Delcam FeatureCAM


Delcam FeatureCAM combines cutting edge technology with ease of use. With its first release in 1995, FeatureCAM introduced revolutionary feature-based technology. Since then, FeatureCAM has continued to provide powerful CAD/CAM options to streamline programming – including automatic feature recognition, knowledge-based machining and several importing and customization options.

With FeatureCAM, users simply draw or import a part, identify part components as features, click simulation, and NC code are generated. Knowledge-based technology increases productivity by automatically selecting tools, calculating feeds and speeds, and determining roughing and finishing operations. Users can easily change any of the suggested parameters.

FeatureCAM offers a broad range of importing options, including native Autodesk® Inventor® files. Users also receive several benefits at no additional cost – such as an extensive library of post processors, the ability to create custom posts and edit existing ones, feed rate optimization, and an integrated 3D simulation package.
