Direct Modeling System Fills Gap Between CAD and CAM
Vero Software’s Designer is a stand-alone, optional application for a CAM portfolio, enabling users to create designs or modify existing geometry from third-party CAD systems.
Vero Software’s Designer is a direct modeling system to fill the gap between CAD and CAM, focusing on the specific needs of machinist programmers. As a stand-alone, optional application for its CAM portfolio, the system enables users to create designs or modify existing geometry from third-party CAD systems.
The CAD framework is not dependent on having a series of parameters that drive it, or a feature tree. It is said to provide a quick, dynamic editing and modeling environment, where users can sketch, drag, hold, push or twist, to create and modify models. Having this single and unified solution for solids-based designs gives users the flexibility of receiving a CAD file from any source for review or modification.
While Designer operates separately from the CAM system, there are triggers within it which will launch CAM, and there is full associativity between the two. From fixture design to quick and easy part modification, Designer provides a full set of tools to fill the gap between the CAD and CAM.
