JETCAM International Sarl (Monaco) has released a free plug-in for its Expert CAD/CAM and nesting software that enables users of SolidEdge CAD parametric-feature solid modeling software  from Siemens PLM Software (Plano, Texas) to directly unfold and import 3-D files. The plug-in, available free to all users of v16 of JETCAM with a current maintenance contract, allows SolidEdge files to be automatic-ally processed using features such as Single Component Automatic Processing (SCAP) or Remote Control Processing (RCP). Under SCAP, users can set JETCAM to “listen” for files to arrive in a predetermined folder. When files arrive they can be automatically imported; tooling or profiling can be applied; and a nest of each part can be created, with NC code produced automatically. When done, JETCAM can automatically unfold and import the CAD file and construct part nests.
