QuickCAM & AutoCAD
AutoCAD CNC Software
QuickCAM’s AutoCAD CNC software provides advanced machining control and will take design data directly from an open AutoCAD drawing file and convert it to machining data for any CNC machine with a level of automation that takes care of the detail.
AutoCAD CNC Software – create manufacturing data direct from an open AutoCAD drawing file.
• Product data can be passed between AutoCAD and QuickCAM as a single DWG file
• One single DWG file can contain all the data for a full project
• No more individual and time consuming DXF files
• Products created in QuickCAM can be customised in AutoCAD and then returned
• Products created in AutoCAD can be processed in QuickCAM for Machining
• QuickCAM applies automated toolpath management
The fastest detailing is inside QuickCAM
The fastest and most productive method of customising cabinets is by manipulating the product data inside QuickCAM. This method can be 5 times faster than the usual manual changes to a drawing of the product, which is understood to be long, slow and renowned for inaccuracy leading to errors in manufacturing.
Sometimes a drawing is the only answer
However, sometimes the situation involves the manufacturing of an item, which is very complex and totally unlike any item contained in your data base system and it is clear that a drawing is the only answer. In this case QuickCAM, a partnering company with AutoCAD, again has the best and most productive solution.
Existing QuickCAM products modified in AutoCAD
In the case of an existing cabinet needing complex changes, QuickCAM can export the cabinet to AutoCAD, for the changes to be made. Once the changes are made the cabinet can then be imported back into QuickCAM as a dwg file where it is prepared for running to the machine. Please note that by using a dwg file which contains all the data required for the cabinet is a great deal faster than using a series of dxf files to do the same job but only one file at a time.
AutoCAD created product processed in QuickCAM
AutoCAD CNC Software – In the case of a product which has been originated in AutoCAD, the complete job is imported into QuickCAM for processing.
Take the cabinet data direct from an open AutoCAD drawing file to a QuickCAM link with no need for fumbling around creating hundreds of separate DXF files to read into an outdated machining post.
QuickCAM manages the import and applies automated tooling information and toolpaths for the whole job.
