Ghent, Belgium and Monaco (PRWEB) January 02, 2014
Bricsys recently announced V14 of the successful BricsCAD software platform at their International Conference in Darmstadt, and now supports sheet metal unfolding in the BricsCAD Platinum edition. Development has already commenced on one-click ‘Export to JETCAM’, providing the JETCAM Expert nesting system with all the information required to automatically tool and nest the component.
With V14 of BricsCAD, Bricsys continues to deliver on its promise to unify 2D CAD and 3D direct modeling for dwg. In addition to standard dwg CAD functionality, the platform now also provides users with 3D direct modeling, 2D and 3D constraints, design intent recognition, assembly modeling and kinematic analysis, and since V14 now also with sheet metal capabilities.
JETCAM Expert provides either full interactivity or automation of any stage of the tooling and nesting process. With support for virtually every CNC punching and profiling machine available today, the award-winning software offers high performance nesting options and tight integration into legacy data systems such as MRP.
Said Martin Bailey, General Manager of JETCAM International, “We attended the recent Bricsys International Conference and were extremely impressed with their latest release. This integration will provide joint customers with a simple, fast and automated method of passing information between systems, and with JETCAM’s automation it can take the user right through to NC code generation in a matter of seconds.”
”We look forward to partner with JETCAM to provide our customers with an integrated solution to their CAM requirements,” said Erik De Keyser, Bricsys CEO. “Working in partnership with a market leader such as JETCAM International will help our customers automate the process of CNC code generation from BricsCAD drawing files.”
