Edgecam Part Modeler is a 3D modeling tool specifically designed for quick and simple construction and/or modification of solid models. Cost effective and easy to use, Part Modeler comes complete with fully associative drafting capability. It’s the perfect complement to Edgecam Solid Machinist – providing advanced modelling tools to create parts or workholding systems such as chuck jaws or fixtures. The major features of a machine tool can also be modeled, for accurate cutting simulation and collision detection within Edgecam.
Edgecam Part Modeler will import and manipulate files from most CAD systems, including SolidWorks®, Solid Edge®, Unigraphics NX® and STEP files. Support for IGES, DXF and Parasolid is also included. In addition, Part Modeler offers functionality to ‘clean and heal’ and ‘sew surfaces’ to quickly restore imported files that need repairing.
Part Modeler’s intuitive user interface can be quickly and easily tailored to individual requirements, with features such as dockable windows and customizable menus and toolbars ensuring a highly productive, smooth and seamless progression from design concept through to finished component model and detail drawing.
With the ability to execute a series of logically grouped construction operations as a single keystroke, Edgecam Part Modeler enables rules to be applied simultaneously across multiple parts of an assembly with automatic part-to-part compatibility. Full association is maintained across 2D and 3D drafting; isometric, plan and orthogonal views; standard and ordinate dimensioning; and geometric tolerancing. Tighter integration between engineering and manufacturing paves the way to increased productivity.
