MachineWorks, leading provider of CNC simulation and verification, and polygonal mesh processing software, has announced a major breakthrough of its MachineWorks development software to be demoed at EuroMold.
MachineWorks includes support for mobile operating devices for the first time with the release of MachineWorks v7.3. This opens the door for a whole new range of applications on the shop floor.
MachineWorks v7.3 also introduces a wide new range of optimisations. The expertise gathered in the extensive work previously done on multithreading has been drawn on to provide substantial improvements to single-threaded performance and further multithreaded performance improvements. The result is that parts such as complex 3-axis die-molud jobs can now be simulated and verified in much reduced times, often running as much as 3 times faster on single core hardware.
As usual, the new release also contains a raft of customer-requested enhancements, further extending the range and flexibility of the MachineWorks toolkit.
"MachineWorks has developed an "intelligent multithreading" strategy that makes performance even more efficient," stated Mike Nicholson, Sales Director at MachineWorks. "In the new v7.3, multithreading reaches another level, particularly when carrying out massive numbers of cuts so, even when using multiple threads, the engine might decide that a cut would be quicker if done using a single thread and will do so."
