Many manufacturers are now using CAD software as a standard practice in the development and manufacturing of their products. In most cases however, CAD (Computer Aided Drawing) software has little or no ability to interface with machinery. For this purpose another type of software package is required which is commonly known as a CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) package. This type of package allows the user to import parts designed in CAD and add in machining parameters for machining such as tooling specifications. Another role for CAM software which becomes extremely valuable in large format profile cutting is the ability to optimize or nest the many parts into the material as efficiently as possible, without a lot of effort from the user.
To provide these capabilities, ART has produced ToolShop, a powerful yet easy to use CAM package that is tailored to the needs of businesses requiring fast, efficient and cost effective cutting of multiple parts from sheet materials.
ART ToolShop is a Windows based software package that allows the user to import multiple parts as two dimensional CAD drawings and is able to perform the following functions:
