Experience 2.5 Axis Milling – now included in Solid Edge mechanical design

Transform your manufacturing and maximize your design data with the powerful, automated tools of fully integrated Solid Edge CAD/CAM solutions. Solid Edge now includes 2.5-axis milling for customers with Solid Edge Foundation, Classic, and Premium licenses under an active maintenance contract.* CAM Pro 2.5 Axis allows users to maintain full associativity with design data, while instilling confidence with automated tool path creation and visualizations for optimized machining processes.

What’s included?

The included 2.5 Axis CAM package, based on NX CAM, has the same capabilities as the full 2.5 Axis package. It includes advanced capabilities such as adaptive milling for 2.5 axis operations, which were previously available only in 3- and 5-axis milling. Adaptive milling is an innovative process that improves productivity while providing longer cutting tool life. This is achieved by delivering consistent tool load while removing high rates of material.

Another included capability is planar deburring, a new feature that improves the quality of parts manufactured using 2.5-axis milling by automatically identifying and removing burrs and sharp edges along planar faces.

This package includes access to more than 1300 postprocessors via Post Hub. You can filter using several different criteria to find exactly the one you need. Post Hub is constantly being updated with new posts.

Included CAM provides a great upgrade path to 3-axis, 5-axis, turning, and more.
