Autodesk® FeatureCAM® software automates your workflow from design to NC code. Reduce programming time, and produce consistent results for CNC milling, turning, and wire applications.
FeatureCAM is an integrated CAM system using the feature-based technology, in order to automatize machining. FeatureCAM is available in three versions. Standard, Premium and Ultimate.
The function will allow you to machine holes, pockets, boss and threads quickly.
2.5D milling is the basic function in FeatureCAM. It allows to read-in IGES / DXF / DWG formats. Dodatkowo umożliwia optymalizację posuwu oraz zaawansowaną weryfikację symulacji 3D (bryłową). In addition, it enables optimization of a feed and advanced verification of 3D (solid) simulation. It allows introduction of modifications of created features by tilting walls, chamfering edges or inserting roundings. All, using flat finger tools tipped with a sphere and torus tools. Additionally, it is possible to create templates of linear, circular, rectangular operations or operations in indicated points.
Function allowing quick and easy programming of all types of turned parts.
2-axis Turning in the FeatureCAM allows fully utilize capabilities of the centre lathes for faster and more effective production. FeatureCAM has large library of standardized threads, both metric and inch ones, which facilitate programming. Lathe operations are programmed in such a way as to eliminate the possibility of damaging already machined surfaces. FeatureCAM allows to fully use the unchanging machining cycles, thus reducing the program size and providing the shortest possible machining time.
Wire Electrical Discharge Machining
Function allowing to program WEDM machine tools.
Wire Electrical Discharge Machining function in FeatureCAM facilitates programming of 2- and 4-axis wire-cut EDM machines. Machining can be generated basing on solids or on 2D curves. Material base allows for automatic control of the selection of machining parameters. In addition, in the Electrical discharge machining module, there is a possibility to chose from different types of entering wire into the machined material. Different machining strategies are also available, e.g. allowing for cutting with bridging, and then complete cutting-off of a material.

The function allowing for continuous and 5-axis indexed machining.
5-axis milling allows for continuous and indexed control over machining in 5 axes, offering wide range of machining strategies which allow to program a multi-axis machine. Powerful tool to avoid collisions and to protect grooves ensures, that if any part of a tool or a holder interferes with a machined workpiece, the tool axis is set automatically. Smoothness of motion and elimination of a tool vibrations allows to effectively produce parts and to provide its best quality.
Advanced Turning with Milling
The function allowing to create parts, which require both turning and milling in one chucking.
Advanced Turning with Milling is a module allowing to operate mill-turn machines. It combines the abilities of Turning module and 2.5D Milling module. It allows to produce turnery parts with milled elements This function allows to control C and Y axes, generate milling operations on both the main spindle and on the counter spindle, to generate NC code with polar interlacing and without it.
SWISS type Machines
Control of heavy-duty SWISS type automatic lathes.
FeatureCAM software allows to tune the heavy-duty SWISS type automatic lathes Dedicated strategies of the SWISS provide many options for production and optimization of machining time, for both simple and complicated parts, taking into account abilities of the machine, available tooling as well as the production volumes.
