Autodesk is ushering in its new 2017 Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) products for a multitude of advanced manufacturing applications ranging from CNC mill- and lathe-programming to complex mold and die manufacturing. These new products combine the heritage of industry leadership in CAM software from Delcam with Autodesk’s 3D design and manufacturing prowess, presenting Autodesk CAM customers with a powerful and unique user experience.
Autodesk’s 2017 CAM solutions include enhanced versions of FeatureCAM for automating CNC programming; PartMaker for precision part manufacturing with Swiss-type lathes; PowerMill for designing the most complex molds, dies, and other components; PowerShape for the design of 3D complex parts; and PowerInspect hardware-independent inspection software. New capabilities for each of the 2017 CAM products are detailed below.
This week at the IMTS 2016 conference in Chicago, Autodesk is outlining its broader vision and software portfolio to support manufacturers in this new competitive environment. In addition to the technologies mentioned above, the company will also spotlight solutions for additive manufacturing, CAM, composites and more.
The 2017 PowerMill, PowerShape, PowerInspect, and FeatureCAM are available to new and current customers in three levels: Standard, Premium, and Ultimate. PartMaker 2017 will be included as part of FeatureCAM Ultimate.
All products will be available as perpetual and maintenance licenses and through Autodesk Subscription, a purchasing option that provides access to Autodesk desktop software with lower upfront costs on a term-based license to meet a variety of business needs and budget considerations.
