Basic CAM Software

Interactive nesting & tooling features optimize the performance of your machine.

ShopData Parts combines a powerful built-in drawing and importing feature, flexible automatic and interactive tooling and interactive nesting to give you the basic tools you need to process accurate parts.

DXF import & CAD drawing

Use ShopData for Windows' visual drawing tools to design the simplest or most complex of parts. Or import DXF files individually or in batches - they're automatically tooled, ready to nest and cut as parts!

With Windows' incredible technology you can easily drag & drop, copy, move, and rotate parts, or move lead-ins and lead-outs anywhere along the tool path or on the nested sheet. Work with multiple drawings simultaneously. Utilize dynamic zoom capability for ultimate precision in your drawings. Then automatically tool parts for multiple tools using SDS' innovative "layers" technology.

Interactive Nesting

Basic Works interactive nesting allows chain cutting, move & bump interactive nesting with mouse-controlled part rotation.

Dynamic Array

ShopData's exclusive "Dynamic Array" makes filling a sheet with parts, with a definable scrap border, a simple and easy process. Common line and chain cutting may then be utilized.

Powerful machine tool configuration

ShopData's Tool Edit module manages all of your tools and post processors. Many process parameters like kerf, lead-in/lead-out, feedrate, etc. can be controlled, automated, and integrated directly with the CNC file - while still allowing "on-the-fly" attribute changes when desired.

Programmable post processor
