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.
The 2014 version of Delcam Crispin’s Shoemaker software for designing footwear offers improved visualisation of designs with the new Keyshot rendering engine among other new features.
Delcam will demonstrate the latest developments in its range of CADCAM software at the Southern Manufacturing exhibition to be held in Farnborough, UK, on 12–13 February. Highlights will include the new Vortex area clearance strategy in both the Powermill and FeatureCAM CAM systems, extra modelling for manufacturing tools in the Powershape design software and improvements to the Delcam Electrode package for the integrated design, machining and inspection of electrodes.
Delcam has launched an upgrade to its DentCAD software, which includes improvements to the shaping of restorations such as crowns and bridges, enhancements to the design of dental bars and more flexible tools for the editing of abutments.
At the recent EMO trade fair, Open Mind Technologies showcased its Hypermill 2013 CAM system. On the company’s stand was a custom Harley Davidson motorcycle from Thunderbike, many of whose components were programmed with Hypermill.
Delcam will demonstrate the latest enhancements to its Delcam Electrode integrated system for the design, machining and inspection of electrodes at the DMP Mould and Metalworking Exhibition to be held in Dongguan, China, from 13–16 November 2013.
