RhinoCAM used in Munich for Prototype Development
‘ehlersdesign’ in Munich is specialized on the development of prototypes, which their customers need for very specific functions. All types of material are being used, from soft materials like foam to wood and hard wax, up to harder materials like aluminium and other NE metals.
All prototypes are designed in the 3D CAD application Rhino 5. They are then machined via a CNC software. To create CNC milling data, a separate CAM software is needed. RhinoCAM 2012 is a plug-in for Rhino, that uses the Rhino interface to work with. The software is available as a 3, 4, and 5 axis configuration and includes additional features for machining of 3D objects, depending on the version.
‘ehlersdesign’ has been working with MecSoft for some time and decided to use ‘RhinoCAM’ years ago. The plug-in can be downloaded on the internet and integrated into Rhino right away. The licensing is done by a dongle. The driver for that is also downloaded.
Martin Lange reports:
For me as a beginner in CNC milling, RhinoCAM made a very professional impression right from the start. Working with RhinoCAM 2012 is very good in all areas. As plug-in for Rhino, it runs directly within the application and there is no need to export 3D geometry into other applications.
The programming is easy to learn because all the menues are very intuitive and the milling options are displayed in small pictographs. Additionally, the help menu explains all the features in a comprehensible way. With the automated error detection, erroneous operating sequences can often be solved by simple trial and error. The simulating feature shows all operating sequences very detailed and reliable.[/one_half_last] [/one_half_last]
“For Rhino users, RhinoCAM 2012 is the perfect plug-in for milling data creation.”
