WorkNC is best of breed, complementary CAM software that enhances all design and manufacturing systems by providing the most reliable, efficient, easy-to-program cutter paths, resulting in unmatched productivity and safety. The automatic features of WorkNC allow novice CAM operators to automatically set up toolpaths in just a few minutes. Experienced users of other CAM software quickly appreciate the profitable and unique benefits WorkNC provides. Used either directly on the shop floor or in your CAD room, the reliability and quality of WorkNC's CNC programming are unsurpassed! Automatic CAD CAM for 2 to 5 axis TRANSFORM YOUR SHOP’S EFFICIENCY WITH V21! WorkNC V21 is the latest release of WorkNC and the first release to support task threading and parallel processes on multi-core processors. What does this mean for WorkNC users?..... * Task Threading: certain cutterpaths will now run multiple threads. That means individual portions of the cutterpath will be calculated at the same time. Computers with multi-core processors will run those threads individually, on separate cores, decreasing calculation times. It is not just cutterpaths that can be multi threaded, but other calculations as well. For example, Auto 5 will be able to take advantage of this technology for faster calculations. * Parallel Processes: multiple cutterpaths in the workzone can be run simultaneously, as long as one is not dependant on another. For example, a Planar Finishing can run at the same time as a Z-Level Finish, since one is not dependant on the other. However, a Global ReRough may need to wait on a stock model update before calculations start. Parallel processing will allow you to calculate more cutterpaths faster than ever before, taking advantage of your multi-core processors.
