The software can be used for all types of toolmaking and incorporates the company's PS-Exchange data-translation software, enabling the program to read files from all the main CAD systems. Once imported, the models can be marked up with any necessary measurements and exact values can be displayed at any point as required. delcam.gocomp.biz/12
