Swiss machining and production turning software

Manufacture small, precision parts at high volumes with Swiss machining. Use Fusion 360 with FeatureCAM software to unlock PartMaker and rapidly create highly accurate NC code for burr-free parts.

What is Swiss machining software?

Swiss machining software allows you to program your multi-axis and sliding headstock Swiss lathes easily. Swiss CAM software such as Autodesk PartMaker® (included in Fusion 360 with FeatureCAM) can produce CNC programs that drive main and sub-spindle machining operations. These can be used for turning, indexed and interpolated C-axis milling, Y-axis, and B-axis milling.

How do I use Swiss machining software?

Swiss machining software helps you quickly produce small, accurate parts through synchronous cutting on Swiss and multi-axis lathes. Visual synchronization in Autodesk PartMaker allows NC code to be created and optimized to maximize machine productivity.

Program Swiss and multi-axis lathes

Post processors allow CNC code to be exported to suit the unique capabilities of your specific machine tool. Autodesk PartMaker includes a library of proven, configurable post processors for Swiss and multi-axis lathes. Customize the NC output to suit your application with easy to use post processor edits.

Machine simulation for Swiss lathes

Verify and visualize your Swiss machining process with a digital twin of your specific lathe. Autodesk PartMaker includes machine simulation and collision checking of Swiss and multi-axis lathes from major machine manufacturers, including twin-spindle multi-toolpost machines.
