Geometric introduced CAMWorks for Solid Edge software, an embedded CAM solution for the Solid Edge 3D design system from Siemens PLM Software.
With Geometric's Feature Recognition technology running in real-time to capture machined features and automatically generate or update the toolpath, manufacturing-driven design changes can be made to any CAD model using synchronous technology. This streamlines what has traditionally been a time-consuming process, the company says. The solution also captures the machining strategy in a customizable database, TechDB, allowing efficient machining solutions to be reapplied to future designs with similar features.
"CAMWorks for Solid Edge is a powerful new addition to the growing Solid Edge ecosystem," said Karsten Newbury, senior vice president and general manager, Mainstream Engineering Software, Siemens PLM Software. "Since CAMWorks is embedded within Solid Edge and takes full advantage of synchronous technology, users will be able to make rapid 'on-the-fly' edits to any CAD file in the machining environment, with full model-to-tool-path associativity. This provides our customers with a tool that is easy-to-use, and enables them to deliver high quality products to market faster and more efficiently."
