CAMWorks 2012

Geometric Limited (Scottsdale, AX), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Global Engineering Services and Offshore Product Development (OPD) solutions and technologies, announced the release of its solids-based CNC programming solution, CAMWorks 2012, with support for SolidWorks 2012, as well as improvements to enable faster and easier programming, and to produce more efficient tool paths  for  improved machining productivity.

Some of the improvements in functionality and ease-of-use in CAMWorks 2012 include: feature recognition performance and recognition improvements; version 4.0 of VoluMill with the new Non-Concentric Milling technology that reduces cutting-tool loads, and evacuates chips more effectively, thereby increasing the tool life; reduction in the time taken to save the files containing a large number of tool path moves; ability to add new tools into the TechDB from within CAMWorks; shaded display of Contain and Avoid areas; and turn roughing operations now support user defined inserts.
