Automate manufacturing operations

Simplified model-based programming makes CAM accessible for designers and engineering personnel on any device. With the industry’s first integrated, web-based CAD+CAM toolset, Zel X automates 2.5-axis CAM operations with custom setup and toolpath simulation. Adapt to machining changes from anywhere with ability to adjust setups or edit G-code as plans change.

Share and collaborate from anywhere, on any device

Unite your entire supply chain around a single source of truth with secure cloud storage and data management. Collaborate with team members; colleagues, partners and customers with permission-based file sharing, CAD view/markup and unlimited guest access. Manage and track tasks with project dashboards and intuitive Kanban boards. Visualize designs in real-world environments with augmented reality (AR).

Accelerate design with AI-based modeling

Streamline 3D CAD modeling for quoting, manufacturing and fixture design with AI-predictive modeling and automated 2D drawing creation. Open/modify models from other CAD systems, including NX, Solid Edge, SolidWorks, Inventor, and Creo, or design your own part and assembly models using shape and part libraries. Create accurate models of sheet metal parts and assemblies, and export DXF profiles for manufacture.

Optimize designs with powerful simulation on any device

Validate material choices and mechanical performance early on with powerful simulation capabilities specifically for designers. Near-instant simulation of parts under various stresses enables simulation-driven design with visualization displayed on the 3D model. Cloud-based computing delivers rapid simulation results on your PC, MacBook, Chromebook, tablet or mobile device.
