VisualCAM 2018 (Includes VisualCAD 2018)
VisualCAM along with VisualCAD is MecSoft’s standalone CAD/CAM package that is considered the best valued CAD/CAM system on the market today. VisualCAD/CAM features MecSoft’s FREE and easy-to-use CAD program VisualCAD, which is the host platform for the VisualCAM and Visual3DPRINT plug-in products.
VisualCAM is MecSoft’s flagship CAM product that addresses the CNC machining market needs with modules VisualMILL, VisualTURN, VisualNEST, and VisualART to address specific needs of various CNC manufacturing processes.
VisualCAD 2018 with its modern user interface, makes creation of 2D and 3D curves as well as 3D surfaces, solids and meshes easy and efficient. With a complete geometry creation and manipulation tool-set and fast shaded graphics and rendering, VisualCAD 2018 is a perfect system for first time CAD users and/or educational users. It includes numerous file importing capabilities such as DXF/DWG, IGES, STEP and other file formats making it also an ideal companion system for your mainline CAD system. Most of all VisualCAD 2018 is a completely free!
VisualMILL, our flag-ship CAM software package, is ideal for mold, die & tooling, wood working, rapid-prototyping and general machining. VisualMILL is one of five modules in our standalone CAD/CAM suite, VisualCAD/CAM. VisualMILL includes 2-1/2, 3, 4 & 5 axis machining functionality. It comes with hundreds of free post-processors and a post-processor generator to create your own. Priced right for the cost conscious buyer, VisualMILL CAM software delivers outstanding value for your investment.
VisualTURN is a powerful 2 axis Turning Center programming system, that is included as a separately licensed module inside VisualCAM 2018. This module includes Turn Roughing, Finishing, Groove Roughing, Finishing, Threading, Parting, hole machining & free post processors.
VisualNEST, a separately priced module, is MecSoft’s cost effective solution for optimally arranging and fitting geometric shapes onto sheets of stock material. It provides two primary nesting capabilities: Rectangular Nesting and True Shape Nesting. For both solutions, individual 2D CAD shapes can be arranged on sheets according to user-defined quantities, spacing, and with orientation control, including material grain restrictions.
VisualART 2018 is a separately priced module within VisualCAD/CAM used to convert artwork into geometry suitable for machining. This plug-in introduces exciting new modeling techniques for modeling artistic shapes using raster bitmap images. Used in conjunction with VisualCAM’s 3D modeling tools, it offers a complementary set of modeling techniques for jewelry design, sign making and model making.
