Some of these technologies are from startups that DEVELOP3D is excited to see take their first steps out of stealth mode. Others come from established companies such as Siemens, as we continue to develop new capabilities within existing systems and launch brand-new tools such as Solid Edge CAM Pro, which enable our customers drive product innovation and accelerate their digital transformation.

Tooled up with Solid Edge CAM Pro

“We’re excited to be a part of The 3D3 30 lineup, selected entirely on merit,” says Richard Runnells, Director of Product Marketing at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Solid Edge computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) solutions help manufacturers to build world-class products using a wide range of manufacturing processes, including CNC machining, nesting, cutting, bending, molding, welding, assembling, and additive manufacturing.”

Now available to buy online as a subscription, Solid Edge CAM Pro delivers a modular, flexible configuration of numerical control (NC) programming solutions that allows you to maximize the value of your machine tools.

One of the core elements of Siemens’ digital arsenal is its CAM software, so when Solid Edge adds a 2.5 Axis CAM package based on Siemens NX CAM as standard, users can rightly rejoice.

Featuring the same capabilities as the full 2.5 Axis package, it includes advanced capabilities such as adaptive milling for 2.5 axis operations; automated toolpath creation and visualizations for optimized machining processes, as well as access to more than 1,300 post-processors via Post Hub.
