I'm betting on a software for the hardware year. Soon one of the big

Prolly esprit on the software side. Not sure who on the hardware side yet.
I see an incremental move before CAM in a CNC control becomes
Solid cut part simulation in CNC machine controls maybe the next big
"There has been a lot of talk in the industry over the past few years
about embedding simulation in CNC controller systems. This is now
beginning to happen because CNC controls are becoming more powerful
and are now capable of delivering the processing power needed by
graphics-hungry applications. In addition, there is a growing demand
for simulation and verification of programs created on conversational
MachineWorks believes that simulation will become standard on all CNC
controllers and offers an advanced and flexible solution that can be
customised to suit any application. Most programming is done at the
machine, on the shop floor. By having simulation on the controller,
operators on the shop floor are reassured that their programming /
editing is error-free before the running of the machine."
If Surfware wants to stay competitive I think Surfcam will have to
move to running inside SolidWorks. They have lost major market share.
Another option would be to get acquired.
