Open Mind Technologies AG, headquartered in Wessling, Germany, a developer of CAD/CAM software solutions, has released hyperMILL® 2020.2, an updated version of its CAD/CAM software suite which offers users new and enhanced features for efficient 3D and 5-axis machining.

A key strategy in the latest hyperMILL CAM software releases is the ADDITIVE Manufacturing process which reportedly supports additiveAM and subtractive machining on one machine tool. Open Mind states that its hyperMILL ADDITIVE Manufacturing technology offers flexible strategies for additive material applications, including filling strategies for both planes and free-form shapes, and in 2D and 3D sections. Applications also include hybrid machining to fix damaged parts and additive machining of an existing component.

“We continue to improve the hyperMILL user experience with new, optimised strategies, as well as provide easier to use interfaces and even more efficient filtering and feature management functions,” stated Alan Levine, Managing Director of Open Mind Technologies USA, Inc. “Also, enhanced functionality in our Mill-Turn, hyperCAD® -S and AUTOMATION Center modules are all key to continually improving the user experience and increasing machining productivity.”

According to the software company, a hyperMILL AUTOMATION Center Advanced option offers numerous additional features and extensive templates to the software’s automation capabilities. Templates allow the user to define and standardise complex processes independent of the specific geometry from any one CAD model.

Components can now be modelled parametrically directly in hyperCAD® -S, especially helpful for fast, production-related designs. Parametric geometry data used in hyperMILL is associatively linked, and when there are any changes, is automatically updated.
