Misumi 3D CAD library free to machine designers
Misumi 3D CAD Model library
Misumi has announced that the Misumi 3D CAD Model library in CD-ROM format is available free of charge to machine builders, automation-system designers and product-design engineers.
The compact discs contain native CAD drawings of thousands of mechanical components offered in Misumi's 2009 catalogue.
The two-CD set provides users with a fast and convenient way to download native CAD drawings of Misumi components to their PC and import them into various CAD applications.
Misumi's online 3D CAD Configurator is suitable for design engineers that regularly source Misumi's configurable and custom-designed components for their projects.
With this tool, engineers can configure a part to precise tolerances and specifications - including critical dimensions, material and surface treatments - and download the native CAD file of the component into the assembly model.
Once finalised, they can enter the order using Misumi's Web Ordering system and input a part number, which will then become a purchased item and stored by that part number for future orders.
Many major CAD/CAE software components are available in Isight. This article presents two examples using the newly created Cedrat software components.
At the ILA Berlin Air Show, which is scheduled for 20–22 May 2014, Delcam will promote its range of software and services for the aerospace manufacturing and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) industries.
Following a positive response to its free hardware offer at the Mach 2014 exhibition, Delcam has extended its offer to include a free PC with all orders for more than £10,000 of the company’s software until the end of April.
With EPLAN Pro Panel, users can design and construct control cabinets, switchgear systems and flexible flow dividing systems for energy supply in 3D.
The 2014 R2 release of Delcam’s Powershape Pro CAD software includes a range of functionality for the design of products and tooling. The 2014 version introduces powerful tools to make re-engineering complex parts from scanned data faster and easier, plus an option to merge disjointed faces within a solid and so make direct modelling operations more robust.
