Delcam has launched a free version of its Gold-Certified Delcam for SolidWorks integrated CAM system for SolidWorks. Delcam for SolidWorks XPRESS provides the essential 2D milling and drilling functionality available in Delcam for SolidWorks.
Delcam for SolidWorks XPRESS is intended mainly as an introductory level program for users that are new to computer-aided machining. However, it will also be useful for companies, such as design studios, that only need to program simpler CNC machines or those that wish to experiment with 2D machining before investing in a full 3D software package.
It can be downloaded free of charge from www.delcamforsolidworks.com/xpress.
Users will be able to generate NC code for feature-rich 2D parts quickly and easily with the unique ‘feature-from-feature’ technology inside Delcam for SolidWorks. Delcam for SolidWorks XPRESS is fully integrated into the SolidWorks environment, in exactly the same way as the full Delcam for SolidWorks software, so that the program looks and behaves like SolidWorks. Similarly, it offers the same full associativity with SolidWorks so that any changes in the CAD model are reflected automatically in the toolpaths.
Same level of automation
The XPRESS version provides the same high level of automation as the full program. The software automatically selects the appropriate tooling for the project, allocates the appropriate feeds and speeds to all the toolpaths, and orders the various roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations into the most efficient sequence.
Many satisfied customers
Delcam for SolidWorks combines the benefits associated with Delcam’s PowerMILL and FeatureCAM CAM systems. It is based on Delcam’s proven machining algorithms that are already used by more than 40,000 customers around the world.
