FeatureCAM Improved Programming Speed by 40%

Customer Challenge

Chips MFG is part of the dental division at Steris Corporation. Our company specializes in manufacturing dental and medical components. We have been using Autodesk PartMaker for over 13 years and we are very satisfied with it, but over the years our parts portfolio changed. We started to produce bigger and more complex parts. We needed a “boost”, a CAM system on steroids. Enter Autodesk FeatureCAM.

Project Goals

To become proficient in using FeatureCAM for processing parts on Mori Seiki vertical mills and Mori Seiki multi-spindle turn/mill machines.


NexGenCAM offered us intensive onsite training. In just three days, a NexGenCAM trainer was able to teach our engineering team all they needed to know about the software.

Business Outcome

We were impressed with the knowledge and expertise our NexGenCAM trainer had. Within such a short time, he made our team proficient in FeatureCAM.


We believe that with FeatureCAM, we will be able to provide our customers with more efficiently manufactured parts. Thanks to this software, we have improved our programming time by 40%. We know that we can always count on NexGenCAM’s support with all our needs.
