Geometric announces ‘Machine to the Mean’ capabilities for CAMWorks 2016
CAMWorks 3D CNC Machining Software automates Machining to Mean in SOLIDWORKS 2016, eliminating costly, time-consuming model offsets and rebuilds
Available through an upcoming, second-quarter 2016 point release of CAMWorks® 2016 software, the new ‘Machine to the Mean’ capabilities eliminate long-standing issues surrounding differences between design practices required to tolerance parts based on fit, form and function vs. manufacturing’
“Every part or assembly that has tolerances designed for specific functional requirements—
“With this new capability, CAMWorks 2016 software will automatically calculate the mean dimension and required tolerance for manufacturing and then use this information to select the correct tooling, machining strategy, and generate the toolpath.” Foster stresses. “The impact of this solution is that CAMWorks users won’t have to rebuild models or add offsets anymore because they will be able to machine to the mean automatically, saving time, reducing costs, and improving quality.”
CAMWorks, a parametric, solids-based CNC programming software system, brings in a revolutionary way to help machinists around the world program smarter and machine faster. CAMWorks significantly reduces programming time and removes the drudgery from CNC programming by using patented Feature Recognition technology in conjunction with full toolpath to solid-model associativity and knowledge-based machining.
