Geometric has launched the 2014 version of its intuitive solids-based CNC programming solution, CAMWorks. With the addition of true G-code simulation, CAMWorks  is a complete CAD/CAM solution fully integrated end-to-end solution from the initial part design, to creating a CNC program, to full machine simulation; thus, reducing data redundancy and saving valuable shop floor time. Along with support for SolidWorks® 2014, CAMWorks® 2014 accelerates design-to-part time improving productivity of CNC programmers with the addition of a number of enhancements including:

Turn profiles are now fully associated with the model they are extracted from. This makes them fully associative to the sketches, a first in the feature based machining world, making program changes very quick and efficient. Another addition that is particularly beneficial in mill-turn operations is the selection of turn profiles by specifying the angle at which the profile has to be extracted.

The tool vectors for the toolpaths can be viewed during Step-through simulation, making it easier to review 5-axis toolpaths. In addition, users can use a WIP (Work in Process) model as a start-up stock, when simulating sections of a toolpath, shortening the review time.
