  • Company Profile


    Mastercam Connecticut Facility

    CNC Software, Inc. is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art software tools for CAD/CAM manufacturing markets. Our goal is to provide superior software products based on our users' needs to solve simple to complex design and machining problems. In addition to providing the software, it is also our goal to provide exceptional service and support to our customers. Founded in 1984, CNC Software is one of the oldest companies in the PC-based CAD/CAM industry. The company was built on the concept of providing an inexpensive PC-based CAM system at a time when most other systems were expensive CAD oriented products. CNC Software was one of the first companies to introduce CAD/CAM software designed for the machinist and the engineer, providing a practical solution to both markets. The original version of Mastercam was founded in two-dimensional (2D) CAM. Mastercam was one of the first micro-based CAM packages to include CAD capabilities which allowed the user to construct his or her own parts quickly and easily. Shortly after CNC Software got its start in Massachusetts, the company moved its base of operation to an office in Vernon, Connecticut. Today, the CNC Software corporate headquarters and training facility is located in a company- owned 40,000 sq. ft. building in Tolland, Connecticut, midway between Boston and New York City. In addition to over 85 employees working at the corporate facility, CNC Software also has an office in the state of Washington dedicated to the educational market. The real backbone of the 80,000 installation-strong Mastercam community is our global dealer network. Some of these experts have been with CNC Software since the very beginning. They’ve helped build shops from the ground up, and have a true “partnership” with our customers, offering advice, strategy and experience to Mastercam users around the world. As an industry leader for over fifteen years, CNC Software prides itself on meeting the demanding needs of its customers by providing excellent products at affordable prices. We stick to our strategy of combining the best software programming with practical shop floor experience. We have remained at the forefront of CAD/CAM technology by listening to our customers' needs, being accessible, and most of all, being dedicated to them. CNC Software has provided CAD/CAM solutions to over 80,000 installations worldwide in mold making, automotive, aerospace, and consumer industries.
