Autodesk PowerMill Post Processor

CAMplete TruePath software offers more than just serving as a PowerMill Post processor. TruePath’s software suite also includes verification and simulation tools dedicated to 5-axis machining centers. The versatile and flexible software package offers the end user everything needed to analyze and simulate multi-axis tool paths in a 3D environment.

Since 1982, Autodesk has grown into a multinational software company spanning across a wide range of industries. Powermill is the fourth CAM system from Autodesk compatible with CAMplete TruePath. Autodesk makes software for people who make things, whether its architecture, engineering, or manufacturing, Autodesk has a software for you.

Today’s parts are more complex than ever, often containing features and details that cannot be produced using 3-axis milling alone. As part complexity has increased so have the demands on CAM software to create safe and reliable milling programs. Autodesk PowerMill provides tools to make efficient 5-axis milling a reality.

PowerMILL is a 3D CAM solution that runs on Microsoft Windows for the programming of tool paths for 2 to 5 axis CNC Milling machines. The software can be used in a range of different engineering industries to determine optimal tool paths to reduce time and manufacturing costs as well as reduce tool loads and produce smooth surface finishes. More than 15,000 organizations use PowerMILL worldwide.

TruePath bridges the gap between PowerMILL and your milling machine. Collision detection and material removal simulation takes the guess work out of the process by providing an accurate representation of what will happen on the machine.

With the TruePath and Powermill plug-in users can easily export the Geometry files, Tooling Database and CL data. Users who are serious about 5-Axis machining can trust TruePath and Powermill to get them to their machine safely and efficiently.


You can come into PowerMill, run it through TruePath with a click, and get complete confidence – Justin Ferguson, Applications Engineer at Autodesk

We are loving the CAMplete product, it is a very reliable output of the code, when we see something in TruePath, we can trust that the machine is not going to crash - Angelo Juras, Product Management Team at Autodesk
