ZW3D 2014 CAM -New feature collection and forecast *
Message 1 of 5
I have just used the new CAM function, trim tool-path of tool-path edtior. And i can't help to share with all of you in advance.
Here is an example, the rest roughing had been generated, as following figure, Obviously, there are two unnecessary paths, they need to
Now let me show you how to deleted them easily with the trim funciton in our new tool-path editor.
please refer following video.

Thanks for your comment and interested.
I am sure it would be better to generate the perfect tool-path at first time, but sometimes it couldn't. for example, in the rest roughing, it has to detect the machining situation in terms of the previous roughing operation. It will have some terraces with much thickness allwance on the shallow areas if big value step-down in roughing.
If we ignore too much thickness of the allowance, it will affect the safety of the roughing in close region. on this example, we can limit the height region to estimate the tool-path, but this example just shows how easily erase the unnecessary tool-path intuitively, if there are more than one island, it would be easier to trim the tool-path.
on the other hand, rest roughing it would take much more time on tool-path calculation, especial for complicated part, if we adjust the parameters and calculation and to see if it can fulfill your requirement, but it takes much time. even more, sometimes you have to calculate several times. it would be better to trim them manually if something obviously and save time for you. here are just some of the reasons in practice.

ZW3D needs a much better user interface for toolpath editing. Here is an example of what I consider to be an excellent user interface for toolpath editing:
I'd also like to see ZW3D become a much more Feature based CAM rather than Process based CAM.
