LTU’s Blue Devil Motorsports teams plan to use the software to create some of the parts needed to assemble their vehicles for international competitions.

 

TST Tooling Software Technology and Vero Software have made an in-kind grant of $750,000 worth of Edgecam software to Lawrence Technological University. This in-kind grant gives LTU students access to the same technology that companies around the world use every day to machine components that are manufactured in a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, defence, machinery, medical, high tech, and electronics.

Giving students access to sophisticated toolpath generation with seamless CAD integration, accelerating time to market with knowledge-based machining will provide them with a skill that will be valuable as they enter the workforce. Who can argue with that?

In Edgecam’s newest release, students are guided through the programming process in five easy steps--part setup, stock and fixtures, find features, toolpath creation and post processing. Once each step is complete, the user moves to the next stage, completing each process, which results in a fully programmed, fully collision-checked part with a CNC code generated.
