Features

CNC programming software with feature recognition

FeatureCAM® CNC programming software includes feature recognition and automation tools 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 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.
    (video: 1.38 min.)

  • 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
