Only a CAM developer can do CAD for CAM

With hyperCAD®-S, OPEN MIND has created a CAD solution that is fully oriented to the requirements of CAM users. Efficient CAM programming is of primary importance, and it is the job of the CAD system to provide comprehensive support for this.

hyperCAD®-S  comes with unique, CAM-specific functions and thus forms a new standard among CAD systems. For example, the tool paths that are typical for CAM programming are also a separate element type just like lines or faces.

Ground-breaking CAD/CAM integration
Innovative from the core
Intelligent architecture & Modern user interface
Comprehensive interface package

hyperCAD®-S impresses with a very streamlined user interface and a comprehensive interface package.  Powerful CAD kernel allows for lightning-fast transition to the CAM area. Direct access to all CAD functions has a noticeable effect on the overall performance of the CAD/CAM system.

This ground-breaking CAD/CAM integration enables more efficient CAD processes and unrestricted CAM programming. hyperMILL® CAM software benefits directly from hyperCAD®-S and its unprecedented functional scope. This allows hyperMILL® programmers to get the most out of their machines and saving time in the process.

The innovations start in the system kernel. It contains different element types for lines and faces, such as cylindrical, plane, free-form, rotational, and various other faces. The advantage: In NC programming, all circular faces – and therefore all drill holes, divided again according to specific diameter, can be combined elegantly and processed efficiently with the same drilling strategy. Toolpaths, polygon meshes, point clouds, rectangles, and workflows are greatly accelerated by shifting the most common CAM-related elements to the CAD kernel. This greatly accelerates processes.

Intelligent architecture

hyperCAD®-S was designed for Windows. The new database offers smart element management. In addition to familiar filters, such as for layers and colours, it is also possible to filter according to geometric, system-based, and user-defined properties.

Modern user interface

hyperCAD®-S has been presented as a graphically modern, clearly arranged interface that is user-friendly for efficiency and quickly learning and understanding. Self-explanatory icons make working with the software intuitive from the very start.

CAD Interfaces for Smooth Data Exchange Processes
hyperCAD®-S allows you to import CAD data from other systems and formats quickly and securely.

A comprehensive and powerful interface package makes it possible to import data between different CAD systems and hyperCAD®-S without any problems. Then you can benefit from a CAD environment that is perfectly tailored to the requirements of CAM programmers, and, at the same time, use all the entities, properties, and structures from your original CAD data.
This means that you have all the familiar information from your original CAD system at your disposal when you work in hyperCAD®-S:
Entities

  • Points
  • Curves
  • Faces
  • Solids
  • Assembly features
  • Axis systems
  • Texts
  • Tessellations
  • Datum planes

Properties

  • Colors
  • Layers
  • Names
  • Threads
  • ISO fits

You can easily import individual parts, variants, and modules as well as all product manufacturing information (PMI).

Product Manufacturing Information (PMI)

The complexity of the various parts and components makes it necessary to use PMI safely in the design data and in manufacturing. hyperCAD®-S is able to import and display geometric dimensions and tolerances (“GD&T” information), surface finishes, and metadata with notes. Machine-readable PMI, also referred to as “semantic PMI”, can be evaluated and processed directly by hyperMILL®. This makes it possible, for example, to assign tolerance specifications directly to the respective machining jobs and apply them there.
