madCAM Level 4Xis the 3D CAM plug-in for Rhinoceros which gives the ability to perform both modeling and toolpath creation inside Rhino 3D. madCAM Level 4Xis perfect for 3D CAM for CNC -milling machines. All menus for controlling madCAM 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 Level 4X includes everything in madCAM 3X and adds 4-axis milling. When using the "axis of revolution" function included, you can use every function in 3-axis also for 4-axis milling.
As in the 3-axis version, this one also includes advanced automatic separation of toolpaths and uses a suitable strategy for milling of relatively steep and flat areas.
It supports region curves for milling inside or in between one or more smaller areas. Includes the extra function to automatically process from a user-defined 3D stock-model.
Key Features and Benefits
Roughing - Removes all the unnecessary material from the workpiece in an effective way. madCAM Level 4X cuts 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.
Finishing - Gives the final surface finish of the part. madCAM Level 4X effectively 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.
Remachining - This method offers an opportunity to remove material that remains where the previous cutter could not reach due to size of cutter. madCAM Level 4X has strategies for removing material calculated from the true stock model, inside boundary curves and with surface dual contact (pencil trace).
Curve Milling - 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.
