Intuitive and easy-to-use software

All Boxford’s computer controlled machines come with state-of-the-art CAD/ CAM software, capable of fulfilling a range of educational needs from the 11-year-old beginner, to more accomplished higher education or workplace trainee. The intuitive programming, which meets industry standards, enables students to either seamlessly process their creative work or build and practice their skills, building up their expertise and getting them ready for manufacturing in the real world. Designed to facilitate student learning progression through different user access levels.

  • Users who only require a creative outcome can simply design in CAD and manufacture their components with no  CNC programming knowledge. Design to manufacture in minutes.
  • Users new to programming can utilise ‘Conversational Programming’ for a process based learning experience.
  • Advanced programmers can use full G&M code writing and editing features to create or refine CNC programs to Industrial Standards. Syntax and tool collision errors are automatically trapped and must be corrected before the program can be run on the machine.

See first hand how the Boxford CADCAM Design Tools  software features provide a progressive learning experience allowing it to be used to fulfill a range of educational needs from 11 year old upwards through to FE Colleges, Universities and Industrial engineering training centres.
