Mastercam users open native Unigraphics/NX part or assembly files without a Unigraphics/NX license requirement using UG Read. With UG Read, users also gain the ability to import product manufacturing information data, such as properties, datums, dimensions, notes, geometric tolerances, and datum targets.
UG Read eliminates the step of having to translate native Unigraphics/NX part files through an intermediary file format such as IGES, STEP, or Parasolids.
UG Read features:
- Geometry import
- Fully integrates with Mastercam File Open menu
- Displays part properties
- Maps assembly parts to levels
- Supports layers to levels
- Supports layer and geometry names
Mastercam customers that had licensed the previous version of the UG reader can upgrade at a discounted price, for a limited time.
