Speeding Up Rapid Tooling

From: Cindy A. Simon (Csimon@materialise.com)
Date: Fri Aug 11 2000 - 19:26:21 EEST

This educational symposium will demonstrate how to use STL files of parts
for tool design and CNC milling.
Why is this of importance?
* Resolve Interfacing Issues
* Automate Operations
        -Parting Plane Definition
        -Parting Line Definition
        -Undercut Detection
        -Assigning Draft
        -Core & Cavity Creation.
What kinds of tools are we looking at: Patterns & Injection Molds.
Technical case studies from Materialise, MecSoft <http://www.mecsoft.com>
and Vantico <http://www.vantico.com> customers will feature how to solve a
product design issue to achieve an improved product with competitive edge.
Learn how to cut costs, save time, increase quality and productivity.
