Worldwide Independent Sales Partner of the Year

 

Andy and Mark attended Delcam’s Annual Sales meeting last month.  In addition to learning about new developments planned for the software, it was also a chance to discuss requests that we’ve heard from our customers.  “It was a great opportunity for us to talk to the guys who are in charge of software development,” said Andy.  “We can explain our customers’ real world challenges face to face.  It’s so much better than communicating via e-mail or phone.”

 

At the meeting, CAD CAM Systems was named Worldwide Independent Sales Partner of the Year.  “CAD CAM Systems has consistently been at the top of the rankings for North America, however this year they have been recognized as being number one in the world,” said Mark Cadogan, VP of Sales for Delcam North America.  “This award is a testament to the extreme customer focus of Andy and the entire CAD CAM Systems team.”

State of the Art Technology

 

Delcam recently announced two newly patented technologies, Vortex and MachineDNA:

 

  • Vortex is a high-speed roughing strategy designed to gain maximum benefit from solid carbide tooling.  This strategy will be incorporated in the next major releases of both PowerMILL and FeatureCAM.

 

  • MachineDNA is a unique and innovative machine tool optimization program to help maximize cutting speeds on any of your machine tools.

 

Watch for more information in next month’s Newsletter.

News from the Shop

 

“It’s just a typical day in the shop,” says Azimuth CNC Shop Manager, Jim Epperson.  One day we’re holding a .0002 bore, the next we’re cutting a life-sized hand in forged 304 stainless!  We enjoy the versatility and challenges that each job presents.

Software Tips & Tricks – Exporting from PowerSHAPE

 

Exporting files from PowerSHAPE has changed with the release of version 2012.  Several new options are now available.  When you export a file, the first page will look similar to before, except you can now access the Exchange resource files to help control the export.  Most users will just select a target system in the list, and that will change the options and settings for the export to maximize your success.  When exporting a DGK file, you can use either unknown or the Delcam target system.  When exporting an X_T file, you can use either Parasolid based modelers or Solidworks.

 

After you have selected the filename and location, you are given options of what you would like to export:

  • Selected – Only the items you have selected will be exported.  This option will only be available if you selected objects before you started exporting.  Selected objects do not include workplanes.
  • Visible – All objects on the screen will be exported.  This is going to be the most common option.
  • All – All objects in the session of PowerSHAPE will be exported.

 

If you have a workplane active in PowerSHAPE when you export, more options are available.  On the next page, you will have another choice:

  • Active Workplane – Use this option to make the active workplane the Zero location in the exported file.  This is the option to export the model as if you moved the model to the World workspace.
  • World – Use this option to export the model relative to the World workspace.  This makes the World workspace the Zero location.  All objects, including the workplane, will be relative to this location.

 

 

  

 

Is Your Software Up to Date?

 

Did you know that you can find out if you are running the most current version of your Delcam software, right from the software? Just click on the Help button and you will see a Check for Updates option (Check for Patches in FeatureCAM). As long as you are connected to the Internet, this will let you know if there is a more current version than the one you are running.  It will even enable you to download it immediately from the web!
