  • CMM"s and CAD-CAM systems

    Ever hear of a CAD-CAM post processor that can post PC-DMIS programs? How about a conversion program that can convert from and to PC-DMIS code?

    I have used the ProEngineer CMM module which the sales rep assured me would translate straight into PC Dmis thus utilising my existing parametric cad models to their full potential........he was lying as all sales reps do of course.

    It does output a dmis file of sorts but I tried everything to get it into PC Dmis with no success.

      Maybe your thinking of Inspection Planner?

      Another Wilcox application which lets you make your CMM programs from your CAD software?

      Actually can anyone explain the difference between Inspection Planner and PCDMIS with DCI?
