SolidCAM blazes the trail for CAM at SolidWorks World 2011

Even though SolidCAM has been in every SolidWorks world for the last 10 years, SolidCAM’s attendance this year was actually packed full of first time milestones.

This was the first time that SolidCAM was a Gold Sponsor at the event, which came with the distinction of being the only CAM provider at the prestigious Gold Level Sponsor. As shown from the sign posted at the main entrance, this put SolidCAM at the same level of perennial powerhouses Intel and Nvidia.

Dr.Emil Somekh, the Managing Director of SolidCAM commented, “SolidWorks World is an excellent opportunity to get close to both the SolidWorks user community, as well as to SolidWorks personnel. This yields huge benefits in terms of understanding what our customers want, the direction that SolidWorks is heading, as well as showing the users and SolidWorks personnel how far SolidCAM has come in creating the ultimate integrated SolidWorks CAM solution."

SolidWorks World 2011 was also the first public showing of iMachining in North America. Our booth featured two displays showing the incredible material removal rates of iMachining. The overall viewer impressions from iMachining included much amazement and excitement.

In another “first”, The Nvidia booth featured SolidCAM in a live display of integrated end to end “Design to CAM” with Travertson Motorcycles. Christian Travert, the visionary owner of Travertson Motorcycles mentioned, “At first, I was a little nervous showing how I use SolidCAM to program my parts directly from my SolidWorks. But as I received so many positive comments from people, who did not know that this could be done, I quickly felt my presentation had a major positive impact on the attendees at the Nvidia booth.”

SolidCAM was also asked (for the first time) to do a technical presentation about the past, present and future of CAM. This presentation, given by Ken Merritt, one of SolidCAM’s Senior Application Engineers, focused on the history of CAM in general and culminated in a discussion of iMachining, the next level in CAM Technology.

Shaun Mymudes, our Sales manager in North America, was interviewed by MCad CAFÉ, to explain the new items that SolidCAM was featuring at the show. Our new extremely affordable, SolidCAM Xpress, iMachining and the soon to be released SolidCAM 2011 were featured prominently in the interview.

SolidCAM once again set the bar by being the first and only SolidWorks partner to distribute 4,000 Demonstration DVD’s that were attached to flyers included in the attendee “welcome bags”. SolidWorks personnel commented on this approach as being both “innovative” and “helpful” for attendees to get acquainted with the power of integrated CAD and CAM.
