Placing more power in your programming toolbox, the WORKNC 3X Positional License maintains ease of use while offering deeper functionality.

This license includes all of the time-saving features of the WORKNC 3X License, but is also able to generate seamless 3+2 toolpath. Designed to utilize multi-axis machinery, 3+2 toolpath incorporates 3-axis programs and additional axes created by locking a cutting tool into a tilted position. This view machining function can also be used to maximize your 3-axis machine when you need to unmount and reposition the job on the table.

Additional features of this license include the ability to create multiple machine contexts, as well as the use of 3D stock models automatically updated and saved at various points throughout the programming process.

Features at a glance:

  • • Ability to use all features of the WORKNC 3X License
  • • Ability to create multiple machine context
  • • 3+2 Machining
  • • 3D Stock Model


Going from art to part is easier than ever with the flexible, specialized features in WORKNC.

Balancing ease of use with functionality that delivers more power to the programmer, the WORKNC Full 3X License is designed to pack a punch.

Including the full lineup of 3D toolpaths available in WORKNC, this package includes job and, or, cutting preference-specific cycles that reduce programming time and improve part quality.

From complex 3D finishing capabilities down to automatic feature recognition, the full 3X license paves the way for significant gains on and off the shop floor.

Features at a glance:

  • • 3D Finishing
  • • Undercut remachining
  • • Plunge Roughing
  • • ISO Finishing

WORKNC Auto 5 is a truly unique and revolutionary innovation in the field of 5-Axis machining. Users can now automatically generate 5-Axis toolpaths based on existing 3-Axis toolpaths while taking into account the specific kinematics of the 5-Axis milling center selected.

WORKNC Auto 5 automatically generates collision free 5-Axis toolpaths from existing 3-Axis toolpaths. It enables the use of short, rigid cutters and allows more of the job to be finished in one setting, reducing the number of electrode burning operations required to finish a component.

Features at a glance:

  • • Efficient toolpath generation
  • • Auto 5: Automatic conversion of 3-Axis toolpaths to 5-Axis
  • • Complete simulation
  • • Specialized strategies for individual applications such as trimming, pocketing, blade and tube machining, impellers and laser cutting

  • WORKNC 5 Axis Module
  • WORKNC Robot Machining
  • WORKNC Designer

WORKNC brings the benefits of 5-Axis machining to all users by taking the complexity out of 5-Axis machining. WORKNC 5-Axis includes powerful, easy-to-use programming and integrated collision avoidance.

With WORKNC, 5-Axis programming is easy, safe and reliable allowing you to automatically generate 5-Axis toolpaths for the majority of your jobs.

Features at a glance:

  • • Efficient toolpath generation
  • • Easy toolpath preparation based on guide curveset, sections or surfaces.
  • • Complete simulation
  • • Specialized strategies for individual applications such as trimming, pocketing, blade and tube machining, impellers and laser cutting


WORKNC integrates the WORKNC Robot module for toolpath simulation and editing enabling the control of all types of robots. WORKNC Robot uses the full range of WORKNC toolpaths for machining operations, edge hardening, welding and polishing.

Features at a glance:

  • • Integrated module
  • • Management of all cell elements
