Solid Edge Voyager Members with Certified Select products offer the highest level of integration. These applications are associative with Solid Edge data, meaning maximized productivity throughout your entire design and manufacturing process. When selecting an add-on application, you should always consider Certified Select products first.

As a Certified Select Product, ESPRIT’s Solid Simulation and Verification dry runs part programs on the computer to verify accuracy before actual machining. View your design on screen within the entire machining environment, including fixtures, clamps, and stock material. Everything is clearly rendered in dynamic 3D solid images. ESPRIT then accurately simulates every machine movement ensuring accurate G-code.

The SolidWorks Certified CAM Products Program was developed by SolidWorks to help end users easily identify best-in-class CNC software products that work well with SolidWorks geometry.

As a certified CAM solution for SolidWorks, ESPRIT provides seamless transitions between the design features of SolidWorks to the programming features of ESPRIT. ESPRIT users can import their part design with the push of a button. This means direct exchange of design models from SolidWorks into ESPRIT, eliminating translation. Within ESPRIT, all machining is performed directly on the solid model as designed, assuring integrity of the final part. ESPRIT's adaptive connection to SolidWorks means any changes in the SolidWorks model are reflected inside ESPRIT and the G-code program.

ANSYS SpaceClaim has created a plugin for ESPRIT that allows geometry transfer between the two products. By bringing models from ESPRIT into ANSYS SpaceClaim, users can easily create jigs, fixtures, and repair geometry prior to machining. The click button transfer will create a seamless integration between the two products.

ANSYS SpaceClaim is the leading provider of 3D direct modeling solutions that solve geometry problems fast and that enable manufacturing engineers to work in 3D without having to be a CAD expert. ANSYS SpaceClaim Engineer includes tools that prepare and repair geometry and models for manufacturing processes.

ESPRIT’s optional data exchange functionality will read the native data files from Catia, Pro/ENGINEER and Unigraphics. DP Technology provides these optional readers allowing a more seamless integration of the part models, saving the user valuable time.

ESPRIT allows users to machine CATIA part models directly from the original model eliminating the typical geometric tolerance problems and inaccuracies that result from data translation. With ESPRIT, CNC programming and tool path generation is performed on the original part model, thereby maximizing the efficiency of the programming process and the accuracy of the resulting NC program and the finished part. ESPRIT supports CNC programming from all CATIA solids, surfaces, or wireframe part models, including support for CATIA V4 and V5.
