  • PC-DMIS Cad vs. Cad++

    I am trying to figure out what the difference is in the two versions. I am currently running 3.5 and 3.7 Cad.
    I am in the Areospace production (airplane parts). I am getting to use alot more Cad models.
    Is there more feature that would make it easier with Cad++ or is it mainly for Scanning.
    Just trying to see if I can build a basis to try and get Cad++ from the boss.
    All input would be great.
    Thanks

    With CAD++ you get many more auto-features.
    Lately, it occurs to me
    What a long, strange trip it's been.

        Get the power of ********'s marketing strategies behind you. Contact your sales rep and ask them that question. BTW, I am pretty sure that would be the same as mine, Mr. Steve Lee. PM me if you need his #.

          I know Steve and asked him the same question. Here is what I got: PCDMIS CAD has seven basic autofeatures. CAD++ has those seven autofeatures plus nine more autofeatures plus more for scanning. I've tried to get management to upgrade to CAD++ since we bought the CMM with just CAD and they don't want to spend the cash.

            CAD++ use to be called " Sheet Metal Options" also known as " Curves ans Surfaces". What do you produce? If it is sheet metal or platics it is well worth the money in time saved and accuracy of results.

              It was worth it to me just for the Highpoint auto feature.

                What I am gathering is this,
                Since I run areospace parts that have alot of different types of profile, it probably wouldn't do me any good.

                  Keep in mind some features can be loaded by purchasing modules. Running custprog.exe in the pcdmis directory will tell you what you have and don't have. You don't always have to upgrade to get something.
                  I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

                    Help|About from within PCDMIS gives you the same thing without the hassle of finding custprog...

                      No, I would say it is to your advantage to.

                        I will do you good if you have an elipse you need to measure. I'm running CAD and they keep bringing me parts with elipse on them. I think it would be much easier if I could make an autoelipse which is a CAD++ feature.

                          I agree with John. I do not have ++ but wish I did. I think that the auto highpoint feature would make it worth the money for the parts that we check.

                            I think I will try to put something together and ask for it.
                            I will call and see what the cost is.

                            Thanks for the input.
