CNC Software Landscape 2024

London,  February 2024:  AMFG is excited to announce the release of our latest whitepaper, The CNC Software Landscape 2024, delving into the current landscape of CNC Machining Software, from Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM)and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) to Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). 

In the intricate world of CNC machining, software stands as the linchpin, harmonizing digital models with motors and tracks to shape designs into tangible products across various CNC machine types. The landscape, takes a comprehensive look at the CNC machining journey, highlighting four key stages: model creation, CAM toolpath preparation, simulation for validation, and execution via control software issuing G-code instructions to CNC machines.
