The latest version of PartMaker, Version 8, will be
unveiled at Westec 2007 in booth 3275. This
new module allows PartMaker users to view a simulation of the programmed part
in 3D being cut on an accurate model of their machine.
Washington, PA – PartMaker Inc. will unveil its latest release, Version 8 of
its PartMaker® CAD/
new simulation module will provide improved error checking and collision
detection to PartMaker users by allowing them to perform an even more robust
machining simulation than currently offered in PartMaker. The machine model being simulated incorporates
machine specific tool holders and attachments to assure that any possible
collisions that could occur on the machine will be detected off-line on the
user’s PC. The ability to detect such
problems off-line is beneficial for
“The ability to simulate machining of a programmed part using a true machine model off-line will allow PartMaker users to turn their Windows desktop into a virtual machine’,” according to Hanan Fishman, the company’s President. “Such accurate machine simulation will give the user unprecedented confidence that the program they generate off-line with PartMaker will work flawlessly on the machine.”
Other than full machine simulation, PartMaker Version 8 includes a vast number of enhancements to all PartMaker modules.
