TopSolid also allows the reading of geometric and dimensional tolerances as well as surface conditions via the PMIs.

Finally, thanks to TopSolid'Cam Essential, you are able to quickly and easily modify imported 3D shapes using the FreeShape tool. This allows you to apply average dimensions to your parts before machining them.

Boost your productivity

Save your knowledge

Save the settings made in the operations very quickly thanks to the presets.  Each created preset can then be reused at will on any other part. This is a very simple and fast solution.

Another solution: copy and paste a machining program from an already machined part to a new part to be programmed. This is also a very efficient solution which offers significant productivity gains.


TopSolid'Cam Essential offers two methods.

A first level of check by simulating the calculated machining paths.

A second level of control by material removal integrating collision management and comparison with your customer's initial model.

Modification management

Simply replay a machining sequence on the modified parts

TopSolid'Cam Essential takes into account the adjustments made in the CAD environment and automatically adapts the machining program.

Communicate easily with your workshop by automatically producing adapted documentation such as tool lists, machining times, operation lists, part drawings, etc.

The post-processors delivered for your machines will be optimized and will perfectly meet your needs.

Finally, check your parts with TopSolid'Inspection!
