PartMaker Inc., a division of Delcam Plc’s latest version of PartMaker software for programming CNC mills, lathes, wireEDM, turn-mill centers and Swiss-type lathes, Version 2013, features a totally revamped surface machining module, powerful CAM machining algorithms and a restyled, more productive user interface.
PartMaker’s new Advanced Surface Machining (ASM) functionality is based on the same technology and algorithms underpinning Delcam’s PowerMILL CAM system for the manufacture of complex shapes, the company says, adding that the new ASM functionality is especially suited to customers making increasingly complicated parts, particularly for those in the medical device and aerospace arenas.
Version 2013 features a sleeker, restyled user interface and a Job Explorer tree designed to make navigating Machining Function Face Windows and Part Features faster. Along with other improvements, a number of new controls have been added to the software to make working even more intuitive.
