Richardson, TX – May 16, 2008 – Alibre, Inc. ( www.alibre.com) announced today that the Alibre CAM™ product family is now available for download. Unveiled last month, Alibre CAM is the first fully integrated 3D parametric Personal CAD/CAM™ solution that is accessible and affordable for manufacturers and machine shops of any size, even individuals.
Greg Milliken, CEO of Alibre says, “Alibre is changing the status quo by providing a single, integrated parametric CAD/CAM solution for mainstream design and manufacturing at a fraction of the price of anything else on the market.”
Alibre CAM is integrated into Alibre Design, the 3D parametric CAD product family from Alibre, so there is only one interface to learn and changes to the design automatically update tool paths. Alibre CAM products provide 2½ to 5-axis CNC milling, including profiling, pocketing, facing, v-carving, engraving and hole and thread milling, as well as a variety of roughing, re-roughing and finishing operations such as horizontal, parallel, and radial. Hole making operations are also supported, including drilling, tapping, boring and reverse boring, along with animated toolpath simulation. All Alibre CAM products come with numerous post-processors as well as a custom post-processor generator. Alibre CAM runs inside of the Alibre Design user interface and can be purchased as a bundle with Alibre Design, or as an add-on to a previously purchased version of Alibre Design.
A detailed listing of the features in the Alibre CAM product family is available on the Alibre web site at www.alibre.com/products/mechanical/alibre_design_cam.asp.
