WESTEC: PartMaker Version 8 to Debut with New Features and Enhanced Functionality

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. 

Fort Washington, PA – PartMaker Inc. will unveil its latest release, Version 8 of its PartMaker® CAD/CAM software for CNC Mills, Lathes, WireEDM, Turn-Mill Centers and Swiss-type lathes at Westec 2007 in Los Angeles, CA.  PartMaker Version 8 features a wide range of improved functionality including enhancements including the introduction of the PartMaker Full Machine Simulation module which allows the user to view a photo realistic 3D model of the machine for which they are programming a part.

This 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 CNC programmers and machinists because it means they will have to spend less time in setting up new jobs and performing dry runs to assure there are no collisions on the machine.

“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.

More on PartMaker

  It thus relieves the user from reentering the same features information for subsequent parts.  It also improves productivity by placing the emphasis on tool management functions.

PartMaker pioneered the field of CAM software for Turn-Mills and Swiss-type lathes with its patented Visual Programming Approach for programming multi-axis lathes with live tooling. It assures quicker learning and easier use. It makes an extensive use of pictures to help the user describe tools, part features and machining data.  Synchronization of tools working on multiple spindles is achieved by a few mouse clicks.
