PowerCAM For SolidWorks
SolutionWare partners up with SolidWorks to create PowerCAM for Mazaks and G-code machines.
SolutionWare Corporation, with over 30 years in CAD/CAM and CNC programming solutions has launched the latest in CNC programming by merging SolidWorks with direct Mazatrol and G-code output.
Silicon Valley, CA April 1, 2006 – SolutionWare Corporation, developers of MazaCAM and GeoPath has launched PowerCAM for SoidWorks, a state-of-art seamless direct Mazatrol and/or G-code output from within the SolidWorks interface. This allows the users of SolidWorks to create their manufacturing parts and output CNC code often within a few minutes.
PowerCAM combines the power of a Mazatrol off-line programming system, a CAD/CAM system, and Engineering software into one system with the power of three. The MazaCAM Editor is a full off-line Mazatrol programming system; GeoPath is a full CAD/CAM that can output G-code, and integrate with the MazaCAM to output Mazatrol. PowerCAM links SolidWorks, MazaCAM and GeoPath into an even more powerful programming system taking advantage of the feature information present in the SolidWorks model, instead of the CNC programmer having to re-create it all in the CNC programming system.
You can now take a native SolidWorks file, assign tooling, and output Mazatrol directly, or see the tool motion, calculate runtime, generate tool sheet, output G-code for any CNC, and much, much more
In the past there was no way for only one CAD/CAM system to program all the CNCs especially with the different types of G-code and Mazatrol controls.
PowerCAM for SolidWorks is the ideal and complete CAD/CAM system for the shop, all its users and all its machines. With one programming system the training, programming and production of a manufacturing shop are better managed.
