Manufacturing Preparation

Preparation is half the battle

The add-ons from the manufacturing preparation category are specifically intended for optimal preparation of the CAD model for all subsequent NC processes in die, mold and model manufacturing. Faster, more reliable and more cost-effective processing. Depending on the requirement, these add-ons can be combined with add-ons from other categories such as NC Automation.

You can combine die surfaces and solid geometry in a single record set with the Exact Solid Preparation add-on. This is done using an automatic cutting function based on freely definable rules that provides all of the relevant results. The geometry is colored and placed on special layers for NC automation based on the specified structure rules. Recommended in conjunction with the Active Surface Preparation add-on. 


  • Fast, reliable preparation of small parts with parametrically defined design procedure
  • Shorter calculation times in NC programming with prepared geometry and reduced file sizes
  • Time-saving, automatic programming with structures such as layers and colors
  • Optimal machine utilization with Multiple and External Setup
  • High process reliability, thanks to the elimination of manual reworking
  • Shorter calculation times due to reduced milling areas


  • Cut solid geometry to form a complete component from casting with die surface geometry from die surface design
  • Automatic system for parametric, rule-based preparation
  • Trim any size surface areas to the size of the solid geometry
  • Automatically generate NC auxiliary elements such as fill surfaces, chamfer contours and overrun surfaces for tilted machining of contours and joints


  • Trim and coining steels and attachments in die manufacturing
  • Machining allowances in mold manufacturing
