Delcam USA (Salt Lake City, UT) announces major enhancements to FeatureCAM’s automatic feature recognition (AFR) that automatically recognizes and machines complex holes for special applications. Supplementing the wide selection of standard hole configurations already recognized by FeatureCAM, the upgraded software enables users to specify custom hole dimensions, key geometric features, special-purpose tools, and exact machining parameters. As a result, hydraulic connections, SAE ports, mold base fittings, and other special holes can be automatically recognized and machined to desired specifications. Hole recognition is keyed to cylinders defined by hole diameters and depths; providing a range of dimensions permits recognition of a variety of holes within the parameters listed. Recognition can also be linked to data directly imported from selected CAD programs. Users can define machining parameters or use those native to FeatureCAM.
