SpaceClaim Events 

Geometry Workshops 

Sponsored by SpaceClaim and MCAM Northwest. 

 

Optional hands-on after main presentation. You are welcome to bring your own geometry so we can explore the benefits after each main session. Come join us for any or all of the sessions below. 

 

Thursday 11/21/2013

 

Session 1 - 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM 

Fixture Design for the CAM Programmer

Reduce fixture design time in SpaceClaim's simple, constraint free environment. Because of its short learning curve and easy accessibility, it's ideally suited to a CNC machinist, CAM Programmer or Manufacturing Engineer tasked with developing work holding.
 
Session 2 - 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Fact:  3D is hard.  It's hard to learn and seems to be even harder to remember. SpaceClaim was built with the simplicity of 2D and power of 3D.  For prototyping parts and assemblies to 2D drawings, SpaceClaim is a great choice for developing new concepts.

Please register per event and not per day.

The driver update install can be downloaded from http://www.mastercam.com/Support/Downloads/Misc/Default.aspx. After the updated drivers have been installed, you will need to re-start your system. you can now run the Windows 8.1 update.  
X7 Tool Manager Custom Mill Tools

  

To import a custom mill tool in the new X7 Extensions Tool Manager, it must conform to the following rules:

* Must be a DXF file.
Tool must be aligned with the X axis, tip in the X+ direction.
Tip position along axis does not matter.
Must have two closed boundaries representing one half of the tool
These boundaries must touch or overlap each other.
They must be on different levels.
One level must be named "CUT" for the cutting portion of the tool. This is not case sensitive.
The other level must be named "NOCUT" for the shank portion of the tool
The file can contain other geometry, it is ignored for the custom tool import.
Tech Tip - 

Verisurf Grid Slices

 

Verisurf allows you to control the spacing of data collection by using the Set Filter button in the Measure Settings you can define the spacing and starting point of a grid. This is a great tool to help distribute data points over a surface or to restrict them to a specific slice for reverse engineering applications.
