SURFCAM’s 3-Axis system delivers efficient, reliable toolpaths on the most complex surface geometry.
3-Axis high-speed machining strategies feature fast processing, minimal rapid motions, tapered tool
support and excellent surface finish.
Product highlights include:
- High-speed optimized finish strategies feature smooth, fluid toolpaths that eliminates abrupt changes in direction
- Associative toolpath to model geometry that tracks changes to the model and adjusts the toolpath
- Unbeatable surface finishes increase productivity by reducing secondary processes and makes hard-die milling more efficient

Other new and notable features in SURFCAM include:
- Solid Tool display — ensures realistic visualization of the tool motions when backplotting a toolpath
- Part and Surface Boundaries — creates various types of boundaries using the entire part or using a set of
selected faces. New boundary types include silhouette and the shallow areas boundaries
- Current CAD Interoperability — SURFCAM supports the most recent releases from SolidWorks®, Autodesk®, CATIA®, Pro/Engineer®, and UG® (NX) to ensure accurate data exchange
TrueMill is an important and significant step in the long history of machining. TrueMill is the name for a patented
set of discoveries centered on controlling tool engagement while machining a part of almost any type or material. TrueMill
works on all part shapes and never plows into a corner. TrueMill manages tool engagement to produce tool paths
far superior to anything on the market today.
TrueMill is the only toolpath engine that manages tool
engagement to significantly increase productivity (in some cases over 100%) and extend tool life for all materials.
