VisualCAM (Includes VisualCAD)


VisualCAM along with VisualCAD is MecSoft’s standalone CAD/CAM package that is considered the best valued CAD/CAM system on the market today. VisualCAD/CAM features MecSoft’s FREE and easy-to-use CAD program VisualCAD.

VisualCAM is MecSoft’s flagship CAM software product that addresses the CNC machining market needs with modules VisualMILL, VisualTURN, VisualNEST, and VisualART to address specific needs of various CNC manufacturing processes.






VisualMILL VisualTURN VisualNEST VisualART VisualMESH



While there are many different CAD/CAM products on the market today, we at MecSoft Corporation feel that our VisualCAD/CAM software is among the best! Why? Because VisualCAD/CAM includes some truly amazing features, some of which we even make available absolutely free to all users. The free VisualCAD program is a complete drawing package and host for MecSoft’s advanced Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) plug-in technology.

Plug-in Architecture

VisualCAD/CAM’s scalable and modular plug-in solutions enhance the CNC machining market as well as various related industries. With its educational modules, amateur users can become proficient in CAM technology. These modules include VisualMILL, VisualTURN, VisualMESH, VisualART, and VisualNEST, each accommodating a host of manufacturing needs and objectives.


The free VisualCAD program acts as the host platform for MecSoft’s CAM plug-ins. Using VisualCAD, you can conceptualize and create computer-aided design projects by utilizing the available 2D drawing and 3D design tools.

Perform 2D Detail Drawing

VisualCAD is a complete drafting package where you can perform detail drawing using the large selection of curve modeling tools available. Once complete you can also add dimensions, text and annotations to your drawings from a variety of linear, angular, radial and annotation tools. Fully functional Layer and Property managers are also available to help you organize your work and make quick editing of geometry dimensions and properties.

3D Surface and Solid Modeling

With VisualCAD you can also perform 3D surface modeling, mesh modeling and solid modeling tasks, each geometry type occupying its own tab on the ribbon bar of available commands. You can build surfaces from complex curve and profiles to create planar, extruded and revolved surfaces. You can also create 3D solids and mesh geometries and combine them to form more complex designs.

Construction Plane Modeling

VisualCAD is full of modeling aids to speed the selection and creation of geometry. For example, construction planes (also referred to as C-Planes) can be used to import, draw and model details anywhere on the 3D model. The C-Plane can be locked to any orthographic view, 3D face or coordinate location in 3D space. In the VisualCAD multi-viewport display, the C-Plane automatically snaps to the active viewport. For example, you can draw a profile in the front viewport and automatically extrude it into the right-side viewport. C-Planes can also be named, saved and recalled on demand.

Cut Start Point Control

Curve start points are a good example of how tools within the CAD program can drive and influence where tool path entry and cut motions begin. VisualCAD provides tools to visualize and edit the starting points of curves and polylines. You can also use tools available within the CAM plug-in to create pre-defined regions from curves or 3D face edges. These regions can then be modified to move start points, change directions, add bridge points and even automatically clone a region across all matching regions within the drawing or design.

The VisualCAD/CAM Difference

VisualCAD/CAM installs with a complete online help system for content sensitive help on every command and dialog. You can also download free exercise and companion guides that will help you get you productive with software quickly. VisualCAD also includes built-in geometry translators that allow you to open geometry files from many standard CAD systems, files and formats. Open it, draw it and machine it with VisualCAD/CAM!
