Surfcam Part Modeler

Rapid Modeling for Manufacturing

Surfcam Part Modeler is a cost effective, 3D modeling tool specifically designed for quick and simple construction and modification of solid models.

Surfcam Part Modeler will import and manipulate files from most CAD systems, including :

  • SolidWorks
  • Solid Edge
  • Unigraphics NX
  • STEP files
  • Catia V5
  • ACIS
  • Creo Parametric
  • Autodesk Inventor
  • VISI
  • IGES
  • DXF
  • Parasolid

Part Modeler comes complete with fully associative drafting capability. It’s the perfect complement to Surfcam 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 Surfcam.

With the ability to execute a series of logically grouped construction operations as a single keystroke, Surfcam Part Modeler enables rules to be applied simultaneously across multiple parts of an assembly with automatic part-to-part compatibility. Full associativity is maintained across 2D and 3D drafting; isometric, plan and orthogonal views; standard and ordinate dimensioning; and geometric tolerancing.

Part Modeler’s intuitive user interface can be quickly and easily tailored to individual requirements, with features such as dockable windows and customisable menus and toolbars ensuring a highly productive, smooth and seamless progression from design concept through to finished component model and detail drawing.

Tighter integration between engineering and manufacturing paves the way to increased productivity.
