Solid Insight Expands its Product Solutions with SolidCAM

Dayton, OH, October 14, 2006 --( Solid Insight, a local supplier of product design, manufacturing, and development solutions, has become the Great Lakes reseller of its newest product solution for computer-aided manufacturing, SolidCAM™.

SolidCAM is totally integrated in the mainstream 3D CAD system SolidWorks, enabling all necessary operations for CNC manufacturing of a part inside SolidWorks. With its single-window integration in SolidWorks, all SolidCAM machining operations are defined, calculated and verified in the SolidWorks environment. All geometries used for machining are fully associative with the SolidWorks design model. When the geometry of a part design is modified, SolidCAM enables the user to automatically synchronize all machining operations with the updated geometry. Since no data translation is necessary, not only is precious time saved and risky errors within the production process minimized, but also the communication between designers and NC programmers is greatly improved.

“SolidCAM is a recognized leader of integrated CAD/CAM solutions based on SolidWorks, and has been realizing strong marketplace growth with software products that reduce cost and improve productivity in the design and manufacturing market,” said Brad Weaver, President of Solid Insight, LLC. “We’re very pleased to have them as our partner, as more customers move from separate CAD and CAM systems to the combined SolidCAM + SolidWorks solutions.”
