CIM-Tech CNC Router Software Nesting CIM-Tech has been a pioneer of nested-based manufacturing and knowledge-based programming software for nearly 30 years, serving a host of industries including woodworking, aerospace, marine and plastics. CIM-Tech’s Router-CIM Automation Suite is a complete CNC machine programming package, combining Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) features with the power of AutoCAD Computer Aided Design (CAD) software.

With Router-CIM Automation Suite, CAD/ CAM programming software parts can be designed directly, or be received as industry- standard CAD drawings from others. The information flows through the Router- CIM Automation Suite software to create machine-ready production information for a complete, affordable software production solution. Router-CIM Automation Suite can run inside the latest version of AutoCAD, and is also compatible with AutoCAD 2012 and 2013.

CIM-Tech’s Solid-CIM 3D, a winner of the IWF Challenger’s Award in 2012, is a solution for analyzing 3D solid parts and assemblies from AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor and many other solid modeling products. Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) works directly on 3D solids and 3D solid assemblies to lay parts, identify machine operations and create a cutlist of all parts, materials and quantities, providing seamless integration with Router-CIM Automation Suite software. Solid-CIM 3D and Router-CIM Automation Suite will turn 3D solid models and assemblies into machine-ready NC Code for any CNC machine with the click of a button.
