Flow International’s FlowXpert 2015 CAD/CAM software introduces updates to the platform’s 3D path generation and cutting capabilities designed to enable waterjet users to work more effectively in 3D. The platform includes an integrated 3D modeling tool powered by SpaceClaim with Flow Sequencer.

The software also features a redesigned interface for intuitive 3D and 2D part modeling. Users can now design a part and generate a path for it in the same program. Modifying the geometry of a part is possible without losing the path, and in most cases the Sequencer integration will automatically update the path to accommodate the changes. In addition, the software can detect model and path errors and suggest fixes.
