Microvellum Inc., a leading cabinet design to manufacturing software provider, specializing in AutoCAD-based CAD/CAM/CIM technologies, is headed to AWFS 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada July 19-22, North America’s largest woodworking show in 2017.
“Our team is gearing up for another exciting AWFS.” says David Fairbanks of Microvellum.
“If you’re headed to Vegas this July looking for new, cutting-edge technology that’s going to provide an immediate return on investment, you have to check out our Knowledge Centers and learn about our new Product Builder technology. Our users have reported that they are saving as much as 70% of their time when creating custom products like millwork walls, reception desks, and nurse’s stations.” continued Fairbanks.
Microvellum’s first product builder, Extruded Product Builder, was previewed at last year’s IWF trade show in Atlanta, Georgia and later released to market in the Fall of 2016. Extruded Product Builder enables users to create machine-ready 3D products from simple 2D AutoCAD sections. “Some users have labeled Microvellum’s Builder Technology as magic”, stated Fairbanks. “It automates the process of creating complex products that often take days or weeks to engineer.” Users of this AutoCAD-based, time-saving tool can create one-off products in minutes. Fairbanks added further.
Microvellum will be debuting an updated version of Extruded Product Builder at AWFS 2017. Their latest release will include added functionality, automated tools and user-requested features.
Along with the updated version of Extruded Product Builder, a new product will also be showcased. “After the successful launch of Extruded Product Builder, our development team started on the next product builder, Unique Product Builder.” continued Fairbanks. “We wanted to provide users with a tool to quickly create one-off cabinets, products that may not exist in a library. We focused on using a visual means of designing and engineering products, a core principle of our Product Builder technology. We’re proud to announce that the tool is a completely new way of building products and it’s already gaining interest within our user base” continued Fairbanks.
Unique Product Builder was previewed at TechCon 2017, Microvellum’s annual User Group Conference and training event in Jacksonville, Oregon on April 27. Similar to Extruded Product Builder, it enables users to create complex product from simple geometry, apply machining, and manipulate parts and construction methods in AutoCAD. To watch this product one can go to the official site of Microvellum.
“As a custom commercial millwork shop, we are encountering the need for custom cabinets that aren’t in our library on a daily basis. Unique Product Builder finally addresses this need in a way that allows any of my engineers to visually create these products using simple tools, and without having to touch the spreadsheet. Paired with the new Product Properties Interface, an engineer who is relatively new to Microvellum can create solid products with accurate machining in a fraction of the time it used to take.” says Jacob Edmund, Engineering Manager for Mortensen Woodwork, Inc.
