Roland and MecSoft to Demonstrate Powerful New Design-to-Part Workflow at SolidWorks World 2011

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jan 18, 2011 -- Roland DGA Corp. and MecSoft Corp. are teaming up at SolidWorks World 2011 to demonstrate a new design-to-part workflow for applications ranging from functional and snap-fit prototypes to nonferrous metal molds and biomedical solutions.

The workflow combines VisualMILL for SolidWorks CAM software from MecSoft with Roland MDX milling machines, a powerful solution for producing parts and prototypes from a wide range of non-proprietary materials including aluminum, ABS, Acetal, Nylon, acrylic, polycarbonate, wood, plaster and polystyrene.

"VisualMILL for SolidWorks is seamlessly integrated with our MDX series machines, making it easy for designers and engineers to go from SolidWorks to finished prototype," said Pedro Gonzalez, product manager for Roland. "The combined solution delivers smooth surface finishes, high repeat accuracies and tight tolerances to exact specifications."

"Roland is a tremendous business partner that is truly committed to offering industry leading rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing solutions," said Gerald Hiller, director of international sales for MecSoft. "Their MDX milling machines are based on 20 years of proven Roland Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) technology and offer several advantages over 3D printers."

The Roland MDX line of 3D milling machines includes the MDX-540, MDX-40A and MDX-15/20, complete solutions including entry level CAM software for rapid prototyping and manufacturing applications. Adding VisualMILL for SolidWorks improves on MDX technology by facilitating more efficient machining strategies and higher throughput.

One of only six CAM products globally receiving Certified SolidWorks GOLD Partner status, VisualMILL for SolidWorks is fully integrated inside SolidWorks which allows MDX users to process their parts in a familiar design environment. With the addition of VisualMILL for SolidWorks, MDX users also enjoy:

  • The ability to process native SolidWorks files without having to go through an error prone file conversion process
  • Very efficient and logical workflow: all programming of the MDX is done inside SolidWorks instead of having to export the part to Roland SRP Player CAM software
  • Faster programming capabilities and more machining options for greater efficiently, higher accuracy and faster throughput
