hyperCAD®-S Solids: Efficient Solid Modelling
The optional hyperCAD®-S Solids module allows the user to work with solid models. hyperCAD®-S Solids offers an innovative approach to direct modelling.
The direct modelling in hyperCAD®-S involves first selecting the faces or features of a solid. The programmer can then modify the shape and position of the faces of a solid model in real time by simply dragging handles and manipulators. The best thing is that direct modelling works with native data as well as with imported data. Feature data can be created without any parametrics. The direct modelling used in hyperCAD®-S Solids module therefore represents real progress for CAM users.
More productive and flexible
The hyperCAD®-S Solids module allows all solids to be reliably imported, created, converted, modified and combined. When work is carried out in the CAD system, chamfers and fillets are recognised directly as features. The available features and their functionalities help the CAM programmer to work with faces and solids more productively and flexibly. hyperCAD®-S Solids makes working with solids noticeably easier and much more intuitive.
Features of hyperCAD-S Solids
Basic structures, linear extrusions, rotational solids, linear and rotation slots, pockets, simple and complex holes, patterns, chamfers and fillets can be created.
Features that have been created without parametrics can still be modified. They are stored in a model tree for easy selection. Features can be copied or moved using drag-and-drop operations, in order, for example, to reposition holes. After direct modelling, the shape is recalculated automatically by the system. A wide range of functions is available for processing features: Delete, mirror, arrange as pattern, offset, move, scale and break.
