Missler Software has launched TopSolid 7 integrated CAD/CAM software. The CAM module of TopSolid 7 will be completed in 2010.
TopSolid 7 integrates computer-aided design and manufacturing, finite element analysis, product data management, and enterprise resource planning in a single software solution, which allows engineering and production departments to communicate and work together in a controlled and secure environment. This helps eliminate the risk of potential errors because design and machining data are compatible and are managed and monitored transparently.
TopSolid 7 uses multicore technology so the virtual design of assemblies made up of several thousand parts is now possible with acceptable response times.
TopSolid version 6 will continue to be developed and supported over the coming years. The migration and compatibility between the two generations of TopSolid is guaranteed, but TopSolid 7 does not yet offer the industry solutions or CAM capabilities of its predecessor.
TopSolid 7 highlights include:
- Partial loading of documents
- Improved and faster draft creation
- Native PDM
- Possibility to work with several collaborators on the same database
- Integrated messaging service
- Integrated simulation
- Interfaces with CAD solutions, including Parasolid, AutoCAD, ACIS, IGES, Step, Catia v4, v5, Pro/E, UG, SW, SE, and Inventor
