February 11, 2013

SolidCAM soars to new heights at SolidWorks World 2013 with Legendary Motorcycle artist Christian Travert and Quad Copter builder, FPV Manuals, showing how they use iMachining 2D and 3D to bring their creations to life in record time.


This year the mass crowd of over 4500 attendees, that were astonished as they saw the capabilities of SolidCAM’s iMachining technology used to create the amazing Travertson “V-REX” Chopper and FPV Manuals Quad Copter displayed on an incredible fully machined metal display.  The constant crowd around the display showed that attendees have considerable interest in bringing their own designs to life.  Christian Travert was also on hand too enlightened on how he uses old school artistry combined with the latest in manufacturing technology to create some of the finest choppers on the road today.  His “Flying Chopper” display attracted designers and engineers from all industries and inspired them to think in terms of doing their own fabrication with SolidWorks and SolidCAM.


Emil Somekh, founder and CEO of SolidCAM Ltd described “Our seamless integration in SolidWorks, along with our incredibly powerful iMachining, brings the most powerful tools in the CNC machining Industry directly to the fingertips of SolidWorks users.   So our goal was to bring incredible products to the show, demonstrating the power of the SolidWorks and SolidCAM fully integrated CAD/CAM solution. We are grateful to have strong partners like Travertson and FPV Manuals. Christian Travert proved the advantages of using SolidCAM right inside SolidWorks to program his CNC’s to life.  His Choppers are amazing and his dedication to only use the finest production methods are truly inspiring.  For a great talent like Christian to come to this show on our behalf is an incredible experience.  His statements about how much iMachining has increased his productivity are extremely appreciated.  In terms of showing how iMachining has impacted the fast growing field of Professional Quad Copters, our partnership with FPV Manuals also proved very successful, drawing large crowds to our booth to register to win one of their amazing copters.  From the start of the show right up to the very end, people packed the booth, seeing and truly believing, the magic of iMachining”.


The SolidCAM booth and Christian’s ‘Flying Chopper’ display were crewed by experienced SolidCAM sales, technical and demonstration staff including SolidCAM UK’s own Managing Director Gordon Drysdale and was one of  the busiest sections of the show. “We really appreciate the cooperation of SolidWorks and Nth degree, the show’s exhibit management, in setting up our displays for this year’s show”, commented Shaun Mymudes, “and we look forward to bring even more of the CNC machining experience with SolidWorks and SolidCAM to next year’s show”.
