Retrieving CAD assemblies for costing (quotation) or for manufacturing (sheet metal CAM) often requires the use of several software tools and implies repetitive and time-consuming tasks. With assembly2CAM, a module that is integrated in almaCAM software, importing CAD assemblies becomes easy and quick by allowing the processing of any type of assembly parts (sheet metal parts, tubes and supplies), either for quotation- or for manufacturing- purpose, with almaQuote and almaCAM Cut/Punch software applications respectively.
With assembly2CAM, it only takes a few minutes to import a CAD assembly, retrieve the corresponding quantities of parts, start the automatic geometrical recognition of the assembly, check or edit the part data and add operations for the quote calculation.
The imported assembly can also be used directly for the CAM preparation of parts to cut or punch with almaCAM.
Taking advantage of the powerful functions of almaCAM, the new generation CAM software for sheet-metal, and integrating the most advanced algorithms and software components of Alma, assembly2CAM is the most comprehensive and multipurpose assembly import tool in the market.

“Using our old software, it used to take us 5 hours to produce a quote for a mechanical-welded assembly consisting of 60 to 80 components. With almaQuote it takes just 30 to 45 minutes, and more recently 15 minutes, since we now have the new assembly import module.”
