You've heard the stories. Most CAM departments report than anywhere from 80−100% of designs from new customers are inaccurate or incomplete, often necessitating a Friday afternoon call to the designer. What can be done to optimize the data package and make the handoff to the fabricator as smooth as possible?

The October 2018 issue of Design007 Magazine looks at the design data challenges of today, and offers a variety of solutions that may help stop those calls from your CAM guy.

XNC Format: Gerber Takes Data Into the Future

05/20/2019 | Denis Morin, Karel Tavernier, Jean-Pierre Charras, and Marius Matioc
The problem is that so many NC files are of deplorable quality because the NC format was never designed as a data transfer format. It has always been a machine driver and contains all sorts of information that a drilling machine needs, but that is irrelevant and confusing for data exchange.

Smart Design Data Is Essential for Industry 4.0 Manufacturing

05/10/2019 | Patrick McGoff and David Wiens, Mentor, a Siemens business
Almost all of the conversation regarding Industry 4.0 is centered on the manufacturing floor, which is where the effect of the initiative is most felt initially. Little attention is given to the starting data for manufacturing—the data that comes from design. However, you can’t have smart manufacturing if your process begins with dumb data. As Pink Floyd said, “You can’t have your pudding if you don’t eat your meat!”

XPLM: Using PLM to Integrate ECAD and MCAD Data

05/06/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During AltiumLive in Munich, I met with Robert Huxel, XPLM’s director of business development for EMEA and APAC. XPLM offers data integration for some of the big EDA tool companies, and their tools can integrate ECAD and MCAD data into PLM systems. I asked Robert to tell us about the requirements of today’s PLM tools, the changing world of ECAD and MCAD integration, and whether these two types of data are ever going to converge.
