USA – CNC Software, developers of Mastercam CAD/CAM software headquartered in Tolland, USA, is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.

Founded by two brothers, Mark and Jack Summers came up with a new concept for programming CNC machine tools back in 1983. Soon after another brother, Brian, came on board, they developed a PC-based CAD/CAM software package together, which laid the foundation for what would be Mastercam. Mastercam, according to CIM-Data, a leading independent global strategic management consulting and research company focused on the PLM market, is the world’s most widely used CAD/CAM software. CNC Software says Mastercam had closed in on almost a quarter million installations at the end of 2017.

Looking back, Chairman Mark says: “It started out as a simple idea. I was a machinist, while my brother was a mathematician. We combined our experience to put what was out of reach for most shops – NC programming software – right onto their desktops.” In the time that followed, the company had advanced dozens of important new technologies for those shops, including “smart” toolpaths, hybrid machining, mill-turn, multiaxis, CNC Software's Dynamic Motion technology, as well as basic packages for milling, turning and wire EDM.

The company attributes its CAD/CAM development and success also to valuable feedback from the industry. In addition to serving manufacturers, CNC Software has been focused on selling and supporting Mastercam in the education sector since its inception.
