PTC Reports Q3 2008 Revenue Up 25%

  • New functionality and Enhancements: Additional large radius blending support; improved feature retention during modifications; more agile local operations handling with increased performance; sheet body offset function; new APIs for improved workflows; expanded “tolerant-hot” Boolean capabilities for improved handling of imported data; 3D edge offset for CMM applications; fixed-axis sweep option to simulate 2.5-axis milling paths in CAM applications; supported on a wide variety of 32- and 64-bit platforms
  •  Expanded 3D CAD Interoperability: Generic Inventor Reader, generic SolidWorks Reader.
  • Advanced CAD Interoperability: SolidWorks 2008 files, Inventor 11 assembly files, Parasolid 20.0 files, CATIA V5 flag notes (ACIS/Generic CATIA V5 Reader Manufacturing Option), ACIS assembly format (import/export monolithic ASAT files), Additional Pro/E PMI display information, reading assemblies from sub-folders (CATIA V5, SolidWorks)
U.S. Navy Purchases KeyCreator Software
Kubotek USA announced that the U.S. Navy’s Fleet Readiness Center Southwest (FRCSW) has purchased an additional 12 licenses for Kubotek USA’s KeyCreator CAD software. This latest purchase brings the Navy’s total active licenses to 39. The Navy uses KeyCreator to design mechanical fixtures needed to perform repairs and routine maintenance of various aircraft types serviced by the FRCSW artisans and squadron personnel. “KeyCreator is cost effective, flexible and precise,” said Scott Sweeney, Vice President of Kubotek USA. “Aerospace applications, especially aircraft maintenance and repair, benefit from our technology because it allows users to work quickly, accurately and with data from other design programs. We feel our software technology helps the Navy work more efficiently.”

Siemens PLM Software Ships Version 6 of CAM Express
Siemens PLM Software announced that Version 6 of CAM Express software is shipping to customers worldwide. CAM Express is the numerical control (NC) programming software component of the Velocity Series portfolio. It covers a wide variety of programming requirements from high-speed machining to multi-function mill-turning to 5-axis machining. In feature-based automation, CAM Express 6 brings Tecnomatix software technology to feature recognition and rule development to enable feature-based machining driven by configurable rules. Incremental process steps are defined and organized in a new Machining Knowledge Editor, without writing code or editing scripts. CAM Express also maintains production run quality with special support for measurement functions. CAM Express 6 provides direct programming of Renishaw probing cycles, including the support of special solid tool representations and machine simulation of probing cycles. CAM Express 6 includes more capabilities across the critical 3-axis machining application space, including specific high-speed machining approaches, to enable:
  • Simplified tracing cuts with new cutting strategies for curve/edge and 3D profile cutting.
  • Ten percent faster roughing cuts with the optimized corner rounding techniques.
  • Smoother finish cuts with specialized point distribution in 3-axis surface milling.
  • More effective toolpaths with new editing and dividing techniques that apply shorter, stouter tools for deep cavities.
