Scottsdale, AZ, Sep 14, 2016 -- Geometric Americas ( www.geometricglobal.com), a global leader in 3D CNC machining software, today announced a new release of their revolutionary technology that uses SOLIDWORKS® 3D DimXpert and Model Based Definition (MBD) 3D dimensions and annotations to automate the programming of CNC machined components.
CAMWorks was uniquely architected to reduce a 3D solid model into a set of discrete machining features, and apply a knowledge base that selects tools, feeds, speeds, and machining strategies to automate the creation of CNC toolpaths. Tolerance Based Machining dramatically enhances CAMWorks core architecture by adding the ability to read and react to non-geometric manufacturing information such as tolerances, surface finish, and other annotations in 3D models. This ability not only speeds up the CNC programming process, and improvements in quality, but also creates a much stronger design-to-manufacturing process for machined components.
Jim Foster (VP channel marketing and sales) says, “In a world where every manufacturer is competing globally, we need to have tools that provide real breakthroughs in time-to-market. Tolerance Based Machining not only completes the digital thread between design and manufacture for machined components, but also significantly reduces CNC programming time, improves quality, and allows users to capture and reuse their best practices.
CAMWorks’ revolutionary workflow that automatically extracts manufacturing features and leverages knowledge based machining to provide customers with the most advanced solution in the industry for creating CNC programs. CAMWorks capability includes 2.5 and 3 Axis Milling, 3 Plus 2 Advanced Milling, Simultaneous 5 Axis Milling, Turning, Mill-Turn, High Speed Machining and True G-Code Simulation. CAMWorks is SOLIDWORKS Gold Partner product and provides seamless integration and full associativity with SOLIDWORKS parts, assemblies and configurations.
