Camarillo, Calif. — Feb. 24, 2009 — The Italian branches of DP Technology, an innovator in the field of computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM), and Autodesk, a major producer of two-and-three-dimensional design software, have joined forces for the purpose of co-marketing their respective products.
"This collaboration will allow us to show the interoperability of our CAM solution to the world of Autodesk users," said Bruno Monelli, director of sales for DP Italy, of the new partnership. “Our ESPRIT software will empower users with a long list of benefits.”
The first formal public collaboration between the two parties took place this month at Seatec 2009, in Marina di Carrara, Italy.
ESPRIT provides users with ESPRIT FX™, which is the latest in advanced CAD to CAM feature exchange technology. Going beyond transferring just the part geometry, the FX™ technology provides portions of the original Autodesk Inventor Feature Tree directly inside the ESPRIT user interface, thereby including the complete original design intent — features, tolerances, material properties, surface finishes, administrative data, etc.
Utilization of the CAD feature tree within ESPRIT speeds up the programming process while simultaneously increasing accuracy, providing programmers with truer descriptions of workpieces to be machined.
ESPRIT is a high-performance computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system for a full range of machine tool applications. ESPRIT delivers powerful full-spectrum programming for 2–5 axis milling, 2–22 axis turning, 2–5 axis wire EDM, multitasking mill-turn machining and B-axis machine tools, and high-speed 3- and 5-axis machining. ESPRIT’s high-performance capabilities include machining any part geometry (solid, surface, or wireframe), universal post processing to format G-code for virtually any machine tool, and solid simulation and verification with dry runs rendered in dynamic solids for optimal part quality and consistency. ESPRIT is 100 percent pure Windows®, and provides a comfortable and familiar user interface for maximum productivity.
