The latest release of Alphacam continues to intuitively automate key CAD/CAM operations, improving manufacturing productivity and efficiency, according to its developer Vero Software.
The software’s “Automation Manager includes enhancements to simplify workflow, including multi-drill control, new styles functionality and further support for additional CAD file formats,” the company said in a statement.
“The introduction of Automation Manager Plusacross all levels of Alphacam allows advanced automation to support the processing of constrained drawings and parametric sketches, and part grain direction through sheet grain direction and alignment vector options. It also includes the Cabinet Door Manufacture module.
“Alphacam 2017 R2 also sees the first release of its integration with robot-simulation software, meaning that output toolpaths generated within Alphacam can be passed directly to RoboDK’s Offline Programming to simulate robot kinematics, along with a range of applications and activities such as robot milling. RoboDK then outputs the OLP to the robot controller.”
