    ModuleWorks 2022.08 Released for Digital Manufacturing

    AACHEN, Germany, Aug 23, 2022 – ModuleWorks announces the release of its 2022.08 CAD/CAM software components for digital manufacturing. This is the second major ModuleWorks release of 2022 and contains new and enhanced features across the entire product range, including new custom tool shapes for roughing, automatic tool axis control, and vector interpolation for the machine simulation.

    Custom tool shape for roughing

    With the new feature for creating generic revolved tools, operators can customize the shape of the cutting and non-cutting parts of the tool for all triangle mesh-based roughing strategies. Customized tools avoid over-simplifications because they take specific features of the tool shape into account during the toolpath calculation to deliver a realistic simulation of the material removal process.

    Automatic tool axis control

    This new feature for multi-axis finishing adds a new mode called “Automatic” to the tool axis control. In automatic mode, the contact point as well as the lead and lag angles are automatically defined according to each available tool. This reduces programming time and simplifies tool axis definition.

    RTCP by vectors

    The RTCP ON command in the ModuleWorks Machine Simulation has a new option called “by vectors”. Between any two moves, the Machine Simulation interpolates the tool’s movement to ensure the tool tip points are located on a line and the tool vectors are located on a plane. The size of the interpolation steps can be controlled, and the command requires no machine kinematic knowledge, making it straightforward to use.
