CAMWorks® VoluMill™ is ideal for complex 3-D shapes and prismatic parts as its algorithms result in more intelligent toolpaths to machine pockets, slots, and arbitrary shapes. VoluMill is well suited for machining soft as well as hard materials that are hard to chip, such as titanium, nickel-based alloys or stainless steel. The result is increased efficiency and utilization of machines, tools, labor and materials.
Program Smarter, Machine Faster! The high-performance roughing module, which is fully integrated in CAMWorks, combines optimal milling paths and maximum material removal with minimized machining times. VoluMill’s unique approach to high speed material removal allows the programmer to determine the optimum material removal rate for any combination of part geometry, material, machine, and cutting tool. Material is removed in the most effective way possible. Consequently, machines run smoothly and tools run cooler.
- Reduce your Cycle Times up to 80%
- Reduce your programming times up to 50%

Missler Software has chosen to integrate VoluMill machining strategies into TopSolid’Cam 7.8 to be able to offer its customers the best algorithms on the market for toolpath calculation. VoluMill toolpaths use smooth, flowing motion, eliminating sharp directional changes and variances in tool load. Using VoluMill in place of traditional roughing routines will reduce your cycle times, extend the life of your cutting tools, and place considerably less stress on your machine tools, thereby reducing your costs while increasing your productivity.
Depending on the material and topology in question Missler Software has observed significant time gains in machining operations, extended tool and machine life thanks to the use of VoluMill. Completely integrated with TopSolid’Cam, VoluMill is available as an option in TopSolid’Cam 7.8.

Numerical Control Computer Sciences (NCCS) is dedicated to providing state of the art CAD/CAM software solutions to the manufacturing industry with special emphasis in the complex four- and five-axis CAM software. Our goal is to assist our users with complex design and intricate machining, in addition to providing outstanding training, service and support.
Strategy for high-performance cutting (HPC)
Milling with hyperMAXX®.
High-performance cutting means greater material removal due to large infeed depth and a smaller lateral infeed. The hyperMAXX® roughing strategy avoids full cutting, sharp corners and edges in the path, thereby preventing abrupt changes in direction that drastically reduce the feedrate. This is how we achieve consistent cutting conditions and thereby constant tool load. Feedrates and infeeds no longer have to be entered as a precaution for unfavourable local conditions; instead, the programmer can work from the best-case scenario.
Depending on the existing cutting conditions, hyperMAXX® dynamically adjusts the feedrate to attain the maximum possible feedrate at all times. This enables the highly efficient material removal with high process stability, thereby reducing machining times significantly. hyperMAXX®is suitable for the machining of both hard and soft materials.
VoluMill-hyperMAXX® for hyperMILL® is available only through
authorized OPENMIND Resellers. To locate your local hyperMILL reseller,

The guiding philosophy at Celeritive is to develop and supply economical and simple to implement toolpath generation solutions that allow CNC machine tools and cutting tools to operate at peak performance. Through dramatically reduced cycle times, manufacturing operations become more profitable, flexible, competitive, and maximize return on their capital investments.
SOLIDWORKS® CAM is a fully integrated, Knowledge Based technology that allows you to integrate design and manufacturing processes under one system to evaluate designs earlier in the process to avoid unexpected costs and delays in finishing products on time. It leverages the rich content in the 3D CAD model to speed up product development and reduce error prone, time consuming, repetitive manual steps in the current development process, like programming CNC machines. Knowledge Based Machining (KBM) is the foundation for streamlining the programming process, learning as you program which frees up your time to focus on the critical areas of the components.
SOLIDWORKS CAM is an add-in to all versions of SOLIDWORKS Desktop. It provides you with the ability to:
- Recognize certain types of geometry not only as CAD features, but to understand how much those features will be manufactured, and even how much it will cost to manufacture
- Read tolerances and surface finishes and make decisions about how to manufacture the product
- Automatically apply best manufacturing strategies that you like to use so that manufacturing processes can be not only faster, but also more standardized
- Automate quoting and compare it to traditional methods to ensure all aspects of the part are accounted for ahead of time
Features also include:

- Model Based Definition (MBD) is leveraged to ensure machining strategies are automatically adjusted based on tolerance specifications
- Automatic Feature Recognition allows prismatic parts to be automatically programmed while referencing programming standards
- 2.5 axis functionality including part & assembly machining
ZWSOFT is an international CAD/CAM software provider through its network of over 300 partners in 80+ countries and regions.

VoluMill Plug-in Technology - You Can Leverage VoluMill Regardless of Your Current CAM System
The fact that VoluMill is developed independently from any one CAM system, you can use it with just about any CAM platform. Even though it's tightly integrated and available as an option for CAMWorks, Cimatron E, GibbsCAM, NCCS, OPEN MIND, Siemens NX, and TopSolid, VoluMill is also available as a standalone product - VoluMill NEXION. Our integrated editions make it easy for CAM users to start leveraging VoluMill within hours from when they first install it. This is possible because the menu structures and commands are exactly where they should be - native to the CAM system.
A Two-Hour Learning Curve
Not only does VoluMill offer significant performance increases during the rough milling process, it also saves your team tons of programming time. How is this possible you might ask? The simple answer is that VoluMill focuses specifically on applications used for rough milling. So when programmer needs to create a toolpath using VoluMill, they experience a simple, intuitive, and task-focused interface. Most end-users of VoluMill will tell you that they learned how to use the application in just a couple hours, and on average, they have reduced their time spent creating toolpaths by thirty-percent or more.
No Special Machine Tool Requirements
VoluMill produces toolpaths that even the loads on machine tools and cutting tools, enabling them to cut faster and deeper while under greatly reduced stress. Because of this, VoluMill can work with any machine tool regardless of its capabilities. Whether you have a high-powered machine, or an older low-end machine, the benefits of a VoluMill toolpath still exist, however the total gains in efficiency may be limited due to the overall limitations of the machine tool. Many customers with older machines avoided additional capital expenditures because of the significant increases in performance they realized by using VoluMill.
