Autodesk FeatureCAM

Faster manufacturing using automated CAD software for CNC programming

Autodesk FeatureCAM

Autodesk FeatureCAM is feature editing software for process optimization from design to final NC code. 

Faster Manufacturing Using Automated CAD Software for CNC Programming

Use Autodesk FeatureCAM to minimize programming effort and increase the quality of CNC applications for 3- to 5-axis machines (e.g. lathes and milling machines).  FeatureCAM speeds up CNC programming via automated CAM software. The result is faster and better manufacturing.

Areas of Application

Use Autodesk FeatureCAM to automate CNC programming. Find out more about it.

Minimize Programming Times

Speed up CNC programming to provide more flexibility to handle new jobs and more time to meet delivery deadlines.

Standardize Processes

Standardize CNC processes and guarantee consistent customer quality with increasingly shorter delivery times.  

Reduce Costs

FeatureCAM reduces costs, giving more scope to invest in additional capacity.

Product Features

Autodesk FeatureCAM speeds up CNC programming via automated CAM software. The result is faster manufacturing. Find out more about the different functions. 

Automated CNC Programming

Reduce programming time with automated CNC programming and feature recognition. FeatureCAM can help with tool selection and much more to ensure consistent programming.

Simulation and Safety

Use automated collision avoidance to prevent collisions and machine downtimes. 

CNC Machining Applications

Configure and improve the functions of 3-, 4- and 5-axis CNC mills and lathes. Use automatic tool assignment and advanced synchronization and simulate material movements on sliding headstock automatic lathes.


Autodesk FeatureCAM speeds up manufacturing by using CAD software to automate CNC programming. Find out more about its benefits.

Reduce Processing Times

Use the included optimization tools to reduce CNC machining times long-term.

Use Different Machines

FeatureCAM is designed to meet a range of programming needs. The software can be used in 3- to 5-axis milling machines, multitasking turning centers, sliding headstock lathes, wire EDM and other machines. 

Damage and Collision-free Toolpaths

Avoid damage and collisions in CNC production from the outset. FeatureCAM uses automatic collision avoidance and visualized simulations to enable unsupervised manufacturing.

Increase Production Capacities

Use FeatureCAM to increase manufacturing capacity. Reduced programming effort provides the quickest path to go from CAD design to the finished part.
