Kipware® conversational is the PREMIER conversational CNC programming software on the market. Our Clients include Fortune 500 companies … Industry Leaders and Pioneers. 

Kipware software is innovative and groundbreaking CNC and machine shop software.

Kipware® is DIFFERENT

Kipware® conversational lathe CAM software uses simple fill-in-the-blank forms to create powerful G code / CNC programs that include “best programming practice” outputs like canned cycles, cutter compensation and more.

No drawing, CAD or G code programming experience is required to create powerful G code programs with Kipware® conversational CAM.

Unlike conversational CNC controls … Kipware® conversational CNC programming software is NOT LOCKED to the machine. Kipware® conversational CNC lathe software is the ultimate in portability and allows users to program multiple machines with just one Kipware® conversational package.

Unlike simplistic wizards, Kipware® conversational creates REAL G code programs that can contain multiple operations with powerful shop floor features like canned cycles, cutter compensation and more.

Kipware SketchPad CAD/CAM application is the easiest CAD/CAM application on the market.

In addition … if you need to program non-standard shapes, Kipware® conversational includes the Kipware® SketchPad.

Draw directly in the SketchPad or import DXF files from a CAD program and create efficient G code programs for those shapes. It’s easy to create BOTH roughing and finishing toolpaths in the SketchPad.

And the SketchPad includes our patent-pending Machinist Mode. In the Machinist Mode users can simply move the mouse as if it was the tool and create  roughing toolpaths on the fly. Super simple and efficient … anyone can create powerful toolpaths the way you want to machine.

Kipware® VS. Conversational CNC Controls

WHO Uses Kipware?

Kipware G CODE CONVERSION software makes all your shop florr CNC machines operate seamlessly.
