Southfield, MICHIGAN, January 2010: Designers and engineers attending the SolidWorks World 2010 Conference, being held January 31 – February 3, will have multiple opportunities to see how the seamless integration between Planit’s Edgecam Solid Machinist and SolidWorks 3D mechanical design software can maximize efficiency and productivity.
Occupying the first time slot in the Certified Partner Theatre, Steve Sivitter, Americas Regional Director for Planit, will highlight the success of a mutual SolidWorks and Edgecam customer and demonstrate the latest developments in Edgecam’s automation capabilities. Attendees of this session, in addition to learning best practices for CAM strategies for 3D models, will be entered in a drawing to win an iPod touch.
“Reading Native files and transferring design intent is key to successful implementation between SolidWorks and Edgecam. This integration, when combined with Solid Machinist and Strategy Manager, automates repetitive tasks and provides consistent quality results based on your best proven machining practice,” says Sivitter.
Conference attendees can also visit Edgecam in booth # 619 to gain in depth information on how Edgecam’s Solid Machinist and Strategy Manager combine feature recognition technology and knowledge based machining to drastically reduce programming time and errors when handling 3D models from SolidWorks.
Edgecam Solid Machinist is a powerful tool that reads native SolidWorks models (and models from most leading CAD systems) and generates milling and turning machining strategies that produce NC code for machine tools. The associative link between Edgecam Solid Machinist and SolidWorks significantly reduces the burden of reworking NC programs, meaning that even late design changes to the SolidWorks model will not affect manufacturing lead times.
Edgecam Strategy Manager is an interactive, graphical tool used to define and capture the way in which parts are machined. Edgecam Strategy Manager allows the user to capture best practice manufacturing methods and apply them to subsequent jobs, dramatically reducing programming and machine cycle time. Edgecam’s suite of automation tools allows programmers and engineers to focus on capturing and improving best practices that add to bottom line profits.
