Techne CAD/CAM for Windows 10 - Full description

A Windows only 2.5D CAD CAM application. The user experience tightly integrates the CAM aspects when doing design and layout. The target users will layout their design and then immediately generate CNC code.

The goal is a design application closer to Adobe Illustrator than to AutoCAD. The user specifies machining aspects during object creation so that when the design/layout phase is completed the toolpath generation can occur automatically.

What is 2.5D? Objects created are flat (2D) but have a depth component. So you can create a square that will be machined at a specific depth but the depth will be constant accross the square.

It is not/does not:
A general purpose CAD (AutoCAD) type program.
Support reference dimension on the drawing.
Export or import major CAD file formats.
