The FastCAM® System has been designed to draw, nest and cut metal as simply and efficiently as possible. Ease of use is as important as the high levels of materials utilization and optimization the software provides.

The FastCAM® System includes the following modules:

  • FastCAM® Drawing Editor – View and edit CAM, DXF, DWG, NC1 & PDF files.
    Create CAM and DXF files.
  • FastNEST® Part nesting and NC code generation.
  • FastPATH™ Automatic tool pathing (reduces programming by 50%).
  • FastPLOT™ NC simulation and verification.

FastCAM® is more affordable and far less complex than other systems. Easy Editing & Verification of geometry combined with one step nesting makes the system instantly productive. FastCAM’s long experience in heavy plate fabrication makes the system ideal for even the largest construction jobs. The FastCAM® System is used successfully in Service Centers, Shipbuilding, Mining, Steel Fabrication, Metal Fabrication & Sign Cutting.


FastCAM® supports all combinations of machine and controller as well as ESSI, EIA and ISO NC languages in both inch and metric. NC output can be Absolute or Incremental.

Where drawing information exists electronically, FastCAM® has an extremely Powerful CAD interface that cleans and compresses code ready for quality cutting. FastCAM® Reads and/or Nests DXF, DWG, DSTV/NC1, StruCAD, IGES and PDF file formats.


  • Purpose built: Best Fit, Best Value for Metal Profilers and Fabricators.
  • Support for all additional machine processes; marking, text marking, drilling, multiple torches, multi-torch nesting, multi pass single torch bevel cutting and more.
  • Compatible with most popular cutting equipment and industry standard file formats.
  • DXF layer support for different processes.
  • CAD Tools allow you to import, extract, edit, clean and compress a range of popular digital files including PDF.
  • Integrated NC Verification & Code Editor debugs, checks code for collisions and provides Costing data.
  • Fast, single and auto pair arrays (including offset arrays) for same parts.
  • Nests into Remnant or scrap material and jostle feature super packs nests.
  • Pre-pierce option for better quality cuts and torch optimization as well as moveable pierce points.
  • Easy dynamic part rotation for fast manual optimization of nests.
  • HOLES: Small Hole, Medium Hole, Large Hole and Outside Contour Distinctions for using different Feedrates and different M-codes. Small hole option allows for variations in cutting speed & hole avoidance produce nests that can be run unattended. Multi stage corner and hole size deceleration and acceleration in NC output option improves cut quality on corners and small holes.
  • Automatic Kerf compensation.
  • Common Cut Nesting & Post nest optimization including Bridging, Tabbing, Chain Cutting & Stitch Cutting.
  • EdgeSmart™ (Patented) improvements – Option to allow for starting on the edge of the material to begin the cutting process. By avoiding long pre-heat times especially on heavy materials productivity increases dramatically.
  • Multiple languages: Select at the time of installation: English, Chinese, Czech, French, German, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish. User manuals can be downloaded via our Forum for English, Spanish, German, Polish, Chinese and Russian.
