The fully expandable VX 2009 CAD/CAM product from VX Corporation features Show-n-Tell, a built-in 3D learning system. These integrated 3D books allow users to learn CAD/CAM at their own paces and to grow the software as their needs change—all with instant access to learning tools.

Show-n-Tell includes ten additional 3D tutorial books for healing, mold & die design and two- to three-axis machining. In addition to reducing training costs, the tutorials make it easier to adapt to VX applications, the company says. Online chat and Web meeting help is available in conjunction with the learning system. Enhanced authoring tools make it easier for users to create design review and assembly instruction documents directly in VX.

The release of VX Innovator and the 3D Machinist products round out the product line to make VX a fully expandable product, the company says. Users can start in at any point and add functionality to meet their growth needs. VX Innovator is suited for product and mechanism design, detailing, design review and quoting.

VX 2009 also includes interface enhancements, improved reliability and better predictability, the company says. The software can constrain lines and arc/circles tangent to splines, and it features options for 2D linkages with the D-Cubed 2D constraint manager in VX sketcher. Patterning has been upgraded with a dynamic preview option, which allows changes to be made more quickly and on-the-fly.

    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.
