3D Tool Pathing Solution
A company known for their advanced abrasive waterjet solutions teamed up with a provider of 3D development components for manufacturing applications to create a 3D tool pathing solution. The new software tool generates 3D tool paths from solid 3D models as well as quickly performs 3D to 2D file conversions. Product incorporates a 3D InterOp to import CAD files from a variety of 3D sources, including CATIA, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Autodesk, Inventor, Siemens, NX, Pro/E and Creo. The software then applies custom solutions such as the advanced Autopath function or slice plane to convert the geometry into full 3D paths suitable for waterjet cutting, ensuring the most precise part in the least amount of time and with minimal operator involvement.
