ModuleWorks, one of the leading suppliers of CAD/CAM software components for machining and simulation, and ZEISS, an internationally leading technology enterprise operating in the fields of optics and optoelectronics, are developing a solution that combines conventional CAM and the requirements of ultra-precision machining in a single CAD/CAM system.
The new 2017.2 Version of the hyperMILL® CAM suite now provides a number of improved machining strategies, such as 3D-optimised roughing and programming aids such as T-slot feature detection. In addition, the CAD software hyperCAD®-S has been given a new module for the production of electrodes for die-sinking.
3D Systems announced the immediate bundling of its innovative 3DXpert™ software with all of its direct metal printers to streamline precision metal workflows for customers across applications and industries. The company also announced that 3DXpert is planned to include a new Build Simulation module that allows users to accurately verify and optimize their parts, designs and supports to uncover costly issues before sending parts to print.
