New partial common line nesting
For customers with the Advanced NC module, SigmaTUBE now supports partial common-line geometries. This includes both 4-axis and 5-axis toolpaths.
New supported shapes
Three new shapes, triangular, D, and C, are now supported for automatic toolpath generation.
IFC file import
You can now import .ifc files from third-party structural modeling programs.
New help center
The new Help Center is your hub for all information. Here, you can view tutorials, help pages, videos, and more.
Legacy content has been updated and rewritten to follow the workflow, making it easier to find what you're looking for.
Note: The new Help Center opens in your default Internet browser, but does not require an Internet connection.
New tangency tolerance configuration option
You can use the tangency tolerance option to auto generate toolpath on parts with variable flange thicknesses. Set the option as the maximum deviation from 90 degrees between the inner radius of the flange or web and the inner flange faces.
New constant chuck tessellation configuration option
A constant chuck tessellation can now be specified for straight profile cuts on round tubing. This allows you to preform a 360 degree rotation using set angle rotations instead of relying on the full tessellated toolpath and decreases the number of lines output in the NC for these cuts.
Sharp corner tessellation customization
You can specify how sharp corner interpolation is handled for Rectangle, Angle, and Channel shapes. Use this option to set the number of nodes used to interpolate a smooth rotation when entering and exiting a corner.
