Alphacam Router - Easy To Use Software For Programmming CNC Routers



Ease-of-use is just one of the reasons that Alphacam is the industry  standard and system of choice for programming CNC routers. Tooling  and machining techniques unique to this industry are accommodated  by Alphacam’s dedicated Router modules.

Aggregate Support

Horizontal aggregates for machining parts such as hinge reliefs and  lock mortices, are easy to control using Alphacam. Standard fixtures  can be created and saved within the system and inserted on to work  planes when required, providing significant time savings.

Planar Machining

Head mounted rotary axis on CNC routers can be programd at any  workplane. Aggregates with a programmable rotary axis and manual  tilt are fully supported, as well as routers with fully interpolating  5-axis heads. Safe rapid moves between planes are automatically  controlled and verified using advanced solid simulation. Alphacam’s  powerful post-processing ability means that the advanced  functionality of all CNC controllers is utilised, including plane rotation. 

3D Engraving

Artwork and text can be easily created and machined using  Alphacam’s powerful 3D engraving. This command contours  geometries with a form tool, and on meeting a sharp corner  automatically retracts the tool to produce a sharp corner, often  referred to as embossing.

3D Routing

Multiple 3D rough and finish machining strategies of Solids, surfaces  and even STL files are available within Alphacam. These strategies  can be applied to any work plane, allowing for 3 plus 2 machining to  be programd on machines with 4 and 5-axis rotary heads.  Alphacam’s  5-axis module is cable of 4 and 5-axis simultaneous  machining of surfaces and 3D trim curves, often used for finishing  chair backs.


Maximizing material utilization is made easy using Alphacam’s  automatic nesting functionality. Parts can be selected from the  screen  or a kit of parts, their orientation fixed (if grain direction  needs to be maintained) or rotated to any angle. Nesting supports  tool lead in/out, support tags for small parts and multiple depth parts  where an onion skin is required.

Geometry Constraint Manager

Using Alphacam’s Constraint Manager, geometry can be made  parametric, rules such as tangency can be applied between individual  elements, and variables such as distance set between them. By  changing the variables, the geometry is automatically resized and  resolved and because of the rules applied its integrity maintained.  This makes creation and subsequent machining of families of parts  very quick and easy.

Dedicated Drilling Unit

Using Alphacam’s Multi Drilling command toolpaths can be optimised  for any drill unit. Holes are matched to the drill diameters and  automatically machined; multiple drills are selected at the same time  when a standard 32mm pitch is matched.

Integrated CAD CAM

Alphacam is a completely integrated CAD CAM software solution with  advanced features. It is designed to offer your business enhanced  productivity, exceptional reliability and additional flexibility.

Alphacam’s ongoing program of development and enhancement  ensures it not only keeps pace with the changing needs of users  throughout the woodworking industry, but also delivers maximum  return on your CAM investment.

Alphacam also offers you the latest front end CAD part modelling  facilities via our solid modeller.

The Modules :

Alphacam Art 3D relief modelling and machining software for CNC  routing and engraving projects such as carving decorative ornate  panels and doors, swept flourishes, custom millwork, architectural  moldings, dimensional signage, bespoke company logos, jewellery  pieces, custom gifts and awards. Plus many more applications.

Alphacam Art’s 3D component construction tools make it easy to  work  with existing 3D models and to design your own 3D shapes.  Alphacam Art, is based on the world class VCarve Pro design engine  and uses the same logical and easy-to-use interface.

With Alphacam Art, users can quickly and easily convert 2D sketches,  photographs, drawings and graphic designs into unique high quality  3D carvings and designs.

Alphacam Essential The ideal entry level product for basic 2D CNC  work. This module offers the fundamental tools required for CAD CAM  production, including nesting of parts from the screen, and 3D  Engraving.

Alphacam Standard The perfect product for shops and  subcontractors. This module offers all the functionality of the  Essential  package with additional support for nesting of parts from a  nest list, horizontal machining, reusable machining data (Machining  Styles), and much more.

Alphacam Advanced Targeted at the manufacturer who works with  complex, free-form patterns and tools. In addition to the functionality  of the lower level modules, this module offers complex 3D machining  strategies, solid model importing and feature extraction, constrained  parametric part creation and much more. This module also  incorporates Microsoft’s Visual Basic for Applications and is suited for  those that can utilize Alphacam’s add-on or custom built applications  and automation tools.

Alphacam Ultimate Adds support for full 4/5-Axis simultaneous  machining for highspecification joinery and furniture manufacturers.
