Missler Software’s TopSolid’Cam 7.6 offers continuous five-axis functions and the ability to program turn-mill machines. The CAM software has adopted a native Windows 7 interface. The software manages files, machine tools, cutting tools and ISO files with an integrated and transparent PDM. The FreeShape function enables machining of the designed part without worrying about tolerances or data re-entry, the company says.
Other features include stock management for all milling and turning operations; strong CAD integration and use of features to enable part redesign; advanced simulation of lathes and milling machines; and the ability to create operating files that manage tracking system needs for subcontractors.
