MecSoft releases VisualMILL for SolidWorks, PRO/DUO 09 december 2010
MecSoft Europe, the exclusive distributor of MecSoft Corporation products in Europe and a leader in mid-range CAM software, today announced the release of a new VisualMILL for SolidWorks configuration called PRO/DUO.
"With our PRO/DUO product, multiple operators have the freedom to choose their preferred programming environment,” stated Ulrich Oehler, CEO of MecSoft Europe. “SolidWorks users can integrate VisualMILL for SolidWorks as their main CAD/CAM system, while users who are more accustomed to a standalone shop-floor or tool-room programming environment can use VisualMILL.”
Utilizing the product’s interoperability functionality, users can freely transport part geometry and programming data between VisualMILL for SolidWorks and VisualMILL, enabling seamless data flow between Engineering and Manufacturing. This ensures design data integrity as well as reducing translation issues that can create costly production delays or worse, manufacturing errors.
The PRO/DUO configuration allows customers to have up to two networked users running VisualMILL for SolidWorks PRO and/or VisualMILL PRO standalone, from one security key. “Prior to the release of our PRO/DUO configuration, customers would typically have to purchase two separate seats of CAM for two operators,” said Oehler. “With the PRO/DUO configuration, our customers can save a lot of money. And, if they choose to run the standalone VisualMILL on one programming station, they could save the cost of purchasing an additional CAD seat as well.”
