Version 8.1 of CGS North America’s CAM-Tool CAD/CAM software features a Protruding Divide function that enables users to separate roughing and finishing programs based on the length of the tool protruding from the holder. Other enhancements include the ability to retrieve a drill from the tool database, cutting simulation/animation, improved Z-level scan roughing, and general improvements and fixes.
Also available is Version 2.1 of CG CAM-Tool, which is designed to work within SolidWorks to enable users to apply 3D and 2D tool paths directly to a SolidWorks model, which is said to minimize handwork and polishing on electrodes, inserts, slides, lifters, and core and cavity components.
