FeatureCAM Standard

Includes all of:

FeatureMILL 2.5D - FeatureMILL2.5D enables you to machine holes, pockets, grooves, bosses and threads quickly and easily.
Imports industry standard file types such as .igs, .dwg and .dxf, for easy communication with your customers.
Creates reliable toolpaths quickly and easily with the help of step-by-step wizards, saving you time.
Combines single part programs into multiple part programs, minimising programming times.
Outputs code for all major machine tools, reducing machine commissioning time.

FeatureTURN - FeatureTURN provides quick and easy programming of all types of turned parts.
Creates both common and specialist hole types, facing and cut-off features, and grooves and threads on the outside or inside diameter, letting you machine all types of turned component.
Supports a wide range of canned cycles, including rough and finish profiling, threading, grooving, drilling and tapping, making the most efficient use of your machine controller.
Posts code to almost any CNC controller on the market today, letting you machine successfully from day one.
Supports machines with sub-spindles, bar feeders and bar pullers, increasing productivity by reducing material loading times.

FeatureWIRE - FeatureWIRE offers an automated approach for the programming of 2-axis and 4-axis wire EDM equipment.
Automatically provides the operations for different cutting strategies.
Includes a cutting conditions database that contains wire EDM generator settings, flushing and cutter compensation settings.
Outputs code for all industry-leading machines, including Agie-Charmilles, Fanuc, Mitsubishi and Sodick.
Supports a range of features for part creation, including dies, punches and sides.

FeatureRECOGNITION - Includes the following features for part creation:

Importing
With FeatureRECOGNITION, you can directly import 3D surface files (.igs, .dxf), 3D solid files (Acis .sat, Parasolid .x_t), native SolidWorks (.sldprt) files, SolidWorks Assemblies (.sldasm), native Autodesk Inventor (.ipt, .iam) files and native SolidEdge (.par, .psm, .asm) files. With the Direct CAD Model Transfer add-in, you can transfer SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor models directly into FeatureCAM with a single click.

Recognising Features
All FeatureCAM products are designed to accelerate part programming, and give you the power to increase your productivity. FeatureRECOGNITION automates this further by providing an efficient solution for converting imported 3D CAD models to CNC parts. When 3D models are imported into traditional CAM systems, tedious edge extraction tools must be used to remodel the part in order to generate toolpaths. With FeatureRECOGNITION, features are created directly from solid or surface files. This includes features from milled, turned, 4-axis indexing, and turn/mill parts.
FeatureRECOGNITION is included with the Standard module for FeatureMILL2.5D and FeatureTURN.

Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR)
Once a 3D solid model is imported, Automatic Feature Recognition allows you to program entire 2D parts with a single click. It even recognizes holes around indexed or turn/mill parts and holes that are partially cut away by another feature. It automatically recognizes turned features, bores and grooves from imported turned solids. It recognizes sides, bosses, and pockets from the New Feature Wizard. AFR's associativity compares the initial imported model to revised model imports and identifies any changes. In addition, imported solid files are monitored for changes. When you open the corresponding FeatureCAM (.fm) file, you are alerted if there have been any changes made to the original CAD file. FeatureRECOGNITION also includes automatic hole recognition and suppression directly from SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor files.

Interactive Feature Recognition
For more precise control, you can use Interactive Feature Recognition. It recognizes drafted features and extracts complex milling features directly from surface or solid models. You create features quickly and interactively without typing.

Customisation
After FeatureRECOGNITION creates the features, you can modify it by adjusting its location and adding draft angles, edge breaks or bottom radii.

Efficient NC Code
Small linear segments represent the edges of many surface models, even if the original surfaces of the model were created from a combination of lines and arcs. Since FeatureRECOGNITION works with the surfaces, not the edges, the resulting milling features will contain the arcs with efficient G2 and G3 moves.
