In the Beginning
Founded in 1983, Mastercam is one of the oldest companies in the PC-based CAD/CAM industry. The company was built on the concept of providing an inexpensive PC-based CAM system at a time when most other systems were expensive CAD-oriented products. Mastercam was one of the first companies to introduce CAD/CAM software designed for both the machinist and the engineer, providing a practical solution to both markets. While the original version of Mastercam focused on two-dimensional (2D) CAM, it was also one of the first micro-based CAM packages to include CAD capabilities. With Mastercam, the engineer could construct parts quickly and easily as well as machine them at an affordable price.
Mastercam is the world leading CAM company with more than 300,000 software seats. Headquartered in Tolland, CT, Mastercam employs more than 270 employees and 450 resellers providing direct representation to our end users located in over 115 countries worldwide. This broad network provides our customers with a focused, worldwide team of consultative professionals and experienced product experts aligned in our mission to create software and services that solve the world’s manufacturing challenges.
