New tool types

hyperMILL 2014.2 supports two new tool types for turning:

Parting tool
Complete threading insert
Benet: More exibility.

Tool database
The update function of the tool database has been improved
and the formula denition options have been extended.
Benet: Greater safety and more exibility.

CAM strategies

2D contour milling for 3D models

Three new functions have been added to 2D contour milling for
3D models:
Spiral infeed
hyperMILL 2014.2 allows spiral infeeds on 3D models. Thanks
to collision checking, these machining operations can be programmed reliably.

Benet: More ecient and faster machining.

Trim toolpaths
A parameter can now be used to specify the length up to which
trimmed milling paths can still be output.
Benet: More safety. Smoother running of the machine thanks
to optimised toolpaths.

Contour milling on pocket features

Easy programming of pockets with dierent side wall and bottom tolerances.
Benet: Easier to use.

CAM strategies

2D plunge milling
The 2D curve-based plunge milling cycle allows the ecient
roughing and nishing of vertical contours in material that is
dicult to cut.
Benet: Faster machining.


3D shape Z-level nishing

The concept of soft bounding is now used in this new cycle. This
ensures that the boundaries to adjacent surfaces are calculated
more precisely and that sharp outer edges are machined more
A new function allows curved bottom surfaces to be referenced.
As a result, the milling tool ts optimally against the boundary
edge between the bottom and the wall. Osets are created for
the milling path calculation based on the bottom surface.
Benet: Optimised nish. Reduced programming and machining times.


3D rest material machining

The open and deep as well as steep and at areas of cavities
can be machined in one job with collision avoidance. The rest
material areas that are recognised during collision avoidance
are transferred automatically to the subsequent job where they
are then milled using a longer tool or modied inclination. This
cycle is particularly suitable for machining deep, narrow areas
and slots. It is possible to avoid overrunning sharp outer edges
by selecting additional curves.
Benet: More user friendly. Easier to use and optimised surface

5axis rework machining



When converting from 3axis toolpaths to 5axis toolpaths, all

tool types, such as woodru cutters and the new barrel cutters,
can be used. Lateral or radial projections can also be selected
in addition to axial projection. The original and new technology
data are always available for the conversion of reference data for
the new machining tool.
Benet: Signicantly reduced calculation, programming and
machining times.

More transparency, fewer errors:

View and check CAM/CAD data prior to production
Until now, only the NC programs and text reports were available to machine operators for setup preparation.

With the new hyperMILL ShopViewer the visualisation solution for the workshop hyperCAD -S and

hyperMILL data can be visualised directly next to the machine. Now every manufacturing operation can be
checked in detail on the monitor before the part is setup on the machine.

The clearly structured world of CAM programming has a far better connection to the workshop thanks to

the hyperMILL ShopViewer. Machine operators with their vast knowledge of manufacturing practices can
autonomously view and simulate CAM/CAD processes. This allows a far better understanding of the actual
manufacturing process than before.

Simple and fast display, analysis

and documentation of CAM/CAD data

Target group: Machine operators

can apply their in-depth manufacturing knowledge with the hyperMILL
ShopViewer. Serious mistakes,
such as the choice of a wrong tool
or unproductive processes, can be

Usage area: The hyperMILL

ShopViewer is designed for
quick access in the manufacturing environment after
the CAM programming phase.

NOTE: The hyperMILL ShopViewer is only available for hyperCAD -S.

CAM strategies



hyperMAXX the High Performance Cutting module for

hyperMILL has been extended to include three new powerful

hyperMAXX now allows the tool used for HPC machining to
be plunged into the material at pre-drilled holes. hyperMAXX
automatically detects the best position from which to start the
machining from the various possible start holes. The entire
machining process is collision-checked.

Benet: Protects the tool.

Zigzag mode
Zigzag mode can be selected in the menu window. Large workpieces, in particular, can be machined very eciently in this
mode as time-consuming redundant movements are eliminated.
Benet: Signicantly shorter machining times and reduction of
unnecessary machine movements.

Selection of conventional machining

Conventional machining can be selected in hyperMILL 2014.2.
This type of machining is necessary when ceramic milling tools
are used. This method should also be used when soft materials
such as plastics are machined.

Macro and feature technology

Macro database
The macro and rule denition function of the macro database
has been improved signicantly.
Benet: Increased user friendliness.

Colour table editor

The colour table editor can be used to assign specic machining characteristics to colours. This makes it easier to transfer
geometric properties from external data as the assignment of
properties can be used in the feature recognition of geometries.
Benet: Increased safety thanks to clearly dened colours for
geometric properties.

HPC toolpaths with hyperMAXX

maximum results

hyperMAXX is the High Performance Cutting strategy (HPC) for hyperMILL . The strategy is based on VoluMill, a
tried-and-tested and best-in-class HPC technology from Celeritive Technologies, and on highly ecient special deve

lopments from OPEN MIND. The result: hyperMAXX is one of the most extensive and most powerful HPC packages for
generating trochoidal-style toolpaths.

Using this strategy, it is very easy to generate optimally distributed 2D, 3D and 5axis HPC paths. This allows CAM
programmers to always maximise machine performance.

Learning to work in hyperMAXX did not take long. In fact, it

took less than an hour. Our tool life has improved by 500 per
cent with respect to our components. This is why we believe in
doing everything with hyperMAXX . Its the best way forward!

In a class of its own among CAD systems

Only a high-end CAM developer can do CAD for CAM. With this in mind, Open Mind Technologies AG known as

an innovative pioneer developed a new CAD system from scratch that is perfectly matched to hyperMILL . The
system has its own 3D CAD kernel from OPENMIND. The result is a unique CAD system for CAM programmers that
is very easy to learn and that vastly accelerates NC programming processes.

hyperCAD -S fully exploits the performance oered by contemporary hardware systems to create digital manufacturing data. The advanced and extremely powerful 64-bit system is the perfect solution for mastering many of the
daily challenges that arise when working with meshes, faces and solids to create precise components and tools.
Large volumes of imported data can be prepared for subsequent NC programming easily, quickly and safely and

completely independently from the original CAD system. hyperCAD -S is pure CAD for CAM.

Smart selector technology

New and improved selection options for faces and curves.
Optimised chain selection
Faces with limits: Selects a face area that is limited by
selected faces.
Tangential faces: Selected tangential faces are highlighted.
Coplanar faces: Selects all coplanar faces within a linear or
angular tolerance from a reference face.
Coaxial faces: Selects all faces with the same coaxial axis.
Fillet faces: Selects all llets within a denable area.
Chamfer faces: Selects all chamfers within a denable area.
Benet: Time saving. Increased user friendliness. Fewer clicks.

Clipping plane
The Clipping plane function is used to generate a planar section
through a component. The selected clipping plane remains
active within other functions but does not aect the existing
geometry of the component.
Benet: Increased user friendliness. Better analysis and machining of components.

Better performance
Thanks to multi-threading, the calculation of the tessellation is
optimally distributed to all available processors which results in
signicantly reduced model loading times.

Benet: Time saving. Models are available for machining more

Solids efficient solid modelling

hyperCAD -S Solids the module for solid modelling was, of course, also developed primarily for CAM
programmers. In contrast to engineers and designers, this group requires features without a history during
solid modelling. Why make it complicated if doing it directly is quicker? With the innovative approach to

direct modelling oered by hyperCAD -S Solids, solid modelling becomes a real joy: After the faces or
features of a solid model have been selected, the position and shape of the faces of the solid model can
be modied in real time simply by dragging handles and manipulators. And the best thing is that direct modelling does not only work with native data but also with external data that have been imported and have
no feature history information.

The hyperCAD -S Solids module allows all solid models to be reliably imported, created, converted,
modied and combined. Working with solid models becomes noticeably easier and much more intuitive:
Chamfers, llets and holes can be directly moved, reduced, enlarged or deleted by means of recognised
features. The use of existing features and associated functionalities allows CAM programmers who work
with faces and solids to be more productive and exible.

Reliable import of external data: When external data are imported, they are handled in the same way as native CAD data.
All construction data, such as sketches, faces, single parts or
complete machining groups, are transferred and can be modied, if required.

Numerous standard features: Basic structures, linear

extrusions, rotational solids, linear and rotation slots,
pockets, simple and complex holes, patterns, chamfers
and llets can be created.

Time-saving zone feature: The zone feature also allows

creating user-specic features. Zones can be transformed, copied, deleted or also selected with hyperMILL .

Removing the component

from the attachment geometry using the Boolean
Dierence operation

Creating solid models from faces: All it takes is

a few clicks to create solid models quickly from
closed face formations and vice versa.

Working conveniently with features: Features that have

been created have no history and are not arranged in any
particular way. They are stored in the model tree for easy
selection. The faces of features can be moved using dragand-drop operations, in order, for example, to reposition
holes. After direct modelling, the shape is recalculated
automatically by the system. A wide range of functions
are available for machining the features: Delete, mirror, arrange as pattern, oset, move, scale and break.

Reliable feature recognition: Double-clicking an imported

face starts the feature recognition. Fillets and chamfers that
are recognised are created automatically as features whose
dimensions can then be modied again with a smart click.

All Boolean operations: Union, Dierence,

Intersection and Split are supported..
