Autodesk HSMWorks 2018.2 (R3) Build R3.42596 | 595.2 mb
Autodesk Inc., a world leader in 3D design software for entertainment, natural resources, manufacturing, engineering, construction, and civil infrastructure, has released HSMWorks 2018.2 (R3) Build R3.42596, is an integrated 2.5- to 5-axis CAD/CAM programming solution for SOLIDWORKS.

Build R3.42596 / 2 October 2017

This release contains a number of important fixes and improvements, as identified below.

Added new strategy Probe to support common probing cycles for automatically updating the work offset.
Added support for approach mode for 2D Contour when machining a tapered wall. The default is to machine along the tapered wall. This setting allows the user to machine vertically instead so only the final pass will touch the wall. #6078
Added default description in Compare and Edit for the filter control to help explain its purpose. #8336
Changed filtering by capability such that the Milling filter no longer includes Mill-Turn posts in the post processing dialog. #8334
Changed presentation of the post configurations during post processing to primarily use the description from the post configuration itself. This ensures a better ordering of the posts. #8314
Added support for integer property definitions when using values with titles in the post processing dialog.
Add Renishaw Sample Probes library. #8302
Added advanced setting for Adaptive Clearing to control the cutting turn radius. You need to enable Advanced settings when editing the operation to see the new setting called "Curve In Radius". Alternatively you can use Compare and Edit to adjust its value. #7420
Added support for custom file filters for file path properties in the post processing dialog.
Added support for importing property definitions from the posts for nice presentation, validation and documentation.
Added progress indication when scanning posts during post processing.
Improved presentation of user defined properties in the post processing dialog and added additional error checking. #8100
Added "Keep Original" option to Duplication and Component pattern. #8094
Added support for singularity settings from machine configuration. These settings allow the post processor to adjust the toolpath at singularities for simultaneous multi-axis toolpath. #8083
Added support for SolidWorks 2018. #8066
Added Fixture Attachment point for Job. This is coordinate system can be used for integration with third party NC program simulation software. #7938
Added new API HSMWorks_getToolpathStats() to get toolpath statistics. #8033
Disabled deprecated Manage My Posts option from post processing dialog. #8337
Changed limit for angular settings to 10800 deg instead of 7200 deg.
Search field now has focus by default when opening the Compare and Edit dialog. #7908
Use the program name and comment for first job when multiple jobs are selected when post processing. #7515
Adjust layout of Tool Renumber dialog to make room for non-English translations. #7020
Fixed issue with Number of Stepovers parameter appearing twice for Swarf. #8228
Updated stock simulation to fix potential crashes and hangs.
Fixed issue with setting heights in Compare and Edit. #7883
Fixed performance issue where analyzing the model for holes could take significant time on parts with thousands of faces when making a drill operation. #8135
Fixed the default Fixed Size stock bounding box for the job. #7891
Fixed generation issue for Axis Substitution in 3D strategies. #8039
Fixed crash when enabling Tool Orientation issue when editing an operation. #7977
Fixed layout issue for 2D Chamfer which caused tolerance setting to be hidden. #7971
Removed unsupported lead radii for Turning Face. #7056
Removed unsupported stock to leave for Turning Chamfer. #1465
Avoid reapplication of feeds and speeds if the same tool is selected. #7557

Changes to toolpath generation:

Added support for merging multiple contours when they are touching for turning. #6156

Fixed potential failure during staydown for Adaptive Clearing. #7825
Fixed potential failure for Adaptive Clearing. #7294
Changed turning to return error when multiple disjoint contours are provided. #6156
Improved support for predrilling for 2D Contour to support cases where tool size is very close to the pocket being machining. #7675
Improved retract linking for Turning Profile. #7498
Improved toolpath quality near rotary axis for Turning Profile. #7545

Changes to post processor:

Added API PostProcessor.registerTerminationHandler() to register functions to be called at end of processing.
Added API for multi-axis singularity settings. See MachineConfiguration.setSingularity() for details.
