READING, England, June 2003 -- EdgeCAM Solid Machinist from Pathtrace has gained certification for Autodesk Inventor 7 software. As an Autodesk Inventor Certified Application, EdgeCAM demonstrates the highest levels of robustness, quality and interoperability with Autodesk Inventor 7 software. Autodesk Inventor 7 software is an advanced mechanical design solution that successfully combines 2D capabilities with the power of 3D.
"Autodesk is committed to maximizing the value of a customer’s design data, from concept through production," said Richard Runnells, solutions development manager for Autodesk’s Manufacturing Solutions Division. "We’re proud to work with leading CAM developers like Pathtrace to enable customers to easily and efficiently manufacture their Autodesk Inventor designs.”
Because EdgeCAM Solid Machinist provides full toolpath to model associativity, Autodesk Inventor software parts are loaded without the need for data translation. EdgeCAM uses Automatic Feature Recognition to interrogate the model to find machineable features. In addition, the user is notified of any late design changes, resulting in faster design-to-manufacture time.
Says Steve Sivitter, CEO, Pathtrace Inc. “In order to receive certification from Autodesk, EdgeCAM must conform to very demanding standards. We are pleased that yet again Pathtrace is at the forefront in CAD/CAM interoperability.”
