Peddinghaus releases new updates and brochure for its Raptor Software

Design Data partner Peddinghaus recently announced the inclusion of its parts tracking utility PeddiTrack in the company’s Raptor 3D CAD/CAM Software. PeddiTrack works in the background of the CNC control, creating output files that display vital information about part production.

PeddiTrack enables automatic documentation of production, the potential to view progress remotely, the ability to monitor employee productivity and eliminates human error in the production monitoring process.

Learn more about PeddiTrack in Raptor on the Raptor website.

In addition to this announcement, Peddinghaus released a new brochure for Raptor, highlighting the new integration with PeddiTrack and also mentioning the software’s integration with SDS/2.

Raptor and SDS/2 work together because Raptor is designed for fabricators, allowing the export of part data into a DSTV file to be imported into the software.

Learn more about Raptor and read the brochure on Peddinghaus’ website.

AISC BIMsteel Workshops Coming to a City Near You

This summer and fall, AISC is offering free BIMsteel Workshops in cities across the U.S. as a part of the organization’s BIMsteel Interoperability Initiatives for the Structural Steel Industry.

As the construction industry changes, collaborative delivery methods like Integrated Project Delivery, Design-Build, and Design-Assist become more common, and the need for data and knowledge exchange is growing. Automation and efficiency are at our fingertips in the structural steel industry, as we embrace technological advances of software, machinery, and robotics. 

These BIMsteel Workshops and other BIMsteel initiatives “aim to help the industry take advantage of these opportunities by developing new processes and improved methods of data transfer and sharing such that we achieve the potential this new era promises,” according to AISC’s website.

AISC’s website has all the details about the BIMsteel Workshops — including dates, an agenda, and registration information.
