Significant time gains with TopSolid'Cam

Missler Software is very happy to announce significant time gains for TopSolid'Cam users in the latest version of its CAM module.
 Thanks to the optimisation of certain algorithms together with the new possibilitie offered by instruction sets available in Intel processors, TopSolid'Cam can now offer significantly reduced calculation times for 3D operations. Here is a summary of just some of the resulting time gains (we have compared the most recent version of TopSolid'Cam 2008 with previous versions):

  • Machining on parallel planes: Between 1.5 to 1.8 times faster

  • Constant crete machining: Between 1.5 to 2 times faster

  • Z-Level machining: Between 2 to 2.5 times faster

  • Revolved parallel plane machining: Between 1.5 to 2.5 times faster

  • Roughing: Between 1.3 to 1.5 times faster

  • Residual material removal: Between 1.2 to 1.6 times faster

Note:
A result of 2 indicates that the calculation is done twice as fast. Thanks to the latest version of TopSolid'Cam it now only takes 1 hour (instead of 2 hours) to calculate constant crete machining.

The above time variations are due to the different processors tested and can also be accounted for by taking into account the age of the processors and the instruction sets of the processors. TopSolid'Cam operators need to work on a processor that can manage SSE2, SSE3 and SSSE3 instruction sets to benefit from the aforementioned time gains.
