Why Zel X Standard?

Zel X Standard is affordable, browser-based software that makes it easier to handle quotes, manage jobs, make parts and share information. Zel X Standard can be used as a complete solution or integrated with existing CAD and CAM tools.

With 500 GB of included storage plus an additional 5 GB per license, pooled across your team, you can share even the largest files from anywhere, securely. And browser-based access means that you can use your existing hardware—including Windows PCs, Chromebooks, MacBooks, iPads, Androids, iPhones and tablets. Get your team up to speed immediately, without spending precious budget on infrastructure or IT support.

Leverage 3D CAD modeling for accurate quoting and fixture design

Quickly create designs, modify existing models, and make changes to proposals, with easy-to-use CAD tools matched to your abilities. Use imported data from your customer or existing CAD system.

Plan, execute, track and communicate shop operations

Get a clear view of manufacturing tasks, both at the operator work-list level and status across the shop floor.

Spend less time programming and more time machining

With model-based CAM you reduce manufacturing errors without slowing down production.
