Version 4.0 Release 3 of Tebis America’s CAD/CAM software includes new functions designed to allow users more flexibility and cost efficiency in design, manufacturing preparation and processing time. Highlights include toolbars and menu panels that can be easily docked to the edge of the application window; a software interface that allows a user to learn to operate it more quickly and easily; and a new project dialog with the most recently used files displayed immediately after the program is started.

The display of wire-frame models and isolines also has been improved, and automatically breaking up assemblies and complex files into multiple individual files makes for more efficient use of time, the company says. Another time-savings benefit is optimized reverse engineering. The software release provides improved algorithms that are said to generate perfect transitions for four-edge surfaces. The user can also quickly and easily adjust the approximation tolerance as well as control generated radius runouts and theoretical edges more efficiently.
