Version 15 of nPower Software and IntegrityWare’s plugin products supports Autodesk 3DS Max 2019 and 3DS Max Neptune.
Version 15 of nPower Software and IntegrityWare’s plugin products supports Autodesk 3DS Max 2019 and 3DS Max Neptune. These plugin products include Power NURBS Pro; Power Translators, Power Translators Pro and Power Translators Universal; Power SubD-NURBs; Power ScanToNURBS; and Power RhinoToMax.
Power NURBS Pro provides CAD modeling tools including filleting, shelling, Booleans and surface blending. The Power Translators suite provides tools for importing and manipulating CAD models. Power SubD-NURBS converts models into NURBS geometry for export to CAD systems. Power ScanToNURBS converts scanned meshes into NURBS geometry. Power RhinToMax provides tools for importing and manipulating Rhino models.
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.
What is a post processor? A software engineer from CNC Software, makers of Mastercam programming software, explains the different types of CNC post processors, the different types of post processor users and the different levels of functionality in post processors.
The right way to program curves? A solution to yesterday's problems? The truth is probably somewhere in between.
