SolidCAM Announces High-Speed Machining Module
SolidCAM announced that it will present SolidCAM2007 R11 at the IMTS (Chicago/USA) and AMB (Stuttgart/Germany) tradeshows. With this release, SolidCAM is further expanding its 3D milling functionality by providing a very powerful and market-proven high-speed machining module (HSM) for molds, tools and dies, and complex 3D Parts. The HSM module offers unique machining and linking strategies for generating optimum roughing and finishing CNC high-speed toolpaths. SolidCAM's HSM Module smooths the paths of both cutting moves and retracts wherever possible to keep a more continuous machine tool motion - an essential requirement for maintaining higher feedrates and eliminating dwelling. Retracts to high Z levels are kept to a minimum; angled where possible, smoothed by arcs, retracts do not go any higher than necessary - thus minimizing aircutting and reducing machining time. All machining passes operations support enhanced point reduction and arc fitting. The result is an efficient, high quality and gouge-free tool path. Rest machining can be calculated even in areas where the final cutter is smaller than the curvature of the part. A succession of rest finishing toolpaths from a series of successively smaller cutters can be easily created, even on very large jobs. All operations feature tool holder collision checking and work with tapered tools.

3D Systems Continues To Recruit Employees
3D Systems, a provider of rapid 3-D printing, prototyping, and manufacturing solutions, announced that it recruited the 100th employees for its new headquarters in Rock Hill, South Carolina that will consolidate global corporate operations from Valencia, California and Grand Junction, Colorado. The company announced late 2005 that it would relocate to the greater Charlotte area to take advantage of the proximity to customers and suppliers, the favorable business climate, significant investment and tax benefits, opportunity to attract and retain top talent and the sustained lower cost of doing business that South Carolina provides. A new state-of-the-art facility that will include a rapid manufacturing center is being built and is expected to be fully operational by December 2006. Selected operation began already in January in a temporary facility in Rock Hill and with that came the need for new staff and resources as the company identified over 100 open positions in all departments and functions.
