NCG CAM has the ability to automatically convert some types of 3-axis toolpaths to a 5-axis toolpath, which can save valuable machining time, tooling costs and tool life.
In most cases the 3 to 5-axis conversion of existing NCG CAM toolpath is for minimal side tilt only to avoid holder collisions, but other options include:
• 4 or 5-axis control
• Tilt away or through a point
• Tilt away or through a curve
• Lead / lag angles and side tilt
• Fixed tilt angle
