Corporate Vision To drive innovation through our leading manufacturing ecosystem. Corporate Mission To create software and services that solve the world's manufacturing challenges. In the Beginning Founded in 1983, CNC Software is one of the oldest companies in the PC-based CAD/CAM industry. The company was built on the concept of providing an inexpensive PC-based CAM system at a time when most other systems were expensive CAD-oriented products. CNC Software was one of the first companies to introduce CAD/CAM software designed for both the machinist and the engineer, providing a practical solution to both markets. While the original version of Mastercam focused on two-dimensional (2D) CAM, it was also one of the first micro-based CAM packages to include CAD capabilities. With Mastercam, the engineer could construct his or her own parts quickly and easily as well as machine them, for an affordable price. CNC Software Today Today, the CNC Software, Inc. corporate headquarters and training facility is in a company-owned 53,000 sq. ft. environmentally friendly headquarters located in Tolland, Connecticut.  In addition to the 90+ employees located at our corporate facility, the company has another 100+ employees who work remotely for the Company across three continents. The real backbone of the Mastercam community is our global reseller network, with over 285,000 installations, Mastercam is the #1 CAD/CAM software in the world.  Some of these experts have been with CNC Software since the very beginning. They've helped build shops from the ground up, and have developed a true "partnership" with our customers, offering advice, strategy, and experience to Mastercam users around the world. Strengths and Stability As an industry leader for almost 40 years, CNC Software prides itself on meeting the demanding needs of its customers by providing excellent products at affordable prices. We adhere to our strategy of combining superior software programming with practical shop floor experience. We have remained at the forefront of CAD/CAM technology by listening to our customers' needs, being accessible, and most of all, being dedicated to our customers. Broad Market Reach with an Eye to the Future Mastercam offers solutions for designers and NC programmers in a spectrum of industries, including milling, turning, wire EDM, router programming, plasma cutting, lasers, and 3D design and drafting. CNC Software's customers range from one-person job shops to Fortune 100 manufacturers. The same software that is utilized by corporations such as Boeing, IBM, and Sikorsky is still affordable enough for the small job shop. To ensure a new generation of trained metal and woodworking personnel, Mastercam is available to educational institutions at sizable discounts.            As CNC Software, Inc. and its flagship Mastercam continue to grow and expand into new markets and technology, our focus remains on our customers.
