SpaceClaim Engineer is a 3D direct modeler designed to help engineers create and optimize parts for manufacturing. Users can open data from any CAD system and edit designs as necessary to prepare them for manufacturing, creating in-process models and extracting surfaces for contour machining and parting geometry for mold making. The software can remove or adjust rounds and chamfers, hole sizes, face offsets, draft angles and other geometry without any history of how the model was built. Basic designs can be quickly converted into appropriate shapes for molding, casting, or forging and creating tooling and fixtures around imported CAD files.

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
