To help those who build one-off and low-volume designs, we’ve introduced the Creo Mold Machining Extension. Objects like molds, tools, electrodes, and dies only need to be produced once in a while. As such, a rapid tool path creation may be more practical for product developers than the processes used to produce hundreds or thousands of products. Creo Mold Machining (MMX) gives you specialized 3-axis, numerically controlled (NC) machining capabilities – all in the Creo environment. When you change your design or tooling, the NC toolpaths change as well. Creo MMX is powered by ModuleWorks and optimized for mold, die, electrode, and prototype machining.
Benefits include the following.
- Improves product quality and manufacturing consistency by generating toolpaths directly on solid models
- Part of an integral CAD/CAM solution–no data translation required
- Reduces time-to-market via associative toolpath updates to design changes
