New FeatureCAM tools for 2018

Explore new and enhanced features to automate your workflow from design to NC code; reduce programming time; and produce consistent results for CNC milling, turning, and wire applications.

What’s new in FeatureCAM 2018

FeatureCAM® 2018 includes a new ribbon and workflow enhancements. Get better interoperability with third-party data, more automation to reduce programming time, and new technology for Swiss-type lathes.

  • UX design improvements

    Explore enhanced features to improve your user experience, including a new ribbon.
    (video: 2:50 min.)

  • Automatic angle for parallel finishing

    Let the software automatically determine the optimum angle for your toolpath, based on the region you are machining.
    (video: 48 sec.)

  • Automatic 3+2 positioning

    Use the axis limits of your machine tool to automatically determine the standard or alternate. (video: 50 sec.)

  • Spiral toolpath improvements

    Set an island curve for spiral-facing toolpaths to minimize fresh-air cutting.
    (video: 44 sec.)

  • Swiss synchronization

    Program and simulate advanced synchronization modes for Swiss-type lathes with superposition and double-ended drilling. (video: 1:00 min.)

  • PartMaker—laser machining

    Program laser cutting operations directly from within PartMaker. (video: 58 sec.)

  • PartMaker—keyway broaching

    PartMaker 2018 extends its existing broaching functionality with new keyway broaching. (video: 1:03 min.)

  • PartMaker—workflow improvements

    View and interact with 3D models in setup sheets, pause and rewind your toolpath verification and more. (video: 2:02 min.)
