Integration Allows SpaceClaim to Provide Best-of-Class
3D Solutions to Manufacturing Customers
CONCORD, MA, and CINCINNATI, OH, February 21, 2012 – SpaceClaim® (www.spaceclaim.com), the leader in direct modeling software that enables all engineers to work in 3D, and SigmaTEK Systems LLC (www.sigmanest.com), the leading CAD/CAM nesting system for plasma, laser, punch, oxyfuel, waterjet, router, knife, tube-pipe and combination cutting machines, announced today that SpaceClaim Engineer can be directly integrated with SigmnaNEST®. This integration, which is embedded in SigmaNEST, ensures that SpaceClaim manufacturing customers have seamless transition from 3D CAD to NC programming for virtually all cutting machines.
SigmaNEST ensures superior material utilization, machine motion optimization, and maximum part quality balanced with cutting speed, work flow integration, material handling, accurate estimates, and information management. “This partnership further solidifies SpaceClaim and 3D Direct Modeling as a quickly emerging player and technology in the industry,” said James Lindsey, SigmaTEK Systems Product Manager. “Direct model to shop-floor production eliminates the need to export models into often unreliable neutral file formats slashing downstream rework, accelerating productivity, and ensuring that design integrity is maintained.”
“This integration allows our customers to easily nest parts for manufacturing once prepared, optimized, and flattened in SpaceClaim, without having to know complex and expensive traditional feature-based CAD systems,” said Rich Moore, SpaceClaim Vice President of Business Development. “SpaceClaim can dramatically lower CAD expenses for SigmaNEST customers by removing their need to maintain several disparate, expensive CAD applications.” About SigmaTEK
