Surfcam Version 10 - October 2005

Surfcam machine tool simulation
Full 3D graphical representation of the machine tool and fixtures for lathes and mill/turn centers. Visualization of interaction between the machine tool elements helps to avoid expensive collisions and optimizes the cutting process.

New Parallel Lace operation
Quickly creates an optimized Parallel Lace cycle, helps speed up programming and increases usability.

Profiling cycle enhancements
New options to approach below clearance to avoid unnecessary retract moves and to profile prismatic geometry with more accuracy and less NC code.

Improved Face Milling cycle
includes option to specify the cutting side (and hence direction) of the first cut.

Surfcam Part Modeler 10 enhancements
New user interface with dockable browser and customizable menus/toolbars improves workflow and makes Surfcam Part Modeler more intuitive and easy to use. Improved IGES import with new options to import BREPs and clean and heal surfaces.

Enhanced usability
as file properties are stored with the Surfcam part file. These properties can be displayed or searched for inside Windows ExplorerT, making it easier to organize, find and recognize valuable Surfcam data.

Autodesk Vault integration
Designs and Surfcam part files are stored in a secure centralized location, allowing engineers to easily find and version CAD and CAM data with associativity maintained between the data sets.
