Cost Effective 2D NC Programming

Prospector Silver Edition is the cost effective approach to address machining needs that do not require 3D programming.  The Silver Edition is Prospector however the license prohibits the use of 3D machining strategies.  

Prospector Silver is the perfect solution for machining ejector and retainer plates, rails and water circuits where machining of complex 3D shapes is not required.

Prospector Silver Edition includes the key features of a full license including:

  • Machining from solid models or 2D CAD drawings.

  • All 2D machining strategies.

  • Cutter path editing.

The Modern Networked Shop

Even if your shop is organized around a dedicated NC programming department, Prospector Silver can make good sense as an electronic delivery system.  Part data and NC programs can be packaged into a Prospector project and stored on a server by the programming department.  A license of Prospector isn't even required for this step.  In the shop, machinists can pull down the project from the server when they are ready to begin work on the job.  Because the data is organized in the project, the paper trail (NC setup sheets, work orders, ...) is eliminated.  It's all self-contained in the project which acts as an electronic traveler.  The Prospector Silver licenses lets machinists view, edit, model tool assemblies and check for gouges and stock collisions.  This has the enormous benefit of giving the machinists more confidence in the programs they run as well as empowering them to make use of the most efficient tool setups to get the job done faster.  In short, the machinists can be more productive.  When they're confident a program is ready to run, the program is post processed right on the floor and sent to the machine (i.e. the programming department can eliminate the post processing step from their workload).
