FormatWorks for SolidWorks Based CAM Products

03 February 2010

FormatWorks - SolidWorks Certified Gold ProductBuilding a CAM application on an existing and widely accepted CAD product offers a lot of advantages. This is the reason why leading CAM companies such as SolidCAM and Cimtronics (CAMWorks) have chosen SolidWorks as development platform. This approach offers a lot of benefits to both developers as users.

The developers can focus on specific of CAM implementation instead of programming basic CAD functions required in their application. They simply call necessary functions using standard SolidWorks API. Users benefit from familiar user interface in one integrated environment. They can design CAD models and start CAM application to prepare 3D model for manufacturing without changing the working environment. There is no need to go to any other application to complete the work.

Realistic CFD analysis on a full assembly

FlowVision HPC 3.07 version offers new capability for thermal analysis of electronic devices. The electronic devices such as mobile phones, lap-tops or PDA’ s consist of hundreds of parts defined as assembly structure in a CAD system. Complex geometry and assemblies have always been a major obstacle for engineering simulation using traditional meshing techniques. How does FlowVision deal with this problem?

Capvidia releases new CompareVidia2010

gearwheelThe CompareVidia application for validation of 3D CAD models has been further extended with the new functions. The performance improvement gives 30% boost compared with the previous release.
The floating license configuration provides a flexible solution for multi-user environment at discounted price. 
The new wire-frame object validation opens possibility to include in the validation process auxiliary to 3D model objects as i.e. PMI describing manufacturing or dimension tolerances. 

The report summarizing the validation results can be read back into CompareVidia for further detailed analysis of all entities causing the validation process to fail. The idea is to run the validation once and have possibility to investigate the results later. This also has an impact on archiving the validation results. An old report can be easily retrieved and investigated in more details at any time.
