The ability to select the right cutting tool for a job is something that separates experienced CAD/CAM Programmers from beginners. But, experienced CAD/CAM Programmers and their apprentices have something in common that you may not expect: they are all doing it wrong, and maybe you are too.
Do you filter through paper catalogues and websites or call up manufacturer’s support to find the right tool?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then you may be due for an upgrade. You should be able to find the right tools for a job just like you can comparison shop for products on Google, and with the MachiningCloud app, you can.

Advanced fits-with and see-through technology narrows down your choices to those components that work well together, so you can:
- Reduce time to assemble the optimum combination of tool components – bodies, adapters, holders, insert, etc.
- Obtain feed & speed recommendations for your workpiece and assemblies
- View configured assemblies in 2D and 3D. 360 degree visibility of your new assembly allows you to clearly see fit and function.
MachiningCloud even provides 3D models and 2D drawings of tools for simulations. The app can simulate the exact tool in your particular software and shortcut the process of finding the optimum tool for your specific task improving programming accuracy and minimizing chances of collisions on your shop floor. Our tool recommendations mean less research, less down time due to collisions, and more options.
