Tecnos has just released and is presenting the beta version of its Masterwork CAM application from 14 to 18 May at the LIGNA+ exhibition at Deutsche Messe in Hannover, Germany. Masterwork (illustrated by the screen-shot below) integrates the LGS geometric constraints solver into a completely new project which is developed using OpenCASCADE as the basic geometry kernel. “The fact that you have already developed a sort of integrator is an advantage for us” – says Marco Dell'Eugenio, Tecnos project leading developer. Masterwork provides combination of 2D and 3D CAM functionality as well as multi-axis CNC code generation.
LGS 2D/3D provides an affordable solution for strong variational and constraint-based functionality. Through the scalable architecture of LGS, variational and parametric techniques become available in a wide range of the geometry modeling products in particular in CAM, where there’s strong need to maintain offset curves, tangency and perpendicularity of tool axis and detail surface, work with inverse kinematics and solve many other non-trivial geometry problems.
