RhinoCAM is a Computer Aided Machining (CAM) plug-in for CNC that runs completely inside of Rhinoceros 5.0. This plug-in is a general purpose machining program targeted at the general machinist. RhinoCAM marries the power of Rhino’s freeform modeling with the machining capabilities of VisualCAD/CAM to bring you a product of unrivaled capability for free form surface machining.
With the seamless user interface, selection and display integration, RhinoCAM acts and feels like you are working with Rhino when creating your cutter paths. RhinoCAM is fully associative to any geometry changes within Rhino. RhinoCAM includes 2-1/2, 3, 4 and the newly introduced 5 axis continuous milling and hole making operations. It comes with hundreds of post-processors and additionally a post-processor generator to create user definable post-processors.
Different Modules are available as follows:
RhinoCAM’s MILL module includes powerful 2.5, 3, 4 and 5 axis machining functionality to program CNC mills. Comes with hundreds of free post-processors and the ability to create new ones.
RhinoCAM’s TURN module is a complete 2 axis CNC turning center programming system, including Roughing, Finishing, Grooving and other machining methods and also free post-processors.
RhinoCAM’s NEST module, with both Rectangular & True Shape nesting, is used for optimally arranging and fitting arbitrary part geometry shapes onto sheets of stock material.
RhinoCAM’s ART module converts of artwork to geometry suitable for machining. Used for modeling artistic shapes using bitmap images, it extends the capabilities of the machining modules.
