Prospector software operates under Windows NT and allows electronic development of the entire moldmaking process. Built-in "Wizards" guide operators through the tool and cutter path selection. In addition, Prospector generates "bulletproof" cutter paths by alerting operators to potential violations or design flaws created by off-line CAD/CAM systems. The software also features a Remaining Stock Model feature. Brochure explains how Prospector helps machinists on the shop floor make decisions based on conditions that may not have been apparent in the CAM room.
