How many Cimatron users are here.Say hi.
I am cimatron user.
I've never heard of this software but just checked out thier website. How do you guys like the CAM aspect? What's a ballpark figure on price?
I can see that not many of the 20000 users have found this site, or perhaps they are just too busy getting on with work, and they do not want to share their secrets woth all and sundry.
No, jokeing apart the users of Cimatron E (now up to E8) have much more than just CAM to work with, as leaders in tool design software Cimatron have a very impressive suit of modules that cover every aspect, from part design, tool design (both mould and die), one of the best parting solutions for seperating Cavity/Core & side action sliders , electrode extraction, micro mill shop floor viewers, Reverse engineering, shoe design, mill turn, wire EDM, 3 axis mill, 5 axis mill. part assembly AND a Full suit of native file translators.
All this from one provider. This parametric solid/ surface solution gives the best of both worlds
You got another one here. Used Surfcam, Delcam Powermill and a little Mastercam x for electrodes and high speed milling. I like Cimatron the best.
How is Cimatron for 4 axis horizontal production tombstone milling? Anyone use it for this?
I have used Cimatrom, old version 6. You can't beat it for mold making and any type of CAM. Currently using UGS NX4. I would really like to have Cimatron agian so I can get some work done.
Long time Cimatron user. E8 Nothing beats if for mold & die work.
17 year Cimatron programmer here.
I know on a mold the parts have to have a great finish and of course be dimensional there.
I other cam systems there is 3d offset and parellel toopaths for finishing. I that what you use in Cimatron also? Is there something else for finishing?
What scallop height is usually programmed?
For toolpath type I am refering to milling a core type part.
Been running Cimatron for about 7yrs now. Just started working with the 8.5 beta and have few complaints. It is absolutely great for electrodes and NC, I am still feeling out the mold design capabilities. It has a great blend of solid and surface parametric modeling.
