3D Milling

KeyMachinist 3D milling includes all major machining strategies and calculates toolpaths exceptionally fast.

 

Machining Strategies

Roughing Strategies
  - Contour
  - Zig-zag
  - Uni-directional
  - Follow surface
  - Round

 


Finishing Strategies

  - Planar
  - Radial
  - Plateau
  - UV-flow
  - Circular (round)
  - Point milling (plunge)
  - Pencil tracing

Professional Options
KeyMachinist 3D milling provides powerful options for optimal machining times, setups, and results.

  - Tool containment using 2D and 3D curves
  - Helix, ramping, and plunge entry styles
  - Check surface control
  - Plane view machining (4-axis indexing)
  - Re-machining steep and shallow walls
  - Re-generation of toolpaths

 

Efficient Z-level contour roughing utility employing XY offset up to 90% of tool diameter, ensuring complete material removal and smooth motions at sharp corners via loops. Image courtesy of TriAxis Machine & Tool, North Royalton, OH
 
 
 
Advanced lace cutting with Z clipping planes and re-machining capabilities. The output stream is filtered and optimized with look-ahead for high speed milling, data smoothing and reduction with excellent proven results in machining time.

Plateau Finishing features constant Z with variable step-down based on wall steepness and continuous ramping / tool engagement
 
 
 
Round Finishing generates contours at a constant step along the surfaces, creating a very smooth finish regardless of the steepness or shape.
 
 
 
Wedging allows a precise Pencil Cut along the joint (intersection) of selectable two sets of drive/check faces.
