|Welcome to the Advanced Machining
User's Guide. This guide is intended for users who need to become
quickly familiar with the Advanced Machining Version 5 product.
This overview provides the following information:
|Advanced Machining easily defines NC programs dedicated
to machining complex 3D parts (aerospace, hydraulic, turbo-machinery, and
so on) within a single workbench including 2.5 to 5-axis machining
technologies. Complementary to other V5 Machining solutions, this product
brings new functionalities in order to cover the entire machining process
in addition to existing key functionalities that speed up skill oriented
operations. All these functionalities overtake previous version CATIA
Machining solutions, and therefore surpass existing all-in-one CAM
Advanced Machining offers the following main functions:
|Before reading this guide, you should be familiar with
