Advanced CAM Productivity for PowerMill®

Automation | Optimization | Training

New call-to-action


MAKE Productivity was designed by a team of certified CNC and CAD/CAM specialists to increase programming efficiency, and produce high-quality, repeatable outcomes by automating the workflow in PowerMill®

Our product provides training content, a suite of calculators and tools for daily programming, and endless capabilities for automating simple or complex, multi-axis manufacturing processes

Automate 90-100% of your complex finish programming using Make Productivity’s guided workflow

Custom automated processes must align with paired product level: PowerMill® Ultimate is required for simultaneous 5-axis programming and machine verification

Enhance your existing PowerMill® programming practices with “multi-project” tools

Optimize after-hours license use by creating a batch calculation queue for “lights-out” calculation of multiple projects

Boost your in-house training flexibility

MAKE Productivity offers a variety of digital learning modules and training tools available “on-demand” with every installation

“Machinist and Programming tool” of the month

MAKE Productivity offers a variety of calculators and tools designed to provide users with every resource for daily programming
