Techne CAD - CAM Beta FreewareTechne CAD/CAM is a software application whose purpose is to help you create, modify, analyse, and optimize CAD and CAM drawings. Although it comes packed with many editing tools, it sports a clean and straightforward layout. Techne CAD/CAM allows users to perform basic editing operations (cut, copy, paste, delete), set up the dimension, as well as add a name and comment. What’s more, you can activate the 3D mode, move or resize the selected objects, rotate and align the components to different angles, and pick the material from a preset list (e.g. wood, steel, aluminium). The working environment is pretty intuitive and eases the drawing process by offering quick access to different navigation buttons which let you zoom in or out, lock the selected objects so they cannot be modified, group cuts, and combine cuts using Boolean operations (addition and subtraction). Techne CAD/CAM comes packed with several drawing tools which give you the possibility to insert rectangles, ovals, circles, ellipses, rounded rectangles, polygons, and parallel lines. The application also features an optional background grid useful for aligning cuts and gauging the approximate sizes. Plus, you can work with multiple layers, copy the cuts to the Clipboard, flip and mirror the selected cuts, as well as embed text messages which can be customized in terms of font, size, and alignment. The tool provides very good image quality, and no errors showed up during our tests. It doesn’t stress the CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not burdened. To sum things up, Techne CAD/CAM bundles many useful tools for helping you carry out the drawing operations. Thanks to its straightforward layout, it is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
Techne CAD/CAM was designed as and accessible and user-friendly 2.5D CAD CAM utility. Techne CAD/CAM allows users to layout their design and generate CNC code as soon as their done. The user can define machine aspects during object creation so that when the design phase is completed the toolpath generation can occur automatically.
What’s New 
  • For non-pocket/non-filled cuts that have islands, previously the boundary would be machined first, then the islands. Now islands are machined first.
  • The initialization of the DirectX interface moved to OnCreate. Should prevent display of white screen with DirectX warning message briefly showing during startup.
  • The machine configuration option to use variable speed spindle was not storing choice
