OPEN MIND Technologies AG: hyperCAD-S is ready to go
24 September 2013
Wessling (Germany), 23 September 2013 – With hyperCAD-S®, OPEN MIND Technologies AG has developed its own CAD system perfectly matched to the hyperMILL® CAM system. This CAD solution is specifically designed to address the requirements of NC programmers.
hyperCAD-S® has been redeveloped from scratch, with the architecture, core, graphics, database, user interface and API all being new software designs. The new system is integrated much more closely with CAM-specific tasks than hyperCAD®. The newly-developed hyperCAD-S® core is perfect for imported data. Users can easily modify any of the geometry elements at any time. Curves and free-form surfaces are depicted using Bezier and NURBS geometries. As well as all the standard basic design elements, the core also provides a number of elements that specifically aid CAM programmers, including tool paths, polygon networks, point clouds and a rectangle element.
The new user interface
“Our user interface for hyperCAD-S® is modern and user-friendly, and we made sure to accommodate all the latest ergonomic considerations,” says Wolfgang Weiss, Product Manager. Again, the overriding design principle was: ‘What CAM users want’. The result is a clearly structured GUI that does not rely on any hidden options.
First release version to contain all main basic functions
The first version of hyperCAD-S® will run in 64-bit and offer a broader range of functions than the hyperCAD® Geometric Engine. “There are significant differences,” emphasises Weiss. “The structure for Selection and Visibility has been implemented completely new due to customer requirements.”
