Autodesk Inc., a world leader in 3D design software for entertainment, natural resources, manufacturing, engineering, construction, and civil infrastructure, has released an update to PowerMill 2018. This software provides comprehensive milling strategies for high-speed and 5-axis machining. Get tools for manufacturing molds, dies, and complex parts.

Summary of Fixed Issues for 2018.1.4
Toolpaths
- Fix a major bug with workplane angles not output in 3+2 toolpaths.
- Area clearance toolpaths involving flat extensions now more reliable.
- Fix a potential crash in centreline toolpaths (detected via Customer Error Reporting).
Toolpaths
- Ctrl+P shortcut now works as expected.
Summary of Fixed Issues for 2018.1.3
Vericut Plugin
- The list of workplanes wasn't correctly updated after a workplane was created, edited or deleted in PowerMill.
- A global workplane has been added, which defaults to PowerMill's transform when no workplane is active.
- Various options are now set to default values instead of empty boxes.
- Work offsets are now correctly set.
- Simplify the user interface for block selection to make it less confusing.
- Simplify the user interface for setting a stock transition workplane to make it less confusing.
- The version was updated to 2018.0.15
Toolpaths
- External thread milling now orders cutting passes from outside in rather than from inside out.
- Reduce the amount of memory consumed when calculating centreline toolpaths.
- Fix a crash when calculating a clone of a toolpath which was limited to a boundary and was subsequently deleted.
- The `Turns` parameter for external thread milling can now be set to values less than 1.
- Fix a potential crash in corner machining (detected via Customer Error Reporting).
- Fix a crash and a failure to calculate toolpaths using automatic collision checking and negative thickness.
- Fix a crash when calculating pattern finishing and surface projection toolpaths with a user-defined tool axis and flat bottomed tools with no radius component.
NC Programs and Simulation
- Better determine when multi-axis connection moves between toolpaths in an NC Program should be output.
- Fix a crash when simulating an NC Program with a workplane at the end and tool changes set to occur before connections.
- The simulation of drilling toolpaths now respects the toolpath's orientation vector.
Models
- Child items in hierarchical models should inherit their parent's attributes.
- Do not offer to reimport models when batch processing.
- Fix a bug where reference models were being read back as machinable models.
Drilling Methods
- The 'Select by' list will no longer show duplicate entries due to the fact that they match multiple criteria.
General
- Fix stability issues relating to progress updates (detetected via Customer Error Reporting).
- Fix some untranslatable strings in the user interface.
- Further work to speed up opening of strategy dialogs.
- Fix an issue where a tapping tool was losing precision after entering its pitch value through the user interface.
- Ensure that the Tool.Status parameter accurately reflects the status of the tool as displayed in the user interface.
- Fix a bug where the F3 keyboard shortcut was always reverting to plain model shading, rather than remembering the last known shading type.

About Autodesk PowerMill 2018. The major new update for PowerMill is a ribbon-style user interface, which is something the team has been working on since Autodesk acquired Delcam in 2014. You will still be able to easily find and access important tools, but the 2018 version categorise functionality into similar groupings, with the most commonly used features front and centre. The new interface is designed to provide an improved user experience and help shorten the learning curve.

Other customer-driven updates to PowerMill 2018 include:

- Dynamic machine control: the ability for users to dynamically change the 5-axis motion of toolpaths using a virtual machine twin. This new update allows users to make localised edits to regions of toolpaths for greatly improved control of CNC machine motion whilst also helping to minimise programming time
- Improved stock simulation: PowerMill now provides a higher quality simulation image that can be zoomed, panned and rotated, allowing users to review the quality of their programs and, ultimately, provide greater confidence that the stock is being machined as specified
- Enhanced turning abilities, including collision checking, editable toolpaths and a greater choice of leads and links, which in turn provide users with increased flexibility and control
- New 2D strategies simplify the programming of prismatic pockets and bosses. Improvements help reduce the time taken to program 2D parts whilst also helping to minimise the need to use multiple CAM programs
