JETCAM International s.a.r.l, Monaco, a supplier of CAD/CAM software for laser cutting machines, has updated two of its flagship products: the Expert CAD/CAM and nesting software for sheet metal and composite users, and the Premium version of its Order Controller (JOC), which provides remote ordering, geometry creation, and nesting for the Expert system.

JETCAM Expert version 16.23.02, one of several releases planned for this year to focus on punching for sheet metal, boasts 50× improvement when performing web nesting, thanks to a completely re-written underlying core. It also includes a Prima-Power XML postprocessor for Tulus-based controllers, along with other feature enhancements.

JETCAM Order Controller v8.50 provides a remote method of ordering components or assemblies within JETCAM Expert. A completely rewritten CAD import engine now supports Expert's Single Component Automatic Processing (SCAP), with which users can remotely and automatically create geometry files from multiple CAD drawings and tool them for a punching or profiling machine with just a few clicks of a mouse. JETCAM Expert automatically processes the queued files and reports back once done. The new release also includes a streamlined interface for JETCAM's Remote Control Processing (RCP) module, and a comprehensive reports designer and generator.

Both products are available for download at no cost, for JETCAM customers with a current maintenance contract.
