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.
Unigraphics is a former name for Siemens NX, an advanced CAD/CAM/CAE software application suite. However, veterans are still using the Unigraphics name.
In 2002, the new version of Siemens Unigraphics, merged with I-DEAS software, was released and called NX, which means "Next Generation". In fact, it was the last version of the software released under the Unigraphics name. All further releases became known as NX. So the addition of I-DEAS functionality to the core code of the Unigraphics has become the basis of the existing NX product line.
Siemens NX / Unigraphics use a .prt extension, which contains 3D CAD parts.
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
