NCG CAM Solutions Ltd are pleased to release NCG CAM 16.0.03. These are mainly just little fixes, mainly for a fix in some of the 5 axis toolpaths and because it was discovered that a certain combination of mouse hits could crash NCGCAM.
V16.0.03 - Release date: 18 April 2018

5579 : Machine simulation: The ModuleWorks libraries have been updated to fix a problem with the Simulator not starting up correctly in some instances.
5584 : Fixed failure to load files in the demonstration version.
5588 : Shaft Profile Analysis: We now block changing of the source plan for shaft profile analysis.
5590 : Fixed an issue when running macros where operations dependent on a shaft profile analysis plan that generated warnings would not run.
5593 : Tool-sheets: CSV tool sheets may now be opened in Libre Office and Open Office by the Toolsheet->View menu. It now works when the project name contains spaces. Because some countries will use "," (comma) as a decimal separator, the CSV toolsheet uses 'Tab' as the separator. Excel attempts to auto detect this, but with Libre Office and Open Office 'Tab' will need to be selected as the separator by the user.
5597 : User Interface: Selecting a Boundary folder followed by clicking the toolpath dropdown would cause NCGCAM to crash, this has now been fixed.
5609 : User Interface : The output of a VRML tool was not working correctly with German settings, this has now been fixed.
- Documentation: Replaced a reference in manual to DEPOCAM with NCG CAM.
- Translations: Updated the Japanese TMJ, German and the Portuguese Brazilian translations

About NCG CAM V16. NCG CAM Solutions Ltd, UK officially released NCG CAM v16.0 on 15th January 2018. This major release includes a number of new features including Selected Surface Machining for Waterline Passes, Combined Passes for Waterline & Constant Stepover, Tangential Extension for Raster Passes, 5-Axis Flank Machining, as well as many new user interface features and enhancements.

In NCG CAM v16.0, a new feature had been added to extend the ability of the �Machine Selected Surfaces' to include Waterline passes. This new feature in NCG CAM v16.0 extends the ability of the �Machine Selected Surfaces' to include Waterline passes. This provides the ability to machine up to the surface edges without the need to create a boundary, in the same way as can be selected for the Shallow strategies, Raster, Radial and Spiral.

A new routine is now available that allows the creation of Waterline Passes between the upper angle of 90� down to a specified lower angle. Constant Stepover Passes are then created to 'fill in' the shallow areas between the specified lower angle and 0�. Linking is a single operation from the top down, so that the linking order is a combination of waterline, constant stepover, waterline, etc. This strategy will give a smoother finish because it allows the machining to be done in a single operation, avoiding the problem of cutter wear. Another new feature in NCG CAM v16.0 allows Hole Plans in the Tree View to be �Tagged' and identified with a coloured marker if they have previously been used to generate drilling cycles. This visual difference makes it easier to identify the remaining holes that require machining.

In previous software versions, extending raster passes, would allow the cutter to roll over the edge. A new extension option creates passes that are extended at a tangent to the ends of the existing passes and therefore extend the path beyond and away from the material being cut. The result of this is that sharper edges are maintained. A horizontal pass extension has also been added.

A new feature has been added to give the ability to trim the passes back by a small amount, which will eliminate any slight marking that could potentially be left on vertical walls immediately in front of the passes.

A new feature to calculate the cutting direction vector using 2 mouse clicks that snap to the wire frame model to determine the angle, is now available. This will save the user time, as currently, if an accurate angle is required, the model must be interrogated manually. While the Passes Dialog is open, the coordinates are recovered from the model in the Graphics Window. The result is then entered into the �Angle' field in the dialog.

The basic style of the user interface has remained unchanged since this CAM software was first produced. Modernising various aspects of the interface is in the process of being addressed and will be rolled out in NCG CAM v16 point releases.
