Optimally Designed Menus
Expedite 3D Features and Functions
3-D/Windows features the convenience of icons and pull down menus, logically
designed for quick selections and reduced programming time.
Geometry Creation and Display
EXPEDITE 3-D/Windows has all the required features to easily create new
geometry or build upon existing geometry. In addition, multiple independent
views can be presented on the screen at the same time, all individually
Graphical User Interface that:
- Simplifies part programming by
graphically expressing the desired method of machining to allow the user
to concentrate on machining techniques, not arithmetic or geometry
- Reduces programming time and cost due to
improved programming throughput, error reduction, and simplified
- Increases a programmer's productivity
through its straight-forward design which includes a multiple
independent view feature. This feature allows the user to create as may
view windows as desired, and all simultaneously active on the screen at
the same time.
- Provides users of EXPEDITE 3-D/Windows
with support for more than traditional milling and turning applications.
EXPEDITE 3-D/Windows can also be used to program most 4- and 5-axis wire
EDM machines, including Agietron, Elox, Japax, and Mitsubishi.
- Fully utilizes the power of Microsoft's
Windows environment for easy of use, compatibility with other Windows
applications, and complete online documentation. Also included is a full
tutorial that provides modular lessons for each aspect of the product's
capabilities. Both the online documentation and the tutorial include
sketches for clarity.
Standard Machining Operations
With the click of a mouse, EXPEDITE 3-D/Windows generates tool paths for all
Turning and Milling operations.
IntelliPost Postprocessor Generator
EXPEDITE 3-D/Windows works seamlessly with IntelliPost, the world's premier
PostProcessing system. This gives
you the capability to configure postprocessors for 2- through 5-axis
machines such as lathes, mills, machining centers, flame, plasma, laser
cutters, wire EDM, hybrid machines and grinders.
To further simplify the task of programming EXPEDITE 3-D/Windows includes
numerous machining macros. Stock removal, grooving, threading, undercut
finishing, pocketing, etc. are a few of the time saving, built-in features.
When assistance is needed, EXPEDITE 3-D/Windows offers help based on a
hypertext application. This unique context-sensitive Help feature includes a
complete Tutorial as part of the EXPEDITE 3-D/Windows package.
