Tool Settings
Tool setting is done in an easy to understand animated GUI. Tools can be set in manual mode or with an automatic tool setter for both X and Z axis.

Live Tool Programming
Live tool part programming with C axis is easy with canned cycles helping you fill in information. Tell the cycle the part diameter and it will wrap it around the part to create pockets, drilling, engraving, hexes and more.

Single Point Threading
Single point threading for ID or OD is easy to do with the graphical menus. All standard threads in inch or metric are pre-configured, plus you have the ability to create nonstandard threads in right hand or left hand.

3D Graphic Simulation
Standard 3D graphic simulation shows the part before it is cut. Part can be rotated and cut open to look inside to verify ID work. Cycle time based on speeds and feeds is also displayed.
