SDRC CAMAX/NCV Reference Manual

CAMAX/NCV, a numerical control verification software product, enables the NC programmer to visually verify an NC program before releasing it to the shop floor. Using standard NC files, CAMAX/NCV simulates the machining process. Users see the material being removed from the stock as the cutter proceeds along the tool paths specified by the NC programming file.
CAMAX/NCV significantly reduces the need for the physical verification process and its related costs.
CAMAX/NCV Product Features
• Simulation of complex multi-axis cutter motion. Material removal is displayed in full color shaded images.
• Material removed by each cutter can be automatically displayed in a different color.
• During simulation, machining parameters (feedrate, spindle speed, coolant flow, rapid motion warning) are dynamically displayed.
• The simulation can be stopped or slowed down at any time, for other operations or to inspect the toolpath more closely.
• The cursor can be used to point to any location on the model to determine the CL point responsible for any cut.
• Screen images can be saved at any time, during simulation, and reviewed later as either a screen snapshot or a hard copy, whichever is more convenient.
• A series of simulations can be run as an unattended batch, and the individual simulations can then be replayed in fast mode, with features to step forward and backward through the simulation.
• ASCII or binary format SLA files (.std) can be read, and the geometry from the file can be created as part, fixture or stock.
• A measurement capability is provided, by giving the x, y and z coordinates for any points selected by the user.
• An as-designed part from an SLA file can be graphically compared to the machined part; the as-designed part is displayed translucently and overcuts and undercuts are highlighted.
• The machining time is recorded during the simulation, and can be displayed at any time.
• To provide a better view of the cut part, you can remove from the display all material that has been cut away from the part.
• The images of the machined part can be rotated about the vertical axis at any time during or after simulation.
• Viewport background can be changed from dark blue to white to provide better contrast for screen hard copies.
• Multiple stock and fixture model definitions can be created.
• Optionally, a portion of the toolpath can be verified by either specifying a range of CL points or defining a box. Only the defined motions will be verified.
• Using the work-in-process (WIP) function, stock and fixture models can be saved at any point during a simulation.
• Errors are automatically identified with error messages displayed on the screen and saved with screen images.
• There are options that can be used to change cutter color and store enhanced images at each cutter change.
• Models can be sectioned through any specified plane either by using the mouse to digitize the point at which the part is to be sectioned, or by entering the coordinates and the plane normal for the point.
• Input files (the files specifying cutter motions) are automatically run through conversion programs, which can be either provided customized or written by the end-user.
