Initial SmartCAM v13.0 Applications Released

April 4, 2006 - Eugene Oregon - SmartCAMcnc has announced the release of Production Milling v13, and CAM Connection v13.

Highlighted improvements to the entire suite of CAM software applications include:

  • Hide Selected/Unselected — allows any element or set of elements to be hidden using the group tool – no need to mask an entire Layer or Step
  • Display Filters — allows hidden, masked, and surface elements to be removed from the list view – quickly reduce the sequence list to visible toolpath elements
  • Container Elements — collapse a sequence of many elements into a single named and described element – reduce sequence complexity and further documents process
  • Dynamic Viewing — use mouse button Zoom/Pan/Rotate controls – quickly change view in a single viewing mode
  • Customization Improvements — add custom user functions to existing toolboxes to customize user interface and integrate new commands where they fit best

The next scheduled release is SmartCAM Production Turning v13 in the second week of April 2006.
