Vero Edgecam Desinger 2020 is a Independent software for CAM prototyping that allows users to directly model CAD or review and modify existing CAD designs.
Direct modeling frees the user from the limitations of a traditional modeling system. In this type of modeling, when a change in design is required, instead of modifying a long set of parameters for the change, it can be achieved using the direct change of geometric shapes in the design.
Another feature of this software is the auto-modification of the model. For example, when there is a gap between the piece you added to the model and the associated surface, you will not have to rebuild this part of the time-consuming model.
Spend as Edgecam Desinger automatically generates a curved edge and accelerates the remaking process with the tools you provide.
Here are some key features of “Vero Edgecam Designer v2020.0.0.21598“:
- Direct Modelling
Direct Module frees the user from the constraints of a traditional modeling system. Rather than modifying a lengthy series of parameters to make a design change, direct modelling allows the user to push, pull and drag the geometry to obtain their desired shape. These changes can be completely freeform or driven by numeric increments and measurements taken from existing geometry. Knowledge of how the original model was constructed is no longer necessary and design changes are not constrained to the original methods of creation. Direct modeling gives the user complete freedom of construction either by creating a new component or modifying an existing design created in any of the many CAD formats that Designer supports.
- Ease of Use
Simple menu and icon commands with context sensitive online help make it quick and easy to start using EDGECAM Designer. Dynamic rotation, zoom and pan, together with programmable function keys and mouse buttons help to speed up the operation of the software. Unlimited undo and redo operations with user definedable bookmarks allow the designer to move backwards and forwards throughout the design process. Multi-layer and multi-origin control with user-definable color pallets and line styles makes it easy to review, create and work with very complex designs. Lightning fast rendering, transparency control and dynamic sectioning make it easy to visualize CAD files and large assemblies.Model Healing
Small gaps between the surfaces of imported models can be automatically healed, preventing the time consuming process of rebuilding very small surface patches. Where the surfaces are corrupt or missing, EDGECAM Designer will automatically create the edge curve geometry making it easy to rebuild new faces using the comprehensive surfacing suite. Automation makes the process of model cleanup much faster and easier. Closing a surface model to produce a solid body eliminates construction problems later in the design process and instantly brings the benefits of solid modeling to the user. The ability to seamlessly switch between solid and surface technology provides unlimited freedom, ensuring that the user can work with hard CAD data.
- Feature suppression
Many times the incoming CAD data includes geometric features that are either unnecessary for a CAM, or will not be created by the machining process itself. Post-machining processes such as laser engraving, electrode marking and other techniques are often represented in the model. While this was important for CAD design and will ultimately reside in the final component, such markings often impede the work of the CAM programmer. With EDGECAM Designer, removing these markings and even saving them for later operations is just a mouse click away.
- Model Simplification
Along with suppressing certain features of the model not used for machining, the user may wish to simplify the geometry during various machining steps. Removing portions of the model, such as intersecting features, makes the machining process faster and provides better results. The ability to modify the model without being held to the constraints of a previous construction method or feature tree is incredibly powerful.
Creating model variations for each stage of the machining process becomes simple and your machining results become both fast and of higher quality.
- Powerful Sketching
EDGECAM Designers sketch capabilities allows for the creation of two-dimensional shapes using a free-form input. While the user can rely on the traditional methods of coordinate-based input, the free-form sketching intelligently interacts with the surrounding geometry. This ability to intuitively create implied constraints with other geometry expedites the sketch creation process while maintaining the maximum flexibility for future changes.
- Geometry for Machining
EDGECAM Designer provides a host of geometry creation techniques that are critical to the machinist’s model preparation. Hole capping is a great example of the simple and easy-to-use features of EDGECAM Designer that helps to ensure that surface machining provides the best possible results. This feature can be used to capture anything from a simple drilled hole to a complex open cavity with just a few clicks of the mouse. An extensive range of curve creation routines greatly improves boundary creation and simple but powerful surface design techniques provide the machinist with more power than ever before.
- Working with 2D Data
EDGECAM Designer supports the import of DXF and DWG files allowing the user to convert existing 2D data into a 3D model by simply reusing the imported profiles from the original data. Imported data automatically creates sketch profile regions making the transformation from 2D to 3D easier than ever.
