Delcam’s FeatureCAM feature-based CAM software is enabling custom bike builder LC Fabrications to experiment with new designs and to produce high-quality parts.

LC Fabrications specialises in parts for Sportsters and modern Triumphs but also has the ability to undertake machining projects and custom fabrication work.

Originally, all of the components were produced in the old-fashioned way, using manual machining, belt sanders, grinders and similar equipment.

Now, however, the company uses FeatureCAM. This allows users to come up with a concept and get an idea of what it will look like on screen.

Key benefits of product application

  • According to company owner Jeremy Cupp, FeatureCAM has significantly reduced the time it takes to make a part; he can go from a concept to a finished part in one afternoon — a process that used to take several days.
  • Cupp can program, set up and run a job in a day that used to take several days just to get the first part made.
  • He regards FeatureCAM as a good tool to allow him to maintain his individuality and to achieve new levels of success.
