Shapr3D integrates Siemens PLM Software’s Parasolid 3D geometric modeling component and Tech Soft 3D’s Hoops Exchange AD translation software development kit (SDK) to allow solid modeling and data translation locally within the app. By integrating these two technologies with Shapr3D’s touchscreen interface, engineering and design professionals can now use the iPad Pro. 

One of the differences between Shapr3D and other mobile CAD tools is that everything runs locally on the iPad Pro. Pushing files or rendering jobs up to cloud is not necessary, and it also runs offline without an internet connection. There is no cloud storage and data is stored and said to be secure on the iPad Pro. Shapr3D is compatible with all major CAD software and can be used for 3D printing.

    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.
