Mastercam and Unigraphics/NX Data Exchange

Mastercam users can open native Unigraphics/NX part or assembly files without a Unigraphics/NX license requirement using UG Read. With UG Read, you also gain the unique 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. Now, engineers can spend more time designing, analyzing, and solving problems.

Ernie Husted, President of Verisurf, says, “The UG Read is a great tool to have for opening native UG part files. You can do this without owning a seat of NX or UG. This can give you the competitive edge you have been looking for.”

Here are some features and benefits of UG Read:

  • Reliable and high quality geometry import
  • Fully integrates with Mastercam File Open menu
  • Reads part files fast
  • 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. For more information on the UG Read translator, please contact your local Mastercam reseller.
