Edge Software have released CAM Express software with synchronous technology for shipping customers across Australia and New Zealand. CAM Express, the core CAM component of the Velocity Series portfolio, incorporates Siemens PLM Software’s new breakthrough history-free, feature-based design technology.
CAM Express version 6.0.1 includes additional model editing tools that leverage synchronous technology for effective set up in preparation for NC programming. By leveraging synchronous technology, this release includes the ability to edit multi-CAD data as if it were native and to make those edits faster.
Modeling with synchronous technology is an important addition to the model editing tools in CAM Express. Other model edit functions include tools for wireframe, surface extraction, sewing, projections, trim/extend and simple solids. This set of model editing tools in this release allow NC programmers to make the changes they require without waiting for model refreshes or customer edits.
As a CAD-neutral CAM system, CAM Express is able to make edits faster than the authoring CAD system. Synchronous technology enables intelligent selections with grab and manipulate features by topology.
According to Barry Bevis, MD, Edge Software, the synchronous technology, will automatically discover geometric conditions apparent in the model and preserve them during edits. Velocity Series is a family of modular, integrated solutions addressing the PLM needs of the mid-market. Consisting of a preconfigured family of digital product design, analysis and data management software offerings, Velocity Series leverages provide significant breakthroughs in ease-of-use and deployment.
