Features

CNC programming software with feature recognition

FeatureCAM is CNC programming software. Feature recognition identifies and creates features automatically to reduce programming time. Visualise safe toolpaths with simulation.

Automated CNC programming

  • Programme parts faster

    Automate your workflow from design to NC code to help reduce programming time. (video: 1.16 min.)

  • Feature recognition

    Use feature recognition to scan, identify and create machinable features from your design. (video: 2.04 min.)

  • Built-in intelligence

    FeatureCAM can help to select your tools, stepover, stepdown and more, providing programming consistency.
    (video: 1.36 min.)

  • Programming control

    Standardise and produce the results you want with libraries, configurations and attributes. (video: 1.32 min.)

Simulation and safety

  • Collision avoidance

    Use collision avoidance to trim toolpaths, tilt tools and avoid selected regions of your model. (video: 1.40 min.)

  • Clamps and fixtures

    When programming parts, FeatureCAM updates toolpaths to help avoid collisions with workholding devices.

  • Stock models

    Monitor the amount of remaining stock to avoid fresh air cutting and potential collisions. (video: 1.51 min.)

  • Simulation and visualisation

    Avoid machine downtime. Highlight deviations between your programmed part and nominal design. (video: 1.16 min.)

CNC machining applications

  • CNC milling

    FeatureCAM supports 3-, 4- and 5-axis CNC mills with a range of configurations. (video: 2:21 min.)

  • CNC turning

    Features to enhance programming lathes include automatic corner rounding, part handling and more. (video: 1.23 min.)

  • Turn-mill centres

    Optimise CNC programmes for multitasking turn-mill centres to reduce cycle times. (video: 1.30 min.)

  • Swiss-type lathes

    Simulate sliding stock motion, use automatic tool mapping and get advanced synchronisation. (video: 1.41 min.)

  • Bar-fed mills

    Programme bar-fed mills, a type of mill-turn machine that combines continuous part production capabilities.

  • Wire EDM machines

    Programme 2- and 4-axis wire EDMs. Achieve a high surface quality with wire-specific strategies.

  • Comprehensive machine support

    Programme mills, mill-turns, lathes, turn-mills, Swiss lathes, bar-fed mills, wire EDMs and more.
