SolidWorks World 2011 was also the first public showing of iMachining in North America. Our booth featured two displays showing the incredible material removal rates of iMachining. The overall viewer impressions from iMachining included much amazement and excitement.

Bernard Charles, CEO of Dassault Systemes, has visited the SolidCAM booth and saw a short demonstration of the power of iMachining.
In another “first”, The Nvidia booth featured SolidCAM in a live display of integrated end to end “Design to CAM” with Travertson Motorcycles. Christian Travert, the visionary owner of Travertson Motorcycles mentioned, “At first, I was a little nervous showing how I use SolidCAM to program my parts directly from my SolidWorks. But as I received so many positive comments from people, who did not know that this could be done, I quickly felt my presentation had a major positive impact on the attendees at the Nvidia booth.
SolidCAM was also asked (for the first time) to do a technical presentation about the past, present and future of CAM. This presentation, given by Ken Merritt, one of SolidCAM’s Senior Application Engineers, focused on the history of CAM in general and culminated in a discussion of iMachining, the next level in CAM Technology.
Shaun Mymudes, our Sales manager in North America, was interviewed by MCad CAFÉ, Mcad Cafe Interview to explain the new items that SolidCAM was featuring at the show. Our new extremely affordable, SolidCAM Xpress, iMachining and the soon to be released SolidCAM 2011 were featured prominently in the interview.

SolidCAM once again set the bar by being the first and only SolidWorks partner to distribute 4,000 Demonstration DVD’s that were attached to flyers included in the attendee “welcome bags”. SolidWorks personnel commented on this approach as being both “innovative” and “helpful” for attendees to get acquainted with the power of integrated CAD and CAM.
