Intelli-CAM is a highly advanced computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software program with two tools in one that can generate either 2D or 3D tool paths from 3D models. Simply import a 3D file from one of the many supported file types such as CATIA, SolidWorks, 3D DXF, or DWG, and the 3D object appears in an interactive window. Generating a 2D profile from any face or slice of the 3D shape is just a click away. The other side of Intelli-CAM shows that 3D pathing is just as easy. With the AutoPath function, the program automatically creates the waterjet-reasonable tool path and applies the required attributes for 3D cutting before exporting directly to Intelli-MAX® MAKE.
Free to OMAX JetMachining Center owners, Intelli-CAM is part of the intuitive and powerful Intelli-MAX Software Suite, which expands the operator’s capabilities. "Our job shop customers will greatly benefit from Intelli-CAM. These customers will rarely have to ask customers to re-save a file to a different format they can accept. With Intelli-CAM, now users can accept nearly all file types," says Carl Olsen. He also notes that Intelli-CAM "may be the easiest-to-use 5-axis CAM software ever."
