Air Arm’s wanted to develop a new gun that would give them an edge over their competition. To do this they needed to design something really special. Surfacing has always been a huge challenge for Air Arms, and their gun components require a mixture of 2, 2.5 and 3 axis tool paths. SolidWorks working together with CAMWorks provided the key to achieve just what they needed, with vastly improved results.
It’s all about making a better-looking product and with SolidWorks working with CAMWorks the possibility of achieving this is greatly enhanced, whilst at the same time greatly reducing time to market.”
