Technologies USA Inc.’s HyperMill 2015.1, a CAM software covering 2.5D through five-axis milling and drilling, mill-turn and specialized CAM solutions. The software integrates into the HyperCAD-S front-end with dedicated CAD for CAM functions, and also with SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor CAD software systems. Each of these platforms can read industry standard neutral file formats and many popular native CAD formats.  The integrated solutions allow users to run CAD and CAM concurrently, which eliminates data conversion issues and facilitates programming efficiency.

Machining topics include feature recognition on native and imported models, macro database to store best practice, high performance roughing from two-and-a-half axis up to five axis, and an array of multi-axis and five-axis techniques. Collision detection and collision avoidance simplify the programming task and provide high quality tool paths. Programming automation is available in many levels, including macros that store process knowledge, smart macros that include logic to adapt to the current situation, and CPF customized process features that can react to model data that is organized by color or layer or other attributes.
