CNC Software, developer of Mastercam software, is part of the development team for Oracle Team USA, which is a participant in the 35th America’s Cup being held in Bermuda in 2017. Oracle Team USA is defending champion of the America’s Cup.

Mastercam software is being used by Core Builders Composites (CBC), which produces the carbon fiber components used in the construction of the Oracle Team USA’s racing yachts. The company has built all of the team’s yachts, including the trimaran that won the 34th America’s Cup.

Part designs originate with the Oracle team and are sent to CBC for production. Mastercam software is the bridge between the CAD file and the CNC machine tool, creating the necessary tool path to produce the part. These parts are produced by CBC on a five-axis machining center with a workpiece capacity of 59 ft. by 20 ft. by 10 ft.
