View and manipulate your 3D Models in Pathing CNC


StudioMill supports all major CAD software and utilises its own purpose built PathingCNC software to simulate and perform the modelling process. Supporting the industry standard .stl .dxf file formats PathingCNC software allows you to view and manipulate your CAD model in a virtual tooling environment and quickly and easily tailor the modelling process to suit your requirements. The software allows the more advanced user to exercise complete control over the modelling process, but also provides a degree of assistance to the novice user.

PathingCNC is compatible with Windows® XP /  Vista / 7
