MachineWorks v.7 is out now

SHEFFIELD - September 13, 2010 – MachineWorks Ltd, a market-leading provider of true solid-based simulation, verification and tool path generation solutions has released v.7 including its new libraries on thread safety and solid closing.

Thread Safety

The new MachineWorks v.7 is an extensive modification of our libraries to allow users to take full advantage of multiple core architectures in multi-core PCs and multi-core CNC controllers .

MachineWorks libraries have been made thread-safe for all likely usage scenarios. Users can also exploit the benefits of multiple core machines by internally multithreading algorithms and running multiple simulations simultaneously.

Solid Closing

MachineWorks solid closing algorithms will close gaps in models, and fix self-intersecting loops and faces. The new solid closing module means that you can produce watertight models from almost any input geometry.

“We wanted to focus on performance and offer our customers the opportunity to gain significant increases in speed on their multi-core hardware”, says David Manley, Managing Director. “MachineWorks solid healing tools are another welcome addition to our technology line-up”.

Tool path Generation

MachineWorks can compute tool paths in an environment closely coupled with our simulation and verification libraries. These tool path generators are built with the same attention to geometric detail and accuracy that characterises our verification engines. They provide fast generation of guaranteed gouge-free tool paths, within the specified tolerance. Our strategies include Area and Rest Roughing, Water Line, Rasters, Radial and Spiral cuts, Constant Step over, Pencil and Parallel Pencil.

Ease of use

We have tools to ease the implementation of MachineWorks, like the MachineWorks Machine Builder that can produce a prototype in one day and allows the user to quickly and easily develop an application to sit on a CNC controller or a stand-alone PC.

Our development team has also enhanced MachineWorks Machine Simulator to help develop Full Machine Simulation including material removal and full clash detection. Some of our customers prioritise time-to-market over customisation. They choose to use our Simulator interface rather than our raw APIs because the Machine Simulator offers a ready-to-use solution with a state of-the-art simulation engine underneath.

You can see MachineWorks live demos and how easy it is to use our Machine Simulator and Machine Builder at IMTS on booth E-3831, in the CAD/CAM hall by the lake.

IMTS 2010 runs from the 13-18 of September. www.imts.com
