MachineWorks offers a software development toolkit that is ideally suited for complex simulation, verification and clash detection for any type of CNC machining.

Our unique suite of geometric engines gives complete flexibilty and seamless integration to the host application.


  • Collision avoidance systems
  • True swept volumes
  • Multithreaded algorithms

Gouge Detection

MachineWorks detects gouges and undercuts to report any discrepancies between the design part and the cut part. MachineWorks also has the ability to deliver accurate inspection based on picking the true surfaces of swept volumes.

Gouge Detection

Clash Detection

MachineWorks provides complete collision and gouge detection in arbitrarily complex machining environments. All collision detection is based on true sweeps of solids to guarantee that collisions are not missed. Collision detection against the stock is always accurate since MachineWorks maintains an up-to-date model of the stock throughout a simulation.

MachineWorks also provides a range of tools to allow collisions to be examined visually as a first step towards correcting a toolpath, and can use soft clash tolerances to detect near misses as well as genuine collisions.

Thread Safety

Our API calls allow users to take full advantage of multiple core architectures in multi-core PCs and multi-core CNC controllers.

MachineWorks libraries are thread-safe for all likely usage scenarios. Users can also exploit the benefits of multiple core machines by internally multithreading algorithms and running multiple simulations simultaneously.
