PartMaker 2016 includes more than 50 additional features and enhancements. The milling functionality in this version is specifically targeted at the needs of production machining applications, allowing users not only to program faster, but also machine parts faster. The milling toolpath technology allows users to create highly efficient and sophisticated toolpath strategies without even requiring a solid model.

PartMaker 2016 also offers the ability to import multiple solid models into a single PartMaker CAM project file. This new functionality lets users quickly extract multiple parts from an imported solid assembly. This allows for more flexible programming of complex parts as well as improved ability to manipulate milling workholding in PartMaker’s CAM environment.

PartMaker 2016 also includes dedicated functionality for broaching. The software automates the programming of both index and rotary (also known as wobble) broaching operations in an intuitive and visual manner. The software allows broaching operations to be simulated using 3D simulation.
