Esprit, CAD/CAM ready for the future.


I had the pleasure a few weeks ago sitting through a 45min webinar presented by David Bartholomew from DP Technology. The title was “Boost your productivity with Esprit”.
(DP Technology, developers of Esprit is one of the major CAD/CAM software in the world)

David started out with numbers describing that Esprit at this point distributes in 80 countries and available in 15 different languages, but also pointing out with the speed of computer technology there is no time for a company like theirs to lean back and enjoy the numbers. DP Technology is aware of the challenges ahead, and is ready to be part of “hot” topics such as cloud technology where the muscles of CAM will be hanging above processing toolpaths and creating NC-code.

A major tool builder did research on where the cost and hold up in the manufacturing process is, with the results aiming at CAD/CAM responsible for 20-85% of the headaches. But with a business model wrapped around being able to adapt and change on the fly. Esprit has tools as patented 5-axis composite technology and edge cutting multitasking swiss style turning, which has proven to be steps ahead of the competition.

The cool thing about this presentation was that you really got the feeling that DP Technology wants to be right there alongside their costumers providing the tools need for companies to be on the cutting edge of technology. I think that webinars are a refreshing way to reach out to existing costumers compared to the sometime long winded newsletters.

  • I highly suggest you evaluate a seat of Esprit and write an in depth review of Esprit’s surfacing toolpath technology that DP Technology got when they purchased Auton. I think you would be doing many CAM users a favor if you focused on how DP Technology surfacing toolpath compares to Mastercam’s approach which uses the ModuleWorks software component.

    Which is more powerful and easier to use?

    In the last three days my blog has well over 1,000 hits to the Esprit 2008 Vs. Mastercam X4 page because my review was mentioned on the Outhouse Solutions e-Mastercam clique of idiots forum by a Mastercam user who knows the truth when he sees it. My review is the kind of CAM review that one unfortunately can’t read anywhere else on the web. : (

    Unfortunately what my Esprit 2008 Vs Mastercam review lacks is a direct comparison of Mastercam surfacing toolpath and lathe toolpath to Esprit’s because I personally lack the needed skills to make those comparisons. Perhaps you can fill in the gaps that I don’t cover using my style of review which cuts through the bullshit that one reads on the Outhouse Solutions eMastercam forum and just lays the facts on the table.

  • Hi Jon,
    Thank you for taking the time to read and more so to comment.
    I will defiantly consider your suggestion in regards to do a heads up comparison between Esprit vs. Mastercam if I get the opportunity.
    My knowledge of Esprit is limited, but from your blog post I defiantly get the impression that Esprit is a serious power CAD/CAM product.
    Again, thank you for your comment.

    Best regards,
    Lars
