Vero Edgecam What's new in Edgecam 2014 R2?

Edgecam 2014 R2 has new and enhanced functionality demonstrating why it continues to lead the way in improving productivity and flexibility for manufacturers.

edgecam3The exciting new functionality in Edgecam 2014 R2 begins to show how Edgecam Workflow will be the default method for using Edgecam. Automatic conversion of 2D design data to a 3D model, and other significant enhancements to Edgecam Worfklow, from user interface to improved automatic machining processes, are some of the important aspects in the latest release of Edgecam software enhancing Edgecam Workflow to a new level of capability.

Edgecam 2014 R2 has just been launched, and several items of new and enhanced functionality demonstrate why it continues to lead the way in improving productivity and flexibility for manufacturers, increasing their profitability.

edgecam4General Manager Raf Lobato says: “There are a number of exciting new aspects in Edgecam 2014 R2, including 2D to 3D for Part Modeler, the new Edgecam Workflow Solids modeler, comprehenisve machining strategies in Edgecam Workflow, and dynamic co-ordinate system creation. In addition, job reports are now available on portable devices. They all come for free for Edgecam users who are on a Software Maintenance Plan.”

Amongst the new and enhanced functionality available in Edgecam 2014 R2:

2D to 3D for Part Modeler

edgecam5This ensures old 2D legacy design data can be used in Edgecam Workflow without the need for total part re-modelling. A 2D drawing can now be converted automatically into a 3D model quickly and accurately by simply selecting the views and tracing the part outline.

Edgecam Workflow Solids (EWS)

Offers a fast and simplistic approach to creating simple CAM-ready 3D solid models, delivering standard modelling functions such as extrude, revolve, and blend, supported by parametric sketching. A feature wizard allows for the rapid creation of specific hole types. An interactive story board means users can remodel and edit the original design by quickly selecting the process to be edited, and re-applying the changes.

Dynamic co-ordinate system creation

edgcam5The new software includes an interactive way of creating construction planes (CPLs), by simply dragging the CPL marker from the bottom left of the screen onto a face, vertices or edge, and the CPL marker automatically snaps and orientates as required. Dragging the marker over the model instantly offers options of alignment and location, making it easy to find the preferred origin.

Direct import of tooling information from Mazak machines

An interface loads the .DAD file from Mazatrol controls and stores the .DAD tooling data instantly in Edgecam’s Toolstore. Ensuring that the tool selection in Edgecam reflects the tools available on the specific machine, means only tools on the machine can be selected, eliminating machine setup downtime.
