Delcam reseller Les Tech will preview the company’s forthcoming integrated CAM system for SolidWorks at a series of events in the Quebec region to launch SolidWorks 2010. The meetings, which are being hosted by local SolidWorks reseller SolidXperts, will take place in Jonquière on 14th October, in Québec on 15th October, in Sherbrooke on 21st October and in Montréal on 22nd October.
The preview version of Delcam for SolidWorks to be demonstrated will include drilling and three-axis milling but plans are in place to extend the functionality in future releases to cover the full range of machining operations, including turning, wire EDM and five-axis machining.
This latest software program marks a new direction for Delcam. Previously, the company has supplied all of its machining software as stand-alone systems that can be linked to any CAD system. In contrast, Delcam for SolidWorks is a dedicated program that provides direct access to Delcam’s world-leading CAM algorithms from within this popular design software.
Delcam for SolidWorks will provide all the benefits associated with Delcam’s FeatureCAM feature-based machining system. It will have the same strong focus on ease-of-use; all of the knowledge-based automation that makes the software so consistent and reliable, including automatic selection of cutting tools, machining strategies, and feeds and speeds; and the same exceptional speed of toolpath calculation. Of course, it will be based on Delcam’s proven machining algorithms that are already used by more than 30,000 customers around the world. All of this technology will be fully integrated into the SolidWorks environment so that the program looks and behaves like SolidWorks.
