JETCAM International and Bricsys announced that they have formed a technical and commercial partnership. Bricsys recently announced V14 of its BricsCAD software platform, which now supports sheet metal unfolding in the BricsCAD Platinum edition. Development has already commenced on one-click "Export to JETCAM" functionality, providing the JETCAM Expert nesting system with all the information required to automatically tool and nest the component.
In addition to standard dwg CAD functionality, BricsCAD now also provides users with 3D direct modeling, 2D and 3D constraints, design intent recognition, assembly modeling and kinematic analysis, along with sheet metal capabilities.
JETCAM Expert provides either full interactivity or automation of any stage of the tooling and nesting process. With support for most CNC punching and profiling machines available today, the software offers high performance nesting options and tight integration into legacy data systems such as MRP, the company says.
"We attended the recent Bricsys International Conference and were extremely impressed with their latest release," said Martin Bailey, general manager of JETCAM International. "This integration will provide joint customers with a simple, fast and automated method of passing information between systems, and with JETCAM's automation it can take the user right through to NC code generation in a matter of seconds."
"We look forward to partner with JETCAM to provide our customers with an integrated solution to their CAM requirements," said Erik De Keyser, Bricsys CEO. "Working in partnership with a market leader such as JETCAM will help our customers automate the process of CNC code generation from BricsCAD drawing files."
