SmartCAM CAM Software Products

SmartCAM CAM Software Products

The SmartCAM CAM software product line consists of computer-aided manufacturing products for CNC Milling, Turning/Lathes, Fabrication and Wire EDM. Additionally SmartCAMcnc offers SmartCAM add-ons for CNC machine code editing and DNC communication to the CNC machines, native format data translators for Solidworks® and Autodesk® Inventor®, and software maintenance agreements that provide product updates, superior technical support and much more.

There is a SmartCAM solution for an enormous variety of CNC programming needs and budgets. For almost 30 years, SmartCAM applications have helped CNC Programmers reduce programming time, improve machining processes, and simply deliver your parts quicker and better. Is it time to see SmartCAM can do for you?

SmartCAM Milling Applications

SmartCAM Milling Applications create CNC programs for for a full range of parts from 2- and 2½-axis work (SmartCAM Production Milling®), to 3-axis, with 4- and 5-axis positioning, for molds, dies, and prototypes, including automated machining toolpath directly on a solid model that contains complex surfaces (SmartCAM Advanced Milling® and SmartCAM FreeForm Machining®).

SmartCAM Turning and Mill/Turn Applications

SmartCAM Turning Applications create highly efficient toolpath and CNC code for 2-axis lathes (SmartCAM Production Turning®) as well as 2- through 6-axis lathes and Mill/Turn Centers including automated machining toolpath directly on a solid model with prismatic surfaces (SmartCAM Advanced Turning®).

 

SmartCAM Advanced Fabrication

SmartCAM Advanced Fabrication™ creates optimized toolpath and code for a variety of CNC machines, including punches, burners, lasers, waterjets, punch/plasma, and punch/laser combinations. SmartCAM Advanced Fabrication helps you reduce scrap and improve your fabrication processes. (Click image for datasheet.)
