madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xis the 3D CAM plug-in for Rhinoceros which gives the ability to perform both modeling and toolpath creation inside Rhino 3D. madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xis perfect for 3D CAM for CNC -milling machines. All menus for controlling madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xand generated tool-paths are inside Rhinoceros and stored together with your model.
Developed for toolmaking (Mould And Die) as well as for prototype productions, madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xgenerates a non-collision toolpath with excellent cutting action. Where demand for accuracy and perfect surface smoothness is required, madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xis the 3D CAM plug-in of choice.
madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xis meant for the NC-operator who demands an easy-to-use and efficient system. It facilitates effective manufacturing in a short period of time. The operator is provided with clarified results of chosen parameters. madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xhandles all 3D models that Rhinceros handles and is able to generate NC-codes to all kinds of 4-axis milling machines. A built-in post processor is adaptable for different kinds of controlling systems.
Key Features and Benefits
Removes all the unnecessary material from the workpiece in an effective way. madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xcuts the part in z-levels. The operator can choose a ramp angle to create a smooth approach of the cutter after every retract and traverse.
Gives the final surface finish of the part. madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xeffectively calculates cuts for both planar and z-level finishing. The operator controls the limit with an angle for relatively horizontal and relatively vertical surfaces. The limit is calculated from the surface normal.
This method offers an opportunity to remove material that remains where the previous cutter could not reach due to size of cutter. madCAM 6.0 Level 4Xhas strategies for removing material calculated from the true stock model, inside boundary curves and with surface dual contact (pencil trace).
This includes methods for machining from curves. The curve milling offers opportunities for Engraving and strategies for toolpath projection inside boundary curves and between two curves.
2 1/2 D Machining
This includes methods for machining from curves or surface edge curves. Profiling, Pocketing, Facing and Drilling.
