Edgecam Offers Increased Memory Access


With the release of Edgecam 2016 R2, the software is now a 64-bit application that offers increased access to memory, which improves overall efficiency, especially when working with large files. The program is now able to load solid models up to 20 times faster than the previous version.

Among the software’s time-saving capabilities is the Waveform roughing strategy, a high-speed machining cycle that is available for milling and turning and delivers consistent tool-engagement with the material, thereby maintaining constant tool-cutting load. By generating smooth toolpath to avoid sharp changes in direction, Edgecam Waveform maintains machine-tool velocity while decreasing cycle time and increasing tool life.

Edgecam’s Rough Turn cycle now features a new Ramp Cut strategy, which is typically used for turning deep recesses with double- sided turning inserts, and extends tool life as the contact point on the insert is constantly changing, avoiding notching. The new strategy can be used with decreasing cut increments.


EDgecam 2016 R2 features:

  • Offers increased access to memory
  • Can load solid models up to 20 times faster
  • Waveform roughing strategy
  • Rough Turn cycle has new Ramp Cut strategy
  • Includes extended collision detection
