Delcam has launched the 2013 version of its Partmaker CAM software, which is designed for the programming of production machining equipment such as turn-mill centres, bar-fed mills and Swiss-type lathes.

The latest version of the software features a revamped surface milling module and a restyled user interface, among other enhancements.

A number of new controls have been added to the software and various diagrams have been recast to give the program a fresh look, according to the company.

Key additions and enhancements

  • Advanced Surface Machining (ASM) functionality — this is based on the same technology and algorithms underpinning Delcam’s Powermill software
  • Job Explorer tree — this is intended to simplify the navigation of machining function windows and part features
  • ASM milling module — this replaces Partmaker’s Surface Machining Wizard module and is designed for the surface machining of freeform shapes
