3D CAM Add-ons Complement Existing 2.5 CAM Plug-ins

NOVATO, Calif., August 10, 2010 – IMSI/Design®, the developer of the #1 best-selling CAD in retail, TurboCAD, announced today that it will begin distributing MecSoft’s line of VisualMILL Computer Aided Machining (CAM) titles.

“MecSoft has a long-standing reputation of delivering affordable and reliable CAM to the CNC machining industry, and we felt the combination of the two companies’ products was a natural solution,” stated Bob Mayer, COO of IMSI/Design. “IMSI/Design will continue to offer our popular 2 ½ D CAM Plug-in to TurboCAD, while the VisualMILL products round out our offerings with a true 3D CAM solution our customers can use with TurboCAD Professional.

“Our customers have been asking for a true 3D CAM solution to complement our popular 2.5D CAM offering,” stated Bob Mayer, COO of IMSI/Design. “A TurboCAD/VisualMILL solution delivers all the CNC machining power for tens of thousands of dollars less than competing solutions. It’s really quite significant.”

Along with the 2 ½ axis and hole making features, VisualMILL Standard’s key milling strategies include the valuable 3 Axis Milling methods such as Horizontal Roughing, Parallel and Horizontal Finishing, and Radial and Spiral Machining. Other features include integrated Toolpath Simulation and a comprehensive Post Processor.
