for Tool Makers, mold & Die Makers and Extrusion Dies Industries


PCamWire Solid (StdConic)

  • From a drwaing 2D or 3D it is possible to produce a wire tool path for cylindrical and standard conic cuts.
  • The generated path has linear and arc interpolation (G01, G02, G03) on a plane.

PCamWire Solid (AdvConic)

  • From a 2D or 3D drawing (if included in the product) you can generate the toolpath for helical cuts, with constant rake angle on the whole profile or with a rake type "ISO-range" on the arches.
  • ISO range is used for example to avoid intertagli on the arches, the corner due to excessive clearance to the workpiece height.
  • The generated code includes linear or circular movements (G01, G02, G03) on an XY plane programming, but also movements in 4 axes for the management of the ISO range for machines that require it.

PCamWire Solid (CpxConic)

  • Conic: Cylindrical cut, Standard conic cuts plus advanced conics (four axis). For example ISO radiant plus ruled surfaces. Definition of synchronization lines


Calculates: the number of segments (linear, circular), length, area, barycentre, inertial momentum, center of thrust of ordinary contours and contours which form a surface


Allows the automatic creation of the contour of a cog or all the cogged wheel, internal or external, generating the involutes in accordance with European standards (ISO) or American standards (AGMA) or Japanese standard. It offers control parameters of the profile of the cog which makes it ideal for the recovery of worn couplings


No-core module: No-core cut of the material with optimization of the superimposition, of the trajectories and of security. No slugs XX


  • Calculates a discharge surface from a variable profile in Z upwards, maximizing the opening angle. It shows pitch adjustments with land heights and wire interferences. Applicable to extrusion moulds


Automatically calculates the slanted surface knowing the diameter of the hole and the moving co-ordinates of the axis from the vertical. It allows the definition of a slanted or vertical insert, internal or external


Calculates a new surface from the section of one which already exists. The plans for sections can be freely defined even beyond the limits of the original surface. It is used in the drawing field and extrusion


Allows easy parametric forms to be created


  • Generates the discharge surface at a constant angle from variable profiles in Z. It is used in the tools field for deburring stamped pieces


CAD full mechanical functionality: all geometrical elements definition, contours assembling, quoting, hatching, and surface definition.
