Optomec Enters Global Sales Partnership with Mastercam Advanced Software



Optomec, a global supplier of production grade LENS additive manufacturing (AM) systems for 3-D printed metals, has entered into a global sales partnership with CNC Software, Inc., the developer of Mastercam. Optomec will sell and support Mastercam software products along with an additive plug-in tuned for the Optomec LENS process.

The LENS plug-in, which is integrated into Mastercam, leverages Mastercam's capabilities including native CAD modeling and importing, multiaxis tool path generation and visualization, and kinematic analysis providing a robust platform for AM functionality. The plug-in also allows users to control the full suite of LENS 3-D printing functionality including geometry, tool path, and processing parameters, slice planes, boundary, and fill parameters enabling multiaxis tool path generation for additive applications such as rapid prototyping, precision repair and graded coatings. The intuitive graphical user interface enables fast learning for operators already familiar with CNC machining, while also fully supporting subtractive, additive and hybrid workflows.

"Partnering with Optomec allows Mastercam to provide our award-winning technology to a specialized area of the additive market," said Dave Boucher, Director of Product Development, CNC Software, Inc. "The combination of subtractive machining that we have provided for over 35 years, along with newly developed technology to drive metal additive machines, allows Mastercam and Optomec to provide a solution for the hybrid manufacturing market. We are excited to work with Optomec and its LENS technology to provide users with a truly versatile machining solution."

"Optomec is pleased to be partnered with CNC Software, Inc., the developers of widely-used CAM software for the past 23 years," said Ken Vartanian, VP Marketing for Optomec. "The LENS plug-in provides a natural pathway for machinist to extend Mastercam functionality for additive and hybrid manufacturing applications."
