PartMaker Version 9 software for programming CNC mills, lathes, wire EDM, turn-mill centers and Swiss-type lathes includes a revamped user interface, improved capabilities for programming directly on solid models and improved machine simulation for the increasingly complex machine architectures of multi-axis turn-mill centers and Swiss-type lathes.

The major highlight of the version is a revamped user interface that is designed to be easy to use with user-configurable toolbars. Existing icons have been recreated to make them easier to understand. Existing PartMaker users will be able to use version 9 without any learning curve from previous versions. The version also gives users the ability to carry out programming directly on a solid model. The model will be imbedded into a programming plane via the use of a split screen.

Other enhancements include machine modeling functions to support the simulation of increasingly complex machine architectured of multi-axis  Turn-Mill centers and Swiss-type lathes. Improvements to the software's tool database, including the ability to import and export data from and to external files. The capability will allow users to directly interface to their own, external tool crib data as well as cutting tool manufacturers' catalogs. This bi-directional interface will allow PartMaker users to take advantage of the software's powerful tool visualization features for their in-house tooling data.

Also, this software version generates better machine setup documentation than version 8. By providing better setup documentation, users will be able to make even further strides in setup reduction by providing  machine setup personnel with clear instructions on how to set up the machine to produce a particular part.
