Cimatron E encompasses a set of powerful, easy-to-use 3D design tools.

In the design process, Cimatron E smoothly integrates tools to split part geometry, finds and implements engineering changes, creates electrodes and inserts, and details tooling components. During manufacturing, Cimatron E implements 2.5- to 5-axis toolpaths using high-speed machining, knowledge of stock remaining and templates to dramatically reduce programming and machining time.
