Hello All, I'm looking for cam software that is able to mill with simultaneous 4 axis motion. specifically what im looking for is a cam program that will look at a solid free flowing shape and use all 4 axis to maintain the tool as close to a 90 deg perpendicular position while milling as possible. Does anybody know of any programs? Also what would this machining strategy be called? thanks
Mastercam has several toolpaths that will do this, but think the Rolldie chook would be your best bet if doing like cam dies. If free flowing shape then any of the 5 axis toolpaths in a 4 axis out put will do it just fine. email me a model and I will throw some toolpaths on something for you.
