Prism is a CNC programming solution for 3-axis machining centers that speeds up your programming workflow and replaces the manual machine programming for everyday parts.
In the Prism app, you create the program by selecting features directly on a 3D model of the part. With a few taps, you will be able to finalize your programming and generate runnable G-code for the machine.
Use packaged machining knowledge from leading tool suppliers to improve your programs and productivity. Prism includes built-in, ready-to-use machining strategies, to ease and expedite the programming process.
Anyone with machining knowledge can become productive with Prism in minutes. Prism does not require any experience of using CAD or CAM Software.
Prism is offered as a service linked to individual CNC machines and consists of several parts. The iPad app lets you program your CNC machines directly on the shop floor, or wherever is most convenient. The Prism cutting data engine and toolpaths/postprocessing engine do the computation-heavy work, powered by the cloud. And finally, the Prism web app binds it all together with its emphasis on workflows; this is where 3D models are turned into work orders to be programmed, and all configuration of machines and user management takes place.
ENHANCE YOUR MACHINING WORKFLOW WITH Prism!
This release of the Prism iPad app includes several big improvements. First, and most clearly visible: we have changed how the 3D CAD model and stock are drawn, adding contrast and making it easier to spot which is which.
We have also made it easier to select the right size tool for a feature. The dimensions of the selected feature are now on display, which means for example that there's no need to look at a 2D drawing to find the diameter of a hole to be drilled!
The tool parameters have been adjusted to comply with the ISO 13399 standard.
And finally, while we're on the topic of drilling, it is now easier to select holes to be drilled on the 3D CAD model. Just make sure to tap the wall of the hole and not the bottom of the hole.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
