Ground-Breaking Conversational 3D Programming In Action

In 2013 … Kentech Inc. released it’s ground-breaking and innovative 3D conversational programming for milling in KipwareM®. This release established Kipware® conversational as THE premier conversational CNC programming software … whether PC based on machine control based. This conversational 3D option IS THE ONLY CONVERSATIONAL 3D PROGRAMMING IN THE MARKET … IN THE WORLD !!

In the video below … we illustrate the program of an 18″ radius curved surface  on a workpiece that is 8″ wide and 25″ long.


This complex machining G code is created in the video IN LESS THAN 3 MINUTES !!


We invite you to get a taste for the best and watch our ground breaking, innovative 3D conversational in the video linked below.

Groundbreaking KipwareM® Conversational 3D In Action

We love getting REAL WORLD input, comments and results from our clients … and we got one this morning that really rocked.

We released our groundbreaking and cutting edge conversational 3D programming ( BTW Kipware® is the ONLY conversational CNC programming software in the world with this option … Who writes your CNC software? ) in September of 2013 and have added quite a few new menus since that date based on user requests and feedback. Last June we received a request to create a conversational 3D menu to created roughing and finishing G code for bending dies … male and female. We immediately thought that that would be an option a lot of clients might find useful and time saving … so we got to work. We released the male menu not long after the June request and in August released the female menu. Our client has told us the male program worked great and today we got confirmation with some pics of an incredible female die created with the female menu. I’ll let the client’s words speak for themselves … this is his email message :

We cut our first bottom break die with your program and it worked just as planned. It is a big time saver for our tool room. It took less than 5 minutes to write the program. I want to thank you and your team for doing this. The die was over 24 inches long.

Thank You,
Dan Sinnett


That would have been a LOT of work to machine manually !!

Here’s a quick peak at the simple, fill-in-the-blank KipwareM® form used to create the cutting program :

Conversational 3D CNC Machining with KipwareM®

Kentech Inc. continues to turn the conversational CNC programming software world on it’s head releasing unprecedented and powerful fill-in-the-blank programming options for it’s Kipware® conversational CNC programming software for milling and turning.

In late April, the most powerful and easy-to-use conversational TURNING and BORING menus hit the market for KipwareT® – Conversational CNC Software for Turning … bringing unprecedented ease of programming for complex shapes that can include unlimited and unbounded radii and tapers. The success has been unbelievable … thank you to all the professional machinists that have added true, powerful conversational CNC programming to their arsenals for their turning programming.

In 2014 Kentech Inc. released it’s ground-breaking conversational 3D options for KipwareM® – Conversational CNC Programming Software for Milling … the ONLY conversational 3D programming ON THE MARKET …. whether PC based or CNC control based !! In June … responding to a request from one of our clients … we created and added an option to create a bending die 3D menu. Using a simple fill-in-the-blank form,  users can create the G code to ROUGH and / or FINISH the MALE BENDING DIE using a 3D machining toolpath.

We are pleased to announce today the release of the FEMALE BENDING DIE option as the companion to the MALE DIE. Using the same powerful options and features as the MALE menu … users can create the G code program for the FEMALE side using only the simple, efficient fill-in-the-blank form as illustrated below.

As You can see from the screenshot … we have also included powerful programming options in this menu as well … just as in the MALE side menu. Options such as :

  • The ability to use EITHER a square OR ball end mill with the software automatically calculating all tangency points as well as the allowable depth to machine to insure the square end mill will not over-machine along the bottom radius.
  • The ability to ROUGH and / or FINISH in one or separate operations.
  • The ability to CONVENTIONAL and / or CLIMB mill for EITHER roughing or finishing operations.
