Simple, yet powerful integrated CAD/CAM software for CNC Machines

Go from Drawing to Toolpath to Cutting all in one Integrated CAD/CAM/CNC Software

  • FlashCut CAD’s intuitive user  interface makes it simple to draw and edit any 2D and 2.5D shape
  • Simple import of any 2D drawing
  • Convert any bitmap image or photo into a toolpath (outline or centerline)
  • Advanced Boolean operations like welding multiple shapes into one
  • Shape library allows you to instantly draw and customize common shapes
  • DXF export for sharing drawings with other CAD programs
  • Fix tool finds and corrects CAD mistakes instantly
  • Easily bridge internal cut outs such as the center of an “O”

Our intuitive CAM Software creates accurate toolpaths instantly

  • FlashCut 2D and 3D CAM generates perfect toolpaths for plasma, oxyfuel waterjetlaser, or marking
  • Automatic generation and simple manipulation of lead-ins and lead-outs
  • Automatic generation of fixture tabs
  • Automatic kerf compensation
  • Simple import of DXF or DWG files
  • Sheet management for multiple sheets per job
  • Advanced true shape nesting includes nesting of multiple CAD or DXF files and multi-sheet nesting
  • Corner looping strategies for reducing dross in corners
  • Editable plasma and oxyfuel charts for many models from Hypertherm® and Thermal Dynamics® and other popular models takes the guesswork out of important cutting parameters like feedrate, kerf, cut height and voltage

There are many varieties of FlashCut CAD/CAM to suit your unique needs, budget or application. The chart below outlines the differences between  our Standard and Pro versions of the software. It also includes a-la-carte features that can be added to either the Standard or Pro editions for an additional fee.
