Surfware Announces Release of SURFCAM Velocity Textbook

Westlake Village, CA - March 23, 2007 - Surfware Inc., developer of SURFCAM CAD/CAM Systems, announced today that the Maximizing SURFCAM textbook for the Velocity® Series, including SURFCAM Velocity version 3.0, will be officially unveiled at Westec 2007.

The Maximizing SURFCAM textbook is designed both for students and industrial practitioners who are new to SURFCAM, and for experienced SURFCAM users seeking to enhance their skills. The text includes background information on CNC programming and machining fundamentals, and covers all essential SURFCAM concepts and techniques required to successfully create part geometry, generate and verify toolpaths, and post process NC code. Tutorial projects are provided with step-by-step instructions throughout to make learning SURFCAM Velocity version 3.0 simple and straightforward.

"SURFCAM Velocity is one of the most powerful CAD/CAM software programs you can use to design parts, simple or complex, and generate the toolpaths to machine them. SURFCAM software has gained its popularity in the industry over the last two decades due to its extensive capabilities and ease of use. Our SURFCAM Velocity text is the best guide you can use to effectively utilize SURFCAM Velocity version 3.0 and maximize the power of SURFCAM to your advantage." said Dr. Dave Zamora, co-author of Maximizing SURFCAM Velocity.

The book is the product of two experienced CAD/CAM/CNC professors who have more than 30 years of CAD/CAM and machining teaching experience. Dr. Su-Chen Jonathon Lin is a distinguished CAD/CAM author of 20 CAD/CAM/CNC textbooks. Dr. Dave Zamora has extensive industrial and teaching experience in CAD/CAM/CNC.
