UK – Machineworks has just released its version 7.4 CNC simulation software.

The V7.4 simulates additive and substractive processes in a single environment. The company says that flexibility and customisation are offered, providing hybrid manufacturing processes through different APIs – the Boolean operations calculate material removal in reverse to the adding of material: be it layer by layer addition or cutting material on the same stock.

The new algorithm for 5-axis swept volume generation in V7.4 is also said to provide improved finished surface quality and faster performance yet maintaining accuracy and stability.

A new sampling engine offers accuracy of graphical representation whilst maintaining a constant memory footprint throughout simulation. The engine can retain surface detail even when zoomed-in that is normally lost when using sampling technology.

Machineworks’ customers who were privy to the beta version helped with their contributions to shape V7.4 into its final form, the company notes.
