MecSoft Launches VisualCAMc Beta for Onshape
IRVINE, CA, USA, Feb 6, 2018 – MecSoft Corporation, the developer of computer aided manufacturing (CAM) software solutions, announces the launch of a free public Beta program for VisualCAMc, its cloud hosted, fully integrated CAM add-on app for Onshape. The beta is free and available for anyone who has an Onshape account. The VisualCAMc Beta application can be added by browsing the Onshape App Store and selecting VisualCAMc in the CAM category of applications.
VisualCAMc leverages the legendary manufacturing capabilities of MecSoft’s desktop based VisualCAM product running remotely across the internet on a server. A brand-new browser based user interface allows this product to be used from any device, anytime and from anywhere in the world.
Features of this product include:
- Fully cloud based – no downloads required
- Runs as a tab inside the Onshape environment
- Browser interface allows use from any device, anytime, and from anywhere
- Uses the same geometry kernel as Onshape – allows error free data transfer
- Uses MecSoft’s industry proven, production level CAM technology
- Includes 2 ½ Axis and 3 Axis milling (more to come)
“We are absolutely thrilled to be taking our private Beta program for VisualCAMc public. We have worked hard with our early beta users to not only add new functionality but also to make VisualCAMc more user-friendly and to make sure that VisualCAMc fulfills the promise of being a production level CAM product running fully on the cloud. This is another important milestone for MecSoft as we ready VisualCAMc for a full commercial release during the early part of this year.” stated Joe Anand President of MecSoft.
“Onshape is very excited to see the launch of the public beta program of VisualCAMc – an Integrated Cloud App. This represents a big milestone for Onshape customers to have a production level CAM App, fully on the cloud. No more downloads, no more installs, no more being held hostage to your hardware. Our users require industrial strength CAM and VisualCAMc will bring that to them,” says Joe Dunne Manager of Developer Relations at Onshape.
We will be showing VisualCAMc at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing trade show in Anaheim on Feb 6-8 in Anaheim, CA. Come join us at the Onshape’s booth #3401.
