SURFCAM gives the production manufacturer incredible functionality
Among other features, SURFCAM offers: TrueMill® High Speed Milling, 4/5 Axis Indexing,
Function-Specific Operations, and Milling/Turning
TrueMill is a patented toolpath engine that has redefined high speed machining. It is the only
toolpath that intelligently manages tool load. Critical spikes and sudden changes in tool load that cause
cutters to break are eliminated.
TrueMill increases profits by maximizing Volume Removal Rates with your existing hardware, while extending
cutting tool life and lowering machine maintenance costs.

Construction View machining greatly simplifies the task of machining on multiple faces of a part. Whether
programming multiple setups on a 3-axis machine, or utilizing 4/5-axis machines for 3+2 milling, the active
construction view automatically sets the tool-axis orientation.
Leave your part in model space and easily machine in any orientation. There is no need to translate and /or rotate
your model to get it into “machine space.”
A powerful suite of “function specific” toolpaths automate most common operations, such as facing, milling O-ring
grooves, chamfering and rounding corners, and hole-making.
These common, everyday tasks can be very time consuming, often requiring manual calculations and multiple toolpaths.
SURFCAM’s function-specific toolpaths are highly automated. Generate a sophisticated, efficient toolpath that roughs and
finishes an O-ring groove, for example, including preparing an entry hole for a dovetail cutter, in seconds.
Integrated turning, facing, grooving, boring, threading and cut-off operations. Supports sub-spindle programming, live
tooling, canned cycles, gouge avoidance, polar interpolation, and more.
SURFCAM supports your multi-tasking machines including C-Axis, B-Axis, Sub Spindle, etc.
