hyperMILL for HyperCADs

With hyperCAD®-S, OPEN MIND has developed CAD software that is perfectly tailored to its hyperMILL® CAM software. hyperCAD-S is entirely focused on the specific needs of CAM programmers.

CAM programmers use CAD systems differently from most engineers and designers. The traditional CAD tasks for CAM programmers include: selecting, adding, deleting, modifying, showing and hiding points, curves, and faces. Another job is to generate ruled, filling, and offset faces that must always meet the highest standards of quality.

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

hyperCAD-S impresses with a very streamlined user interface and a comprehensive interface package. Consistently implemented 64-bit technology and the powerful CAD kernel allow 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.

Innovative from the core

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 colors, 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 efficiently and quickly learning and understanding. Self-explanatory icons make working with the software intuitive from the very start.

Very important for CAM users: 

hyperCAD-S supports any number of freely definable workplanes, which can be saved with transformation/rotation data and can be selected as a reference. As many operator workstations are equipped with touchscreens, the toolbars and commands can also be operated via a touchscreen.

Customizable filter functions

In addition to familiar properties, such as layer and color, the most common geometric and system properties are available as user-defined filters. Graphic entities can be linked using tags, similar to keywords. This makes it easy to filter all the information regarding the CAD model.
