Roland Develops New CAM Software for RP & Custom Rapid Manufacturing

IRVINE, CA July 3, 2008 Roland DGA Corporation has introduced SRP Player Pro – new CAM software that simplifies production and delivers an exceptional surface finish. Compatible with all Roland SRP® milling devices, SRP Player Pro sells for $4,500 and is ideal for all rapid prototyping and custom rapid manufacturing applications.

“SRP Player Pro excels in production environments where speed, tight tolerances, and smooth surface finishes are critical,” said Pedro Gonzalez, Roland DGA application engineer. “At $4,500, this new CAM software bridges the large gap between basic $3,000 programs and those costing around $20,000.”

SRP Player Pro uses advanced polygonal smoothing technology to achieve smooth surfaces using STL files. It also takes IGES files and generates tool paths directly, without converting them into polygonal data. The result is superior parts with smooth surfaces and accurate, tight-fit precision.

Ease of Use

SRP Player Pro offers a straightforward and intuitive workflow throughout the entire workflow. The software simplifies production using illustrated prompts and guides users through each step.

SRP Player Pro

•        Optimum tool paths for each application for surface or polygonal data
•        Produces flawless shapes with smooth, accurate curves
•        Extends the lifespan of tools by reducing their cutting load
•        Cuts only desired sections, producing shapes with maximum efficiency
•        Detailed parameter settings ensure professional precision and quality
•        Easy-to-use, intuitive operation
•        Compatible with all Roland MDX Series milling devices

Roland SRP Player Pro high performance CAM software has a list price of $4,500. The entry level SRP Player comes bundled with all Roland MDX Series milling devices. Leasing is available on all Roland products.

Roland SRP® Technology

SRP (Subtractive Rapid Prototyping) – starting with a solid object and removing unwanted material – has several advantages over traditional 3D printing. Desktop milling machines cost significantly less than 3D printers, while producing prototypes out of a wider variety of non-proprietary materials with greater precision and better surface finish. The technology is also better suited for a wide range of custom rapid manufacturing applications.

Roland MDX Series Milling Devices

Roland MDX Series milling devices are ideal for all rapid prototyping and custom rapid manufacturing applications. In addition to light metals, the desktop devices mill a wide variety of nonproprietary materials and popular engineered plastics, including ABS, Delrin and nylon. They produce functional prototypes ideal for structural, thermal, and electrical testing. Parts also meet a host of FDA and other government regulations.
