SmartCAM Advanced Turning

SmartCAM Advanced Turning™ software creates efficient toolpath and CNC code for 2-through 6-axis lathes and mill/turn centers. Like all SmartCAM™ applications, it is designed to help you reduce your programming time and deliver your customer's parts quicker.




Supports a Broad Range of Machines

  • 2-Axis
  • 4-Axis
  • Live Tooling


Shorten Part Delivery Times
SmartCAM Production Turning provides comprehensive solutions that help you get jobs done faster and shorten part delivery times, including:

  • Fast, flexible toolpath geometry
  • Automatic roughing routines for linear, contour, and groove roughing.
  • Comprehensive threading support for inside and outside diameter, left- or right-hand, and straight or tapered threads.
  • Better organize your data using Containers, Show/Hide, improved Layer functions and View Filters.
  • Intelligent drilling cycles that create code or canned cycle output for drilling, tapping, boring or counterboring operations with minimum input.


Simplifies 4-Axis Turning

  • Automatically synchronizes tool motion for both turrets, yet lets you control timing.
  • Shows you merged tool motion as it will occur at the machine with feed rates represented in correct relation to one another.
  • Automatically creates balanced or pinch turning operations from a single profile and synchronizes tool motion.


Combine Mill/Turn Operations in a Single Model

  • Solid Model Pocket Roughing - Create milling pocket roughing toolpath on solids containing prismatic features.
  • Solid Model Profile Finishing - Create finish and multi-pass, semi-finishing milling toolpath from solids containing prismatic features.
  • Integrate C-axis operations with turning functions in a single machining model.
  • Support radial and axial live tool orientations, and Y-axis motion.
  • Support a full range of milling operations including milling, off-center and cross drilling, tapping, slotting, pocketing, and facing.

Capture Your Manufacturing Expertise

The Job Operation Planner is a unique SmartCAM function that helps you organize and store tooling and machining operations information so you can capture proven machining methods and reuse them.

Customization Almost everything about SmartCAM applications, from the user interface to the way code is output, can be customized to streamline your work. SmartCAM applications put you, not the computer, in control.



CAD Formats Supported

Import, export, display, and machine from solid, surface or wireframe CAD data using SAT, STEP, IGES, DXF or DWG formats. SmartCAM files may also be exported as STL surfaces.

Optional Native Data Translators

Additionally, individual native data translators are available for purchase that read SOLIDWORKS® .SLDPRT, Autodesk® Inventor® .IPT files, Solid Edge® .PAR and .PSM part files and ProE®/CREO® .PRT, .PRT. and .XPR files.



The SmartCAM Advantage

SmartCAM applications are the best value in the CAM marketplace. That means you get maximum return on your investment. And as your business grows, the SmartCAM family of applications for 2½-through 5-axis milling, 2- through 6-axis turning, 2- through 5-axis Wire EDM and fabrication will continue to meet your competitive needs.



DNC & Editing Software

Every license of SmartCAM now comes with Predator CNC Editor for SmartCAM™, an OEM version of the industry-leading standard version from Predator Software, Inc.

It is the most popular 32-bit CNC code editor available on the market, is extremely easy to use and includes many features to improve the day-to-day productivity of CNC machine tools. Predator CNC Editor for SmartCAM is the ideal choice for the CNC editing and DNC needs of all SmartCAM users.

Features include DNC in the background, Math Operations including trigonometry functions, Color Highlighting of the NC program and more.
