- Mill Feature - Allows the user to assign certain machining attributes directly to part features. This allows users to save and reuse Knowledge Based Machining (KBM) information for best practice machining on families of parts. New parts and part changes are handled quickly and easily by a single mouse click.
- Lathe Threading/Thread Whirling - Users can now define lathe threads from any valid shape, including shapes that contain arcs or splines. Post processors can be upgraded to support native arc threads (G35 and G36) for a more efficient NC program.
- Surface Flow - Improved machining strategies for solids machining include an improved algorithm that smoothly handles most nonplanar fillets and other blended faces, resulting in better surface finish and more efficient NC code.
- Geometry Shape Combine- New functionality allows users to manipulate shapes that can be combined through Boolean operations such as union, subtraction, and intersection, trimmed, or broken into segments.
- Profiler modes- The Profiler now has increased functionality allowing users to slice spun bodies, silhouettes, and cylinders.
- Lathe Plunge Roughing- Improvements to Lathe Plunge Roughing result in toolpaths that remove more material in less time with improved tool wear.
- Drilling and Thread Milling Patterns- Users can now place Drilling and Thread Milling in patterns. Pre-mill drilling of patterned milling operations will pick up the pattern automatically.
- Pocketing Improvements- Several improvements to Pocketing continue to improve the efficiency of the program, including features such as "Outermost Shape As Boss" and improvements to mixed-shape pocketing with smarter entry and exit moves.
