CIM-Tech to show 3D Manufacturing at WMS
November 1, 2017 | 11:07 am CDT

ORLANDO, Fla. -- will demonstrate Auto-CIM to convert 3D solid models to machine-ready 2D drawings, at the 2017 Woodworking Machinery and Supply Expo (WMS) in Toronto, Canada Nov. 2-4.  Auto-CIM automates the design to production process for one machine or several at the same time. The software will notify users when production is complete or needs further input.  By removing the need for CNC technicians to manually process each part, it reportedly reduces programming time.

CIM-Tech Applications Engineer Sheldon Prom says: “Prior to having Auto-CIM, manufacturers would run each job individually. With the use of Auto-CIM, now the technicians can drag jobs into a queue and the software will run the jobs automatically through Router-CIM and Solid-CIM without any human intervention.”

Prom says that one of the most appreciated features of Auto-CIM is that it has the ability to notify CNC operators by email during each step of the processing. It will message the user with relevant notifications to ensure that the required processing has started, any deviations or errors that may have occurred, and when the Auto-CIM process has been completed. These notifications allow operators and managers alike to stay connected to the programming process and know that the CNC machines are receiving the files needed to increase throughput.

See demonstrations of Auto-CIM, Solid CIM and Router-CIM 2018 at the WMS 2017 CIM-Tech Booth 1426.  In addition, AUTODESK certified expert Kenny Belfatto of CIM-Tech will present as a panel member of the Cabinet Design Conference Session on Nov. 2 at 10:30 a.m.  Belfatto will be demonstrating how to bridge the link between “Design and Driving Shop Floor Production.”  For more information go to:
