FeatureCAM brochure - .PDF file.

Delcam has created a section for technical tips on the website for its FeatureCAM feature-based programming software. More than 80 tips are listed in the new section.

The tips are intended to help users with all aspects of programming with FeatureCAM, including milling, drilling, turning, creating geometry, simulation and generating NC code. Each tip is saved as a pdf file that can be read online or downloaded for future use.

The tips complement the videos that are produced for the FeatureCAM Learning Zone; they demonstrate extra functionality that has been added to each new release of the program.

Software in detail

  • FeatureCAM was the world’s first feature-based programming software when it was launched in 1995. Constant development since then has ensured that the system has retained its programming speed and ease of use, while an increased range of strategies has been added to provide more efficient toolpaths that give greater productivity on a wider range of machinery. 
  • The FeatureCAM software now offers a comprehensive range of programs for milling, turning, wire EDM and mill-turn, all with the same easy-to-use interface style to minimise training times.
  • FeatureCAM incorporates Delcam’s established machining algorithms, including the Vortex strategy for high-efficiency area clearance. These algorithms are continuously developed by Delcam’s development team and are used by more than 50,000 organisations worldwide.

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times. The company is the world's largest specialist supplier of computer-aided machining software, with its PowerMILL, FeatureCAM, Partmaker and ArtCAM programs making up the most comprehensive range of CAM systems from any developer.

This broad selection allows Delcam to offer a CAM system capable of machining virtually any product, in any material on any type of equipment. Delcam also develops product design, tooling design and quality control programs. The unique Tribrid Modelling approach to design incorporates solid modelling, surface modelling and triangle modelling in a single program, enabling complete design and reverse engineering projects to be undertaken without transferring data between software.

Delcam's Powerinspect offers fast, reliable comparison of parts, prototypes and tooling against CAD data on all types of inspection equipment and even on machine tools. This versatility has made it the world's leading hardware-independent inspection software. Related programs are available for checking machine tool set-up and part location. Delcam software is used in over 80 countries worldwide by around 40,000 organisations, from large multi-nationals to small sub-contractors, in industries including aerospace, automotive, dental, engineering, footwear, medical and toolmaking.
