5 axis videoOur CAM guru demonstrates how to optimize models and UV lines of surfaces for swarf cutting. This topic shows the power and depth of Siemens NX milling and modeling tools. Join Michael Grant as he goes over some surfacing solutions for doing advanced 5-axis. Hopefully this gives you more tools in your toolbox for dealing with certain parts that might be giving you trouble.

Depending on how parts are modeled and the quality, and also where they come from (which CAD system) it will determine how easy they are to program in 5-axis. When you encounter problematic faces, you certainly need to look at the UV lines, and if you're not aware, CAM systems look at either edges or UV lines as one solution for multi-axis swarf cutting. We encounter these problems in our own precision machine shop and want to share some of what we've learned.

We held this webinar on Thursday, August 17, 2017
