Geometric Ltd has announced that Geometric Technologies, Inc, (formerly TekSoft, Inc.), an industry leader in developing advanced manufacturing software, will showcase the latest releases of their products, CAMWorkst® and DFMPro at the WESTEC 2008 Exposition & Conference (booth #S3574) in the Los Angeles Convention Center from March 31 to April 03, 2008.

CAMWorks 2008 delivers a powerful set of over 50 new performance enhancements, user interface improvements, and strategies to meet the machining requirements of diverse applications. These include improved speed and toolpath reliability for multi-axis operations, improved simulation speed and quality, and numerous user interface options for display and navigation that add to the CAMWorks ease of use. New toolpath strategies and controls have been implemented for 2-5 axis milling, turning and wire EDM to improve quality and decrease machining time. Significant enhancements in 3 axis milling include:

• A new Adaptive Roughing strategy that provides the ability to cut using the full depth of the tool and safely run your machine at optimum speed, which can reduce machining time by up to 40% over conventional roughing with less wear.

• Z Level combination toolpath option for constant step strategy on shallower slope areas.

• Additional control over pencil milling.

According to Bruce Wiener, Director of Research & Development, Geometric Technologies, "CAMWorks 2008 is the result of leveraging a strong foundation in CAM technology that allows Geometric Technologies to increase its innovative edge in delivering CAM solutions and compete successfully in the expanding market for solids machining. We continually improve CAMWorks to meet the needs of the mold-making and machining industries."

CAMWorks is a SolidWorks® certified Gold CAM product that provides state-of-the-art machining capabilities seamlessly integrated into the award-winning SolidWorks 3D mechanical design software. CAMWorks can be purchased to run with SolidWorks, or as part of a cost-effective package that includes CAMWorks Solids, an integrated solid-modeler. More information on CAMWorks is available at

DFMPro is a revolutionary "Design for Manufacturability" product developed for designers and manufacturing engineers to facilitate upstream manufacturability validation and identification of areas in design that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture. DEMPro is engineered for quick and in-depth examination of product manufacturability. DFMPro is an advanced version of DFMxpress, a free tool shipped with every seat of SolidWorks 2008.
