MMT ZONE: Software

Redefining CAM Technology for Moldmakers
Tool paths that dynamically adjust tool motion allow faster, safer machining without the need for high-speed equipment. more (+)


Enhancements Speed Software’s Modelling Capability
MoldMaking Technology

Autodesk will showcase enhancements to its PowerShape modelling and reverse engineering software that are designed to help users complete complex designs more quickly and more easily.

SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase – Software, Part 2
MoldMaking Technology

With IMTS just around the corner, it’s one of the best venues for exploring the latest in CAD, CAM and ERP software that invariably is required to make your manufacturing processes run faster and more efficiently.

Project-Based Learning – The Rest of the Story
MoldMaking Technology

In this month’s issue of MMT, I wrote about an instructor’s strategy for teaching his mechanical engineering students about moldmaking via project-based learning. I couldn’t include absolutely everything this instructor teaches his students, so I thought I’d blog about it.

Tracking Tools in the Cloud
MoldMaking Technology

Whether for a local mold shop or a globally renowned supplier, a centralized system for reviewing and analyzing data is key.

Using CAD/CAM for Product Development
MoldMaking Technology

To show the value of CAD/CAM software in research and development projects, I wanted to share this story that was sent to me about an Italian plastic injection mold builder that combines craftsmanship with current technologies to offer fully integrated project management.

Design and engineering is essential to building a better and more cost-effective mold with shorter leadtimes. A variety of software is available to help overcome the daily challenges faced with data, quoting, designing and programming—including computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and data management software. CAM is used to generate machining programs corresponding to part designs; CAD is used for detailed engineering of 3-D models and/or 2-D drawings.
