Founded in 1983, CNC Software, LLC (dba Mastercam) is one of the oldest companies in the PC-based CAD/CAM industry. The company was built on the concept of providing an inexpensive PC-based CAM system at a time when most other systems were expensive CAD-oriented products. CNC Software, LLC was one of the first companies to introduce CAD/CAM software, Mastercam, designed for both the machinist and the engineer. 

Today, Mastercam falls within under Sandvik Manufacturing and Machining Solutions. Our corporate headquarters and training facility is in a 53,000 sq. ft. environmentally-friendly building located in Tolland, Connecticut. We embrace remote work, with a growing global team spanning two continents: Europe and North America.  

The backbone of the Mastercam community is our global reseller network. With over 300,000 installations, Mastercam is the number one CAD/CAM software in the world. Mastercam Resellers have developed strong partnerships with our customers, offering advice, strategy, and experience to Mastercam users globally.  

Mastercam offers solutions for designers and NC programmers in a spectrum of industries, including milling, turning, wire EDM, router programming, plasma cutting, lasers, and 3D design and drafting. Our customers range from one-person job shops to Fortune 100 manufacturers. The same software that is utilized by corporations such as Boeing, IBM, and Sikorsky is still accessible to the small job shop. To ensure a new generation of trained metal and woodworking personnel, Mastercam is available to educational institutions at sizable discounts.

As the company and Mastercam continue to grow and expand into new markets and technology, our focus remains on our customers. We're committed to delivering tools that support the higher productivity and greater precision demanded by today's, and tomorrow's, manufacturing.

We help people solve manufacturing challenges, from the most basic to the extremely complex


Our Mission is to create software and services that solve the world's manufacturing challenges.

Our Vision is to drive innovation through our leading manufacturing ecosystem.


Engage in our mission.

We are all familiar with, and committed to, the company's mission.

Succeed as one team.

Achieving our mission requires positive, focused cooperation and commitment from everyone on the team.

Respect people and ideas.

Successful achievement of the company's mission would not be possible without our dedicated, passionate employees who all ensure we have a positive, open, and collaborative work environment.

Improve continuously.

We focus on continuous improvement as an outward expression of our individual learning and growth.

Make sustainable choices.

Sustainability is ingrained in the social fabric of the company and serves to support the methodology under which we operate.


As a company, we recognize the need for positive physical and mental health, and we encourage every employee to be active — to take time for themselves — and to ensure that they are able to recharge, as needed, while away from work. A healthier employee allows for more productivity and contributions while at work.  

We are pleased to offer our employees the benefits and services  expected of an industry leader. Some of our benefit offerings and perks include:

  • Medical Benefits
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Paid Time Off + Volunteer Day Off
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Recognition & Rewards Program
  • Tuition Reimbursement
  • Weekly Virtual Trivia
  • Onsite Gym / Virtual HIIT Fitness Classes


Mastercam is a growing, global team which spans two continents, with employees in Europe and North America. We are working actively to ensure that our employees can work, collaborate, and be productive from anywhere. We fully embrace remote work, and are committed to  providing the support, tools, and resources needed to enable us to achieve our mission of creating the CAD/CAM software and services that solve the world’s manufacturing challenges.

Our employee-centric culture is central to achieving our vision of driving innovation through our leading manufacturing ecosystem and is one of the reasons we are consistently voted as a Top Workplace. CNC  Software, LLC places a strong emphasis on being environmentally conscious — from a solar power  array that powers two-thirds of our headquarters, to geothermal heating and cooling that regulates the temperature throughout the building, to energy efficient LEDs.

Mastercam also promotes the wellbeing of employees by recognizing the need for work/life balance and the importance of our employee’s physical and mental health. Onsite, the company provides a gym, basketball court, racquetball court, and outdoor walking trail to support this effort, but regardless of whether our employees are on-site or off-site, all are encouraged to be active and take  time to recharge, whether that be during a lunch break or by utilizing our Paid Time Off benefit.

"I appreciate the family atmosphere and the fact that, despite the distance, everybody is working together as a team."

Social impact

At Mastercam, we know that we employ the “whole” person, and therefore, created the Volunteer Day program to encourage our employees to participate in volunteer activities. Employees may use their Volunteer Time Off to contribute their time and talents to recognized charities, causes or not-for-profit organizations, making a positive difference in their community.
