How are CNC Machining parts calculated automated?

Oroox automated calculations for CNC machining parts is using a detection software module with built-in functionality for machinign design and manufacturing. Here are the steps involved in the automated calculation process for CNC parts. A brief explanation of how Oroox is doing this:

1. Design Input

The initial step is to provide the necessary design input, which typically includes defining the part geometry, material specifications and any specific manufacturing constraints or requirements.

2. Process Selection

The software uses an algorithm to recognize whether a part is initially classified as a turned, milled or turn-mill part.

3. Splitting

The splitting algorithms automatically split horizontal and vertical into negative volumes of the machining part based on the given geometry and detected production process (Turning, Milling or Turnmilling).  

4. Classification

All negative volumes are classified like Holes, Countersinks, Counterbores, Chamfers, Pockets, Internal Fillets, Florr Fillets, Top edge fillets, Center holes,Grooves and many more.  

5. Initial Orientation

For each negative volume the possible axis are provided to merge into an inital orientation based on an custim algorithm. All necessary orientations are als provided additional.

6. Clamping

Based on the initial Orientation the clampings are calculated. The clamping difficulty is recognized and considered in the calculation. 

7. Machine and Tools Selection

Further the former detected parameters  are used to choose the optimal machine and tools.

8. Processing Time

Depending on the classification, special situations and dimensions of each negative body, the correct approach and tools for reducing this volume are calculated. The processing time is then calculated using the tool-based feed times.

9. Programming and other Times

Required times other than pure machining are also calculated on the basis of various factors. In total, this results in a very realistic calculation of the production costs of a turned, milled or turned/milled part.

10. Rule-based calculation

All algorithms are based on rules where the calculations and decisions are made based on the criteria set by the customer. Oroox applies customer-specific rules or guidelines to determine various calculation parameters and calculate the price.

11. Documentation and Output

Once the calculations and optimizations are complete, the software generates detailed drawings, manufacturing instructions, and other necessary documentation for the production of machining parts. These outputs includes times, dimensions, tolerances, material specifications, patterns, machines, tools and other relevant information.
