SURFCAM 6 to Showcase at SolidWorks World 2012

Surfware, Inc., developer of SURFCAM® CAD/CAM systems, will be demonstrating the upcoming release of its flagship product, SURFCAM 6, at the SolidWorks World 2012 exhibition to be held in San Diego, CA at the San Diego Convention Center from February 12 - 15, 2012 in booth #224.

SURFCAM has been a Certified SolidWorks CAM partner for many years, providing SURFCAM customers with world class precision and control over their NC programming environment when using SolidWorks design models in their shops.

SURFCAM’s powerful associativity enables programmers to open native SolidWorks files directly into SURFCAM, completely eliminating the translation process. When changes are made to the SolidWorks design models, SURFCAM automatically recognizes the design revisions and offers to regenerate the affected toolpaths. With this seamless interoperability between these two systems, SURFCAM users can quickly adapt to design changes and efficiently update their toolpaths.

The up and coming SURFCAM 6 release contains many new and powerful features such as:

  • A 64-Bit Version
  • New Tools and Material Database Engine
  • Faster Verification Technology
  • Updated Interface
  • Completely redesigned Help System
  • Four new toolpath strategies
  • Updated CAD translators to latest CAD systems (plus RHINO CAD translator now included)
  • Updated Post Processors (MPost and SPost)
  • Updated Integration to FARO and MicroScribe Arms
  • Newest Version of EditNC included
  • Enhanced calculator for TRUEMill toolpath parameters
  • Refined TRUEMill toolpath algorithms
  • Plus much more.

SURFCAM 6 also supports SolidWorks 2012 parts, assemblies, sketches and configurations and includes over 200 Post Processors for major CNC machine manufacturers.
