TDM Tool Contour Generator

A new dimension: Extend your rotationally symmetric tools from 2D to 3D

The TDM Tool Contour Generator creates rotatable 2D contours from 2D DXF tool graphics which can then be revolved by the TDM 3D-Revolve Generator. For the user, this results in a simulation-ready 3D tool graphic in STEP format, which can be loaded directly into a CAM/simulation system. As an additional field of application, the TDM Tool Contour Generator also supports CAM systems that revolve 3D graphics from 2D DXF contours directly in the CAM system. Use your tool data in 3Dthe TDM Tool Contour Generator makes it possible.

Functions

  • Preparing the 2D DXF tool graphics for revolving in the TDM 3D-Revolve Generator
  • Define the cutting geometry on the tool
  • Generate and save a contour as a 2D DXF graphic
  • Closing the generated contour 
  • The TDM Tool Contour Generator also supports CAM systems that revolve 3D graphics from 2D DXF contours directly in the CAM system.
  • The TDM Tool Contour Generator lets the user create contours that meet CAM system requirements, such as closed or open contours
  • Contours created by the TDM Tool Contour Generator can be loaded via TDM-CAM integration into the CAM system, where they can be revolved into 3D graphics using CAM functions.
