Be at the forefront of CAM technology - PowerMill Top 6 Features
Create, control and simulate deposition strategies for high-rate additive manufacturing. Combine subtractive toolpaths for a flexible hybrid manufacturing platform. (video: 2:40 min.)
PowerMill setups help you manage workplanes, stock, and clamps on parts machined across multiple operations, making it easier to use different fixture setups, or run batches of the same part. (video: 6:36 min.)
Vortex from stock
PowerMill's Vortex high speed machining strategy now includes a new Vortex From Stock option for more efficient roughing toolpaths and significantly faster cycle times. (video: 1:06 min.)
2D Machining Improvements
PowerMill 2019 includes a new sides feature that simplifies the process of defining and machining open sided pockets, allowing you to further reduce the time & effort needed to program 2D components. (video: 1:04 min.)
Automatic Tool Tilting
PowerMill offers a new automatic tool tilting option to make it easier to produce collision free toolpaths and near misses on 5-axis machines, offering peace-of-mind for lights-out machining. (video: 0:58 min.)
Create probing toolpaths to measure parts with spindle mounted touch probes that monitor and measure the accuracy of CNC machined parts, and share your results via Autodesk Drive. (video: 2:07 min.)
Subscriptions now include Fusion 360
We're committed to offering our subscribers the best Autodesk design and manufacturing tools to allow them to be more competitive. Beginning Friday 30th November 2018, subscribers of PowerMill®, FeatureCAM®, PowerShape®, and PowerInspect®✝, will receive access to Fusion 360 at no additional cost.
Fusion 360 is an integrated, connected, and accessible platform which brings CAD, CAM, and CAE together in one product.
Enhanced CAD modelling
Use AnyCAD to improve data translation. Access powerful solid and assembly modelling tools to prepare models for manufacture. Create stronger, lighter products automatically with generative design.
Integrated CAD and CAM
Gain additional CNC programming capabilities with integrated CAD and CAM workflows. Quickly convert 3D designs into NC code. Manage design changes with automatic model and toolpath updates.
Simulation and collaboration
Use Fusion 360 to produce photo-realistic renderings and simulations. Validate designs with fit and function tests then share with your engineering teams using enhanced cloud-based collaboration.
Delta Technologies reveal how they acquired new customers by using Autodesk tools to automate the design and manufacture of electrodes, reducing operator workload, reducing the risk of human error, and minimising lead times.
PowerMill 2019.1 also offers a number of unsung performance improvements. If you haven't seen PowerMill 2019.1 in action, then view our recent webinar to discover the enhanced programming tools developed to meet the demands of your most challenging CNC machining applications.
