Tailor made for CNC production, EnRoute DESIGN software for CAD CAM drawing simplifies your workflow and increases your productivity with intuitive tools that make drawing simpler and save design time.

A blend of artistic and precision drawing tools coupled with an extraordinary toolpath engine makes EnRoute the ideal CAD/CAM software for 2D and 3D design.

EnRoute DESIGN tools allow for the easy creation and editing of text, shapes, contours, and textures for all types of applications. A powerful vectorization engine creates clean, cut-ready lines and contours with precision and speed.

2D / 3D Drawing & Design

EnRoute DESIGN’s combination of precise and artistic drawing tools makes creating one-of-a-kind designs a breeze. Use its user-friendly drawing and editing tools to quickly and easily draw exactly what you need. Or use its creative design capabilities to create 3D meshes and reliefs, interesting textures and so much more.

To make things even simpler, use EnRoute’s Geometry Creation Wizards to automatically generate common objects and shapes.

Effortless Rapid Texture

With EnRoute’s best-in-class toolpathing, users can process a number of parts with very little time and effort. It doesn’t get easier when using EnRoute to import, toolpath, nest, and output.

Intuitive Nesting to Save Money

EnRoute DESIGN’s intuitive nesting algorithm arranges parts on the plate to maximize material utilization.

Let EnRoute figure out the ideal arrangement, prioritize the order by part, or use Dynamic Nest to click and drag specific parts onto the plate and EnRoute will rotate and fit them in to save you material, and therefore, money.

One-Click Parametric Textures

Save time on your CAD CAM designs with EnRoute’s texture templates or use simple customization settings to use them as a starting point to create one-of-a-kind textures with ease.

Add custom textures to your templates to save them for future use.
