CAMARILLO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 10, 2012 — Surfware, Inc., developer of SURFCAM® CAD/CAM systems is pleased to announce support for SolidWorks 2013 in SURFCAM 6.
Surfware’s commitment as a certified SolidWorks CAM partner ensures customers that SURFCAM supports the latest versions of SolidWorks as they are released. SURFCAM 6 users can now work associatively with SolidWorks 2013 data by simply downloading the most recent updates for SURFCAM 6 at www.surfcam.com/support_downloads.aspx.
SURFCAM has been a certified CAM product for over 8 years providing SURFCAM customers with world class precision and control over their NC programming environment when using SolidWorks design models in their machine shops.
SURFCAM’s powerful associativity enables programmers to open native SolidWorks 2013 files directly into SURFCAM 6, completely eliminating the translation process. When changes are made to the SolidWorks design model, SURFCAM automatically recognizes the design revisions and offers to update the affected toolpaths.
