OneCNC Feature Recognition
Automatic recognition of hole
Although there has been development for recognizing
hole features in solid models, most work in this area
has focused on developing techniques that hang onto other
third party solids libraries.
We at OneCNC believe a complete
solution requires that the software needs to have direct access
to the solids core and not a third party addition. OneCNC
has accomplished that. OneCNC has a function to
automatically find the rotational plane of an angled hole in a
model. This unique ability can find the plane of holes even in
surface models because of the hybrid ability of the product.
Multi axis machining is also no problem because
OneCNC will recognize holes on any selected or set
OneCNC has pursued excellence in this development to provide
never-seen-before utilization of this fully integrated approach.
The development of this has allowed the feature to be recognized
as a part of the model surfaces or just pure geometry on all
planes. Undaunted by the scope of this undertaking OneCNC is
continuing on the way to be a leader and innovator in this
Solids is the way to go
OneCNC has developed this technology to such an extent
that it is included now in all versions of milling
CAD-CAM from the 2 1/2 D OneCNC Express version through
to the OneCNC Mill Expert Version. OneCNC believes that
solids technology should be used in all versions as we believe
that 2 1/2 D can equally benefit from feature recognition
technology as the high level OneCNC Mill Expert software.
