Roughing and Re-roughing toolpaths are one of the cornerstones of WorkNC. The roughing phase of a productive CAM system allows users to significantly reduce machining times.
WorkNC Roughing allow toolpath generation with reduced air cutting time, localized retracts and corner smoothing adapted for HSM.
WorkNC automatically determines the areas where material has to be removed using its dynamic stock model management. Dynamic stock model management makes machining even more reliable by taking into account the cutting tool and the tool holder to dynamically update the roughing toolpath and eliminate collisions for any tool length.
The efficiency of re-roughing strategies is constantly improved and WorkNC has the ability to machine undercut areas using 3+2 axis strategies. The 3D stock model is systematically updated allowing successive re-roughing toolpaths to be run with progressively smaller tools.
