Griffo Brothers’ CamLink GeoSolid software links SolidWorks part model data to Mazatrol and reduces programming time required to input part geometry. It also reduces programming errors by extracting data directly from SolidWorks models. It automatically enters geometry into Mazatrol, thereby eliminating the need to search for part geometry on prints.
