Autodesk Developer Network



ESPRIT is a high-performance computer-aided manufacturing system for a full range of machine tool applications. ESPRIT delivers powerful full-spectrum programming for 2–5 axis milling, 2–22 axis turning, 2–5 axis wire EDM, multitasking mill-turn machining, and B-axis machine tools.

ESPRIT provides users with ESPRIT FX™, which is the latest in advanced CAD to CAM feature exchange technology. Going beyond transferring just the part geometry, the FX™ technology provides portions of the original Autodesk® Inventor® software Feature Tree directly inside the ESPRIT user interface thereby including the complete original design intent – features, tolerances, material properties, surface finishes, administrative data, etc.

The ESPRIT CAM system reflects over 20 years of research and development, and ESPRIT’s partnerships with the world’s premiere machine tool builders confirm the leading position ESPRIT has earned in the CAM software market. CNC programmers in every manufacturing sector, from medical to aerospace, rely on ESPRIT to meet their demanding machine tool programming requirements.


  • ESPRIT provides seamless transitions between the design features of Autodesk Inventor to the programming features of ESPRIT.
  • ESPRIT users can import their part design with the push of a button. This means direct exchange of design models from Autodesk Inventor into ESPRIT, eliminating translation. Within ESPRIT, all machining is performed directly on the solid model as designed, assuring integrity of the final part.
  • ESPRIT's adaptive connection to Autodesk Inventor means any changes in the Autodesk Inventor model are reflected inside ESPRIT and the G-code program.
