FeatureCAM automates the creation of reliable NC code for a wide variety of machine tools including mills, routers, multi-tasking lathes and wire EDMs. Minimise errors and reduce training costs by using a single CAM system to program all your machine tools.
FeatureRECOGNITION is a powerful way to simplify and accelerate programming. By programming parts based on features in the CAD model, FeatureCAM streamlines machining and makes it easier to create and edit parts. FeatureCAM provides manual, interactive and fully automatic feature recognition(AFR). AFR identifies all 2D, 3D, Turn, Turn/Mill and Wire EDM features, including features that overlap or intersect. Features are fully associative with the CAD model so that design revisions are re-machined automatically.
The knowledge-based technology in FeatureCAM gives you a powerful CAM system that combines automation with control. FeatureCAM generates toolpaths based on the features of the part and then automatically selects appropriate tools, determines roughing and finishing passes, and calculates feeds and speeds based on the software's built-in machining knowledge. You can easily edit the settings to suit the needs of your company or project, or according to your individual preferences.
Ease of Use
Ease of use is a guiding principal in the development of FeatureCAM. Graphical feedback, step-by-step wizards and tutorial-style animations run directly in the program dialog boxes. Ease of use has always been a FeatureCAM advantage and with feedback from our customers we continue to study ways to make the software even easier to learn and use.
FeatureCAM offers a comprehensive solution for milling, turning, turn/mill and wire EDM. All of your machine tools can be programmed within a single user interface designed to shorten programming times and reduce the learning curve for new users. Integrated 3D machine simulation, together with a library of over 350 fully customisable post-processors, lets you visualise exactly how your parts will be machined.
Its intuitive interface, feature-based approach, and automation make it easy to use and fast to learn, reducing your training costs.
It generates toolpaths using multiple-cores, 64-bit processing, and high-performance algorithms, shortening your lead times and getting your machines cutting metal sooner.
It provides a wide range of machining technologies, enabling you to program any type of machine, from mills to multi-tasking lathes and wire EDMs, quickly and efficiently.
Its modular structure lets you grow your CAM system as you grow your business.
It is based on over 30 years of continuous development and shares technology with other Delcam products, resulting in some of the most thoroughly tested toolpaths available in any CAM system.
