esprit fx from dp technology
ESPRIT FX is the latest in advanced CAD to CAM feature exchange technology, included in ESPRIT 2007, which allows users to automatically capture the original design intent, clearly define what the user is machining, and program parts quicker and more accurately.
Going beyond transferring just the part geometry, the FX™ technology provides portions of the original CAD Feature Tree directly inside the ESPRIT user interface thereby including the complete original design intent – features, tolerances, material properties, surface finishes, administrative data, etc. Using the FX™ technology the CAD features and their associated properties are mapped into machinable features providing a complete definition of ‘what’ is being machined. These manufacturing features and their properties are then fed into the ESPRIT KnowledgeBase which aid the user in automatically selecting how to machine the part based upon existing best practices.
