Launch of InventorCAM Xpress

A new opportunity for all companies to experience integrated CAM directly inside Inventor

Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania-- SolidCAM North America announced the new product release of InventorCAM Xpress software, the newest member of its popular InventorCAM family of CAM software products -- the world's Leading CAM software integrated directly into Inventor. InventorCAM Xpress is the new, surprisingly affordable choice for anyone to experience the power, time savings and accelerated learning curve of integrated CAM. Priced at just $1,595, InventorCAM Xpress includes the most popular 2.5D milling opeartions and 3D Mill surface machining functionality. InventorCAM Xpress truly sets the standard for “power to price”.

The advantages of InventorCAM Xpress do not end simply with the unbeatable price. Since InventorCAM Xpress is based entirely on the full InventorCAM solution:

  1. Unlike other low cost CAM products that result in a dead-end when it comes to Advanced Geometry Programming, Multi-axis milling, Lathe, Wire EDM or Mill-turn machine programming, InventorCAM is completely scalable for all CNC machine types. Customers won’t outgrow InventorCAM, so this is the last CAM solution they will ever need to purchase.
  2. Users will be getting a head-start as they get up to speed in InventorCAM Xpress, adding additional machines or modules is just an extension of what they already know.
  3. The money paid for InventorCAM Xpress can even be put towards advanced modules, so customers can grow at their own pace without worrying about a financial hit if they don’t buy advanced packages upfront.

Dr. Emil Somekh, President and Founder of SolidCAM explains, “With our long experience in integrated CAM, we have seen firsthand that once a CAM programmer has experienced creating tool paths directly inside their Inventor CAD system, they never want to go back to a standalone CAM system ever again. They can fly through their familiar Inventor program and have powerful CNC programming functions right at their fingertips. InventorCAM also eliminates many of the headaches associated with moving files between different CAD/CAM systems as file translation issues are completely eliminated. Customers tell us that one of their favorite features is our auto tool path updates for design changes. This function completely eliminates the need to start over when someone changes the Inventor CAD model. As a result, customers can realize the benefits of 3D Parametric part design where their design changes instantly flow right down to their CNC machines”. “We understand the challenges facing manufacturers in today’s world, and have created InventorCAM Xpress to address these challenges head-on”, continued Dr. Somekh. “Since budgets are extremely tight and everyone is forced to do more with less, InventorCAM Xpress is the painless way to enter the world of Inventor Integrated CAM, without a large monetary investment or fear of wasting a lot of time learning a new system. With InventorCAM, it is just another way to take an existing tool like Inventor and open up an entirely new capability for it to program their CNC machines.”


InventorCAM Xpress will also open up new opportunities in the way CAM packages, upgrades, post processors and training are purchased. Along with an extensive library of free tutorial videos, InventorCAM Xpress is offered directly through InventorCAM’s new interactive website as well as through SolidCAM’s extensive world-wide reseller network. Dr. Somekh commented, “In this age, customers have diverse needs when it comes to how they get information, make purchases and get up to speed with new programs. We offer them the choice of traditional information gathering, training and purchase experience, or if they prefer, we have created a complete internet based buying opportunity. InventorCAM Xpress is all about choices, so it was only natural for us to create options for purchase as well.”


Shaun Mymudes, Sales Manager of SolidCAM Americas explained, "Our Direct Sales Team and Resellers in the Americas believe that InventorCAM Xpress will be very valuable for Inventor users at all levels of manufacturing. They can easily start with InventorCAM Xpress, with its advantages of ease of use, painless price and full seamless integration in Inventor, and as their CAM needs grow, they can add more InventorCAM power, as needed. We believe that there is an excellent market for InventorCAM Xpress in the Americas".
