FX TUBE

3D CAD/CAM

PROCESS: 3D SOFTWARE

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION:

FX Tube is a PC based system for tube & pipe processing that can create complex pipe shapes via imported solid models, 2D CAD data or internal drafting features. Includes multiple nesting functions and a 3D simulation mode for fully interactive interference detection.

PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGES:

  • Increased productivity with an easy input system to define geometric features, high speed nesting functions to cut multiple parts on multiple pipe materials, and a 3D simulation of machine processing moves to check for torch, chuck and workpiece interference.
  • Adds hole and cut shape patterns to reduce input time of drawing, reduces errors in making drawings by utilizing the preview function and automatically optimizes processing by matching to the material shape.
  • Supports DXF, IGES, DWG, 3D-IGES and STEP data with additional options, including the IFC/TEKLA CAD systems popular in the construction market.
