The Stock Automation Engine inside ESPRIT underwent a refactoring to drastically reduce calculation times. Now, when stock automation is enabled, Facing, Pocketing and Contouring operations are calculated in seconds rather than minutes. The same refactoring is applied to 3-Axis Mold Roughing to compute in-process stock in dramatically less time, even on complex parts.
As we synchronize the virtual and physical worlds, stock awareness brings significant advancements to the way a CAM system interacts with subtractive machining processes. Read our white paper to learn more about ESPRIT® 2017 stock awareness capabilities.
