  2. 2. 9 MACHINE E SIMULATION www. bobcad. com ill I _‘ . . _. . / ’ _ . .. CNC Machine Simulation software allows the machinist to test out a CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) NC/ G-Code program or created machine toolpath visually BEFORE actually using the program on the machine itself. Typically Machine Simulation is used with CAD/ CAM Software for CNC Milling, Turning, Routing, WaterJet, Laser. Burning and Plasma machining and for a wide range of applications. vowed-= vHU| JEHfl-EHI1 AR

  4. 4. What Is. .. “Single Window” ' “Sing| e-Window" means that the simulation program ' has launched inside the software and not as a separate product. This helps keep actions in one place and makes the software easier to use. www. bobcad. com Powered M
  5. 5. What Are. .. “Machine Kine£a_1j_c. s” “Kinematics” is the branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of points, bodies (objects) and systems of bodies (groups of objects) without consideration of the causes of motion. Therefore Machine Kinematics are all of the components of your machine tool. These components go so far as to include tool holder, tools and even other parts of the machine tool and controller. These are input into the simulation software and used to visualize your machine during simulation. www. bobcad. com powered fi
  6. 6. What is. .. “Work Holding” A “fixture" is a work-holding or support device used in the manufacturing industry. When it comes to CNC Machining, work-holding can be considered a “tool" and is an important part of the CNC Machining process. Machine Simulation should include the ability to show fixtures so that the programmer can ensure that there will not be any collisions or potentially costly problems once actual machining starts. www. bobcad. com powered R
  7. 7. What is: .. _ _ “Deviation Analysis” : ‘ A machined part “Deviation Analysis” is the process of simulating the machining operations in a CNC program and being able to see where the tools that were used were not able to go. Thus, left-over material is displayed or represented by various colors. This type of analysis allows the programmer to include REST or finishing operations that will remove the left-over or unwanted material. www. bobcad. com P0W°| ’°d . ..iiunc| in—i; ni1 Ax

  9. 9. More Important. .. “Simulation Be__i1’e_fi; l'. s” i ‘ I Machine Simulation software i ‘ provides machine component and ' part collision detection. Simulation is important for 4 axis users verification and posting confidence, as the location the part is mounted to the rotary can greatly affect the position movements needed in Post Processing. Users can very easily relocate their parts on their machine to make sure their machining strategy is optimally defined. The goal is the elimination of error and the reduction of waste while adding efficiency to your CNC machining process. www. bobcad. com powered R
