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.

  • Programming A Robot The Way You Program A CNC Machine Tool

    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.

  • Interpolating Curves

    The ability to import complex curves into CNCs promises to let shops finally get beyond old limitations imposed by contouring with linear interpolation. Faster and smoother cutting will be the result.
