MASTERCAM, represented in Australia by Technology Sales and Support , has signed a license agreement with product development company PTC under which it will offer interoperability solutions, built on PTC's Granite One, to end users.
Granite One is a software development environment based on the geometry, feature and data exchange capabilities at the core of Pro/ENGINEER, PTC's market leading mechanical computer-aided design software.
One of the key advantages of solutions built on Granite is the ability to operate with original data created in Pro/ENGINEER with no intermediate steps.
Timed to coincide with its Mastercam Version 9 release, CNC Software announced its new Granite-based add-on for reading native Pro/ENGINEER files and those of other Granite licences.
The available add-on utilises the Granite Interoperability Kernel to provide major enhancements to the previously offered Pro/E Translator.
Mastercam V9 users can now read native Pro/ENGINEER files seamlessly into Mastercam.
