CGS North America is demonstrating the latest version of its CAD/CAM Software CAM-TOOL Version 14 at Amerimold 2018. The company displays the software’s ability to machine a mold or die with minimal to no polishing. Options have been added in Version 14 to improve on undercut tools and improve accuracy. Lollipop cutters that are used in undercut applications can now be defined and saved off in the software’s tool database. The multi-axis stock model has also been improved to make it more accurate. The release of Version 14 comes with additional improvements and fixes to known issues.
