To implement a system that would assist in programming machining features and at the same time provide a 3D visual effect of the process to the end customer..
CAMWorks’ extensive feature set and built in intelligence helped create features exactly as per the designed specifications.
We also evaluated 1 CNC which was also 3D capable, but felt that CAMWorks was a much more impressive overall package - it was also more user friendly. Using CAMWorks has made us a lot more ecient - with the software you don't have to question whether the part is going to come off right. Earlier, we would do an extra 3-4% CNC run. But, with CAMWorks you don't need extra parts other than one sample (for reference). It has certainly helped us reduce material cost overhead."
