Automate the entire electrical discharge machining (EDM) process from design through production to efficiently model even the most complex and challenging electrodes.
Automate how you define the manufacturing processes for the core and cavity.
You can automatically search, recognize, group and color faces that you want to burn and rough through EDM, wire EDM (WEDM), milling and grinding.
Model the shape of the electrode head/burn area with specialized and powerful features.
Design highly complex shapes that are associative. Ensure that the design changes made to the core and cavity seamlessly propagate to the electrode, drawing and into machining.
Quickly design undersized electrode geometry using advanced tools in NX.
You can compensate for spark gap and orbital motion. Out-of-the-box orbit types include circular, square and spherical. User-defined orbits can also be easily created.
Swap design versions of the manufacturing surfaces and automatically update associated electrodes, electrode drawings and toolpaths.
Verify interferences and calculate the sparking area to optimize downstream manufacturing operations when determining the proper EDM machine settings.
