Automatic feature recognition in FeatureCAM helps speed programming times

Delcam is pleased to announce that its FeatureCAM range of feature-based CAM software has been awarded "Certified CAM Product” status by the SolidWorks Partner Program.  This follows an extensive evaluation by SolidWorks Corporation, including user reviews to confirm that the combination of FeatureCAM and SolidWorks is already working successfully in a variety of industries.
Approval under the SolidWorks Certified CAM Products Program assures companies using SolidWorks for design that they can select FeatureCAM for their manufacturing with complete confidence that it offers best-in-class functionality and interoperability.

"Successful integration and interoperability between CAD and CAM are essential for our users to gain the maximum benefit from SolidWorks,” explained Chris Salmers, Partner Technical Marketing Manager at SolidWorks Corporation.  "As a Certified CAM Product, FeatureCAM can read native SolidWorks geometry, which eliminates unnecessary data translation issues and so lowers costs.”

"We also expect our Certified CAM Products to offer world-class CAM functionality,” added Mr. Salmers.  "The FeatureCAM range delivers powerful solutions and features the latest innovations in manufacturing software.”

Introduced in 1995, FeatureCAM was the world’s first Windows- and feature-based milling system.  Since then, the product range has grown significantly to include turning, wire-EDM, mill-turn packages and feature recognition for imported CAD files.  FeatureCAM became part of the Delcam group of companies in 2005.

The latest version of the software includes support for continuous five-axis machining, more efficient turning through better and easier control of stock remaining, and an improved tool database with more options to link pre-defined feeds and speeds to individual tools.  FeatureCAM 2008 also features numerous smaller enhancements and speed-ups, plus new and updated post-processors, in particular for turn-mill equipment, including the Mazak Integrex, Daewoo Puma and Nakamura-Tome machines.
