New CAD/CAM Solution Creates Parts from Wood, Plastics and Aluminum.
Irvine, CA — Roland DGA Corporation, a pioneer in the development of innovative digital technology, and MecSoft, the developer of VisualMILL for SolidWorks® and other computer aided manufacturing (CAM) software solutions, will demonstrate a new, seamless subtractive rapid prototyping (SRP) workflow at the upcoming SolidWorks World show in Anaheim, California.
Located in Booth # 110, MecSoft will showcase its new 64-bit version of VisualMILL for SolidWorks, which enables designers to machine larger, more complex parts which were previously cumbersome or impossible to handle due to the memory limitations of 32-bit systems. Throughout the show, MecSoft will produce prototypes and parts on Roland's MDX-40A 3D milling machine which features the company's renowned SRP technology. Roland's MDX series provides seamless integration with VisualMILL for SolidWorks, and unlike additive prototyping systems, produces parts from non-proprietary materials including aluminum, ABS, Acetal, Nylon, acrylic, polycarbonate and a variety of woods, plaster and styrene. Roland's MDX-540 series will be on display in the Roland DGA exhibit, Booth # 743.
"With the new 64-bit version of VisualMILL, more complex files are handled with ease and MDX series tool paths are updated automatically for a seamless workflow from design to finished part," said Pedro Gonzalez, product manager for Roland. "This new solution fully integrates SolidWorks design and manufacturing processes and produces parts in materials that meet the requirements of finished parts and products."
"MecSoft Corporation's partnerships with SolidWorks and Roland bring together state-of-the-art design and machining software with one of the best-performing desktop machines in the industry," said Anita Anand, vice president, sales and marketing at MecSoft. "VisualMILL for SolidWorks, together with SolidWorks and the MDX series, offer a complete, powerful, easy-to-use and affordable design and manufacturing solution for the prototyping industry."
