Ease of Use

Generally, Esprit is easy to use. It has a standard design software interface with a tabular menu structure. The functions of each tab and what you can do with each option are listed underneath each, making the software relatively easy to understand and use. However, there are tons of features as well as buttons, and this can be overwhelming for inexperienced designers.

Features & Functionality
Design Features

Used across various industries, EspritCAM is a powerful software that supports every CNC machine type and configuration. Not only that, this software allows you to maximize the full potential of your machine capabilities with numerous unique features.

One of those features is its patented profit milling cycles which increases the speed of your machining cycles, and in turn, reduces cycle time and ultimately increases overall tool life. Also, the 5-axis deburring cycles included in your program significantly reduce the need for human intervention.

What’s more, is its powerful resources for production machining. You can dynamically make changes to your project by editing your master workpiece. This is made possible by the automatic synchronization of multiple workpieces with the master workpiece. Also, this results in reduced cycle time as tool changes, axis rotation, and machine travel is significantly kept at a minimum.

Additionally, Esprit optimizes machining processes using a unique twin simulation feature. This involves the creation of a digital replica of the machining environment. the digital twin moves and operates exactly like the original machine set up. This way, machine users can drastically reduce machine setup time.

Visualization

Esprit allows users to design their projects in 3D

Rendering

This software allows users to produce 3D visualizations without integrating third-party hardware.

Editing

Esprit allows users to edit using a WYSIWYG editor.

Collaboration

EspritCAM allows multiple users to save and share work in one project

File import/Export

Esprit allows you to import 2D and 3D models into its interface for your users to edit and collaborate as needed

Verdict

Overall, Esprit is a great CAD/CAM software. its CAD to CAM interface makes it a go-to option for satisfying CAD/CAM needs. With this interface, users can reduce design time, as there’s no need to rebuild or edit the geometry of native parts models, they can import straight from the source. However, as the name implies, EspritCAM is more CAM than CAD. And with numerous unique features like twin simulation, multitasking, 5-axis deburring, etc., this software solution is adaptable for any type of machining process. Also, the partnership with Onshape to create a full cloud-based CAD allows for easy collaboration between users, even on different devices.
