Powermill is a 3D Computer-aided manufacturing app developed by Autodesk Inc. It runs on Microsoft Windows and is used in many different engineering industries to determine optimal toolpaths to reduce time and manufacturing costs.
Powermill rapidly creates toolpaths on large, complex parts, works with surfaces, solids and STL meshes. It uses efficient roughing strategies and can create gouge and collision free toolpaths, which can be edited and optimized. The software obtains comprehensive range of finishing toolpaths, user-defined macros and templates for automated CAM, extensive library of tool types for use with 3- and 5-axis milling, and specialist tools for demanding industries and applications.
Solid Edge is a 3D CAD, parametric feature and synchronous technology solid modeling software owned by Siemens AG. It provides solid modeling, assembly modeling and 2D orthographic view functionality for mechanical designers. Solid Edge uses Parasolid kernel.
For users from electrical manufacturing Solid Edge provides integrated electrical design, for mechanical manufacturers of use would be design tools with topology optimization. To add to it, Solid Edge can supply scalable data management capabilities which are built in the program, CNC machining and 3D printing capabilities. Solid Edge portal provides cloud-based collaboration for viewing and sharing CAD-files.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
