Cambridge, UK Nov. 18, 2009 — NCG CAM Solutions Ltd today announced that NCG CAM now supports SolidWorks® 2010 3D CAD software.
SolidWorks 2010 is focused on optimising core design functions so users can more quickly and intelligently achieve their goals. It also includes hundreds of new enhancements specifically requested by customers.
The new version of SolidWorks improves designers’ and engineers’ productivity with new capabilities like rapid dimensions, enhanced mirrored components, and heads-up mouse gesturing. These capabilities let designers and engineers work smarter and faster while minimising menu navigation.
About NCG CAM Standalone 3D HSM CAM Software
NCG CAM HSM CAM software is an easy to use stand-alone CAM system that integrates with existing CAD and CAM systems, including SolidWorks. A SolidWorks SOLUTION PARTNER Product, NCG CAM allows users to open SolidWorks parts directly. NCG CAM detects when a SolidWorks file has been changed and the user can then update the toolpaths that have been generated in NCG CAM.
“Engineers don’t have time to worry about software complexity or the problem of integrating data between separate applications,” said Nick Iwaskow, SolidWorks Manager, Alliances. “Combining NCG CAM’s CAM capability with SolidWorks 2010 3D CAD enables engineers to focus on innovation, quality, and productivity instead of how to use the software.”
NCG CAM boasts many innovative features. It is suitable for all types of forms, creating an optimised, smooth cutter motion for 3D HSM machining, while helping to extend tool life, minimising wear on the machine tool and producing parts with excellent surface finish.
NCG CAM has a very user-friendly interface, with a typical learning curve of just 1 day required to machine a live job. It is perfect for the high-speed machining of moulds, dies, prototypes and precision surface machining.
