Founded in 1983, CNC Software, LLC 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, CNC Software, LLC falls under the Design & Planning Automation division within 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 three continents: Asia, 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.
