Flexible Robotic Environments partners with SolidWorks providing a new Robotic Solidworks CAD CAM solution for the robotics industry.
Patrick Olson – Motion Maker Engineering (FRE Distributor)
Flexible Robotic Environment is pleased to announce becoming a SolidWorks Solution Partner with their ModusCAM SolidWorks CAD CAM application. ModusCAM is a motion path planning software for multiple axes robotics motion and other automation process movements. The software offers ease of use and works directly in the friendly environment of Solidworks.
A 6-Axis robotic arm movement is now as simple as selecting a line on a 3D surface of your part model and then exporting a motion file to a specific hardware configuration. Set-up time for your operations will be cut drastically. Example: Motion path plan for cladding on a helix took less than 5 minutes. Click on picture at the left for the YouTube video.
- 3D sketch path in space.
- 3D sketch path on a model.
- Import 2D files and project on 3D surfaces.
- Select 3D contour features with cladding.
- 3D printing parts with slicing.
ModusCAM has been used for processes such as 3D printing, laser cladding, cold spray and 3D direct writing applications. We partner with process and integration companies providing solutions.
New options are always being worked on and FRE may configure the ModusCAM application software as you would require for your specific robotic processes.
About Flexible Robotic Environment
FRE™ is a robotic solution that combines mechanical and motor/drive components with proprietary hardware, software and controls. We design and build precision robotic solutions around your working envelope. Our A2 controller is an open architecture PC based offering an array of software options including the Aerotech A3200 software. We also design and build our own electronics as required for projects such as a Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) 6-axes Drive board. FRE holds multiple patents for robotic control and has written direct/indirect kinematics algorithms.
