Spatial’s CGM Core Modeler and 3D Interop aid CAM engineers in importing CAD models from different systems into your application, analyzing and optimizing these models with quick and direct geometry edits, as well as maintaining the CAD engineer’s original design intent.
Why will an end user choose your machine or software over that of another supplier? While it may come down to features and ease of use, often the overriding criteria is how complete of a solution you can offer. When we think about the future of manufacturing workflows, several themes come to mind: customized parts, small lot sizes, time-saving operations, and more. There are problems and challenges to solve in Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software, with new workflows being developed to solve them.
Topics Discussed in This Resource:
improving collaboration between CAM and CAD/CAE engineers
automating reconfiguration of the machining setup to accommodate design updates
capturing and utilizing CAD engineer’s design intent
allowing the CAM engineer to automate the analysis and optimization of the CAD model for specific manufacturing and tooling processes
empowering the CAM engineer to easily edit CAD designs
enabling the ability to include springback compensations based on simulation results of machining processes, back into the design
providing accurate and reliable simulations of machining processes to the CAM engineer
Software development toolkits (SDKs) are now used by almost every CAD/CAM vendor in one form or another. Popular applications included 3D geometric modeling, data translation, visualization, toolpath generation and simulation.
Why are SDKs so popular in the CAD/CAM industry? This white paper takes a look at SDK technology, the benefits and return on investment.
3D-Tool, a leading provider of stand-alone 3D model viewing and analysis software, needed to meet customer requirements to work with native CAD file formats within 3D-Tool CAD Viewer. By implementing 3D InterOp they increased their year-over-year revenues by more than 30 percent.
