Givat Shmuel, Israel – November 2, 2009 – Cimatron Limited (Nasdaq: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for mold, tool and die makers as well as manufacturers of discrete parts, announced that it has released a 64-bit Version [beta] of CimatronE 9.0.
The 64-bit version was developed in close collaboration with Microsoft and Intel and is compatible with all 64-bit Windows Operating Systems, including Windows 7. The version was also checked in cooperation with several graphic card manufacturers, including ATI and Nvidia.
Operating at 64-bits allows software to take advantage of an unlimited amount of memory.
As a result, users will be able to perform any level of operation, no matter how complex. The 64-bit version also improves performance for users who work with large or complex projects, especially in CAD.
Although Cimatron has offered a 64-bit compatible version since 2007, this is the first version of CimatronE that is native to 64-bit operating systems.
"Though many CAD/CAM systems claim to be compatible with 64-bit operating systems, Cimatron is proud to be amongst the few leaders who offer a true native 64-bit version, making full use of the PC's memory and processing power" said Roy Sterenthal, VP of Research and Development for Cimatron. "Our mission is to ensure that our customers always have a competitive edge by empowering them to take advantage of the most advanced technologies as soon as they become available."
While the 64-bit version offers advantages to all users of powerful computers, manufacturers who work with very large assemblies (especially molds and dies), with thousands of parts and tens of thousands of surfaces, will derive the most benefit from the native 64-bit version. NC programmers who work with very large toolpaths will also find their process is accelerated by more effective use of available memory.
CimatronE files can be seamlessly shared and interchanged between the 32 and 64-bit versions of CimatronE 9.0, without any need for conversion. Thus, users can work in a hybrid environment, making the best use of their existing hardware, where each job can be assigned to the most appropriate platform.
The CimatronE 9.0 64-bit version is available free-of-charge to any CimatronE user on maintenance contract.
