The latest version of computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) software created by CAM industry leader DP Technology will be on display Dec. 2-5 in Frankfurt, Germany, where Esprit® will be featured at EuroMold 2009.
One more opportunity to discover a powerful tool
This 16th edition of EuroMold, slated to take place at the Frankfurt Exhibition Center, is a world fair for moldmaking and tooling, as well as design and application development. Knowledgeable and approachable representatives exhibiting Esprit at the show will be happy to help with any questions, and to discuss the new features in the software. Designed with ease of use in mind, Esprit emphasizes the use of milling and, or, turning in any combination and on any type of machine tool, which means that most improvements to the software are to the benefit of all programmers.

This year, Esprit 2010 has added many enhancements to improve the user experience for all milling, turning and wire EDM cycles. New SolidMill and SolidWire cycles have been added and all machining cycles in Esprit have been upgraded to a new interface.
The look of Esprit 2010 has changed dramatically with a new interface for all machining technology. Plus, simulation is more efficient with a new stock automation engine that calculates the stock model in the background, allowing the user to start a realistic simulation at any point in the process.
Major changes have been made to milling with the integration of Esprit Mold 3-axis milling cycles, new and improved Mold 5-Axis cycles, feature-based machining for all FreeForm cycles, the ability to define a third rotary axis for milling machines, new knitted surfaces for parametric machining, and advanced pocket feature recognition. Associativity with CAD models has also been extended to include the new pocket features in addition to FreeForm and EDM features.
Technology advances have been made to wire EDM with a new cycle for 4-Axis pocketing and new technology for EDMs equipped with a rotary axis.
