Depending on the tool selected and material to be machined, several roughing methods are offered, including set axis (different to z-axis). EUKLID CAD/CAM’s highly flexible slug definition guarantees short machining times, avoiding unnecessary paths and machining paths in the air.

Automatic updating of the stock model allows several tools in a sequence, for optimum machining in shortest time. The tool paths may be rounded with free selectable radii, making them specially suited for HSC (high speed cutting) machining.

Result: short machining times and long service times for the cutters.
