Tech Soft 3D and OPEN MIND collaborate on CAM solutions

Tech Soft 3D, a leading provider of engineering software development toolkits, and OPEN MIND, a leading developer of CAD/CAM software solutions worldwide, have announced that HOOPS Exchange, the industry’s fast and accurate CAD data access and reuse technology for manufacturing and architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) workflows, will be integrated into hyperMILL and hyperCAD-S to ensure that all CAD and PMI data is transferred seamlessly between applications.

“Tech Soft 3D is a trusted, reliable development partner who helps us implement specific requirements and accommodate customer requests. This kind of responsiveness is critical in our industry, as well as interoperability with multiple CAD formats. HOOPS Exchange is a leading product in this area and was an easy choice for us. We are very happy to be able to offer our customers the ability to work with any CAD file type now, and not to fear any loss of data integrity when sharing files,” said Dr. Josef Koch, CTO at OPEN MIND Technologies, AG.

hyperMILL is a modular complete CAM solution for 2.5D, 3D, 5-axis, HSC/HPC, and mill-turning processes, and also includes special applications and highly efficient automation solutions. The CAM software provides technology-leading geometry analysis and tool path calculations. There are specialised routines designed for efficient programming and machining of these components on
5-axis milling or mill-turn machines. Robust CNC postprocessors are also provided to assure strong communication to machine tool controllers.

“Digital transformation is happening at lightning speed within the manufacturing industry and we are committed to helping our partners, such as OPEN MIND, keep pace with this rapid momentum. Fast access to the full integrity of data, being able to use that data without the need for an additional translator, extreme performance with low memory usage. These are all paramount to quickly building robust, sophisticated 3D applications and we are proud to be the ones our partners look to as the gold standard,” said Lionel Vieilly, Product Manager at Tech Soft 3D.
