Delcam has added a new level to its PS-Moldmaker drawings—3D. The highly automated system allows designers to take their traditional 2D drawing skills and apply them to drawings in 3D. PS-Moldmaker is integrated with powerSHAPE hybrid modeling program. Using these two programs together enables the user to produce non-standard components or mechanisms. It also allows companies to eliminate 2D models and instead develop an entire mold in 3D by one team. For more information, visit http://rbi.ims.ca/3851-512.
