Officials at Delcam say they are looking to recruit more customers at SolidWorks World when it demonstrates the 2013 version of its integrated CAM system for SolidWorks in January.
The 2013 release of Delcam for SolidWorks includes a new entry-level 3D milling option, plus many of the enhancements made to the 2013 version of the FeatureCAM feature-based programming system on which it is based. As a Gold Partner CAM product, it is fully compatible with the latest release of SolidWorks.
The new entry-level 3D option includes all the 2D and 2.5D strategies available in Delcam for SolidWorks, plus the 3D single-surface strategies for Z-level roughing, with either offset or raster, and finishing with raster, isoline or spiral. It is intended mainly as an introductory level program for companies new to 3D machining but will also be useful for users that only have an occasional need for 3D capabilities or that only machine softer materials.
