Complex Manufacturing at a Higher Efficiency Rate with Autodesk FeatureCAM

Customer Challenge

Designcraft Manufacturing is a leader in CNC volume milling and turning for the Aerospace, Defense, and Medical industries. We specialize in producing precision products for our customers which include parts with extremely complex geometries and contouring. With over 40 years of operation under our belt, we realize the essential need for Autodesk FeatureCAM to maintain our ability to solve our customer’s needs effectively and efficiently. Autodesk FeatureCAM coupled with the technical support of our partners at NexGenCAM has given us the ability to stay an industry leader.

Project Goals

With the help of Autodesk solutions, a large goal at Designcraft is to make great parts in a faster and more efficient way every single day. Efficiency is the name of the game in our industry thus leveraging our Autodesk FeatureCAM software to program parts quickly and accurately is a must.


Autodesk FeatureCAM, from the beginning, was incredibly easy to install and begin leveraging. In addition, NexGenCAM has provided training that allows a new programmer, with a new seat of software, to be up and running parts within a week. NexGenCAM also provides a large library of continuing educational Best Practices classes which our programmers can have access to 24/7.

Business Outcome

Since adopting Autodesk FeatureCAM we have become better, faster, and more effective in our industry. As we grow and add programmers we can simply add a new license and within a couple of days be producing parts. We also can leverage NexGenCAM’s support ticketing system to receive fast technical support for any aspect of our software or post processors.


Autodesk FeatureCAM, along with the support from NexGenCAM, has elevated our ability to produce parts more efficiently while not losing the quality we are known for in the Aerospace and Medical industries.
