What are the advantages of CAM software when it is integrated in a CAD system? CAM programmers can work in a familiar software environment. Continuous workflows help to avoid errors. At the same time, training costs are reduced as users do not have to find their way around a completely new user interface. The period of training is significantly reduced and NC programmers can work faster and more productively. In general, the work load of the CAM user is reduced as NC machining requires no complex import, export or translation of model files. As a result, there is less data to manage.
The full associativity with the CAD model is guaranteed at all times. This means that changes made to the CAD data result in the loss-free, automatic update of the CAD commands and therefore in a direct recalculation of the toolpaths. Joint access to an identical database simplifies and speeds up the processes in the CAD/CAM software. Working with the CAD/CAM system is generally more efficient.
OPEN MIND provides integrated CAM solutions for leading CAD solutions such as SOLIDWORKS or Autodesk® Inventor® so that NC programmers can work in a familiar environment. hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS and hyperMILL® for Autodesk® Inventor® both deliver outstanding performance and allow all users to achieve high-quality results with the respective CAD integration. Full integration, simple operation and fast software processes make manufacturing generally more efficient.
