CAD/CAM. Computer Aided Design and Manufacture

Computer Aided Design CAD CAMBirmingham Protoypes Limited has forefront knowledge of CAD/CAM, simulation and the latest production technology.


We currently have 4 CAD/CAM seats operating the latest VISI (VERO) software.

Our CAD/CAM capabilities include:

  • Fast blanking (VISI Blank Professional)
  • 3D Machining strategy
  • Progress Unfolding and Strip Design
  • Pressing solutions and spring back compensation

VisiVISI Blank provides valuable analysis of material behaviour during the forming process. For the estimator a quick blank representation can be achieved in minutes to highlight potential manufacturing problems, determine material costs and to streamline the production process.

For the toolmaker, the application is invaluable for identifying areas of a component that will require to be drawn as opposed to multiple forming operations.

3D Machining Strategy creates intelligent tool paths on the most complex 3D parts. Dedicated high speed milling techniques and built in smoothing algorithms create highly efficient NC code. Intelligent toolpaths reduce cycle times, improve productivity and continuously produce high quality components.


VISI can work directly with Parasolid, IGES, CATIA v4 & v5, Pro-E, UG, STEP, Solid Works, Solid Edge, ACIS, DXF, DWG, STL and VDA files. Our extensive range of translators ensures that users can work with data from any supplier.
