CAM with feature recognition

Edgecam 2010 CAM software has enhanced feature-recognition capabilities that help users efficiently generate toolpaths. The software captures feature properties such as depth, radius/chamfer, and min/max XY radius, letting users easily select appropriate tooling and cycle parameters. A cutter-compensation feature lets users make adjustments to allow for tool wear. In addition, the release includes a Code Wizard for the Siemens 840D ShopMill CNC cutter. This cuts the time it takes to compile the machine. The software supports Windows 7. Planit Software Ltd., Limpley Mill, Limpley Stoke, Bath, England BA2 7FJ, www.planit.com
