WARDCAM is a powerful yet simple package for quickly turning DXF files into CNC code for the waterjet. WARDCAM removes the complexity of many CAD/CAM packages by utilizing context sensitive menus to walk you through the process. A “Fast Forward” button can be used to create CNC files from a DXF file with one click. You can quickly step forward or backward in the process at any time to fine tune settings and then continue from that point with the Fast Forward button. Lead-ins can be added automatically or manually. Cut qualities can be adjusted for entire or partial cuts. If your waterjet has accessories like 5-axis cutting, drilling, and tapping, these options can also be easily programmed.

Set your toolpath automatically without your tool crossing over any previously cut contours.
Any stray contour, open contours or points will remain the color gray. This is useful if you weren't able to see it before and need to delete it. In addition, it makes it easier for you to see open contours for marking slit cuts and etching.
Hide and reveal layers of your part. Easily hide guide marks or measurements from your original file. Hidden contours will not be cut.
Feed Rate Calculator in Material Database will adjust settings automatically based on machineability. You can also manually adjust all settings.
Custom bevel settings with a preview image so you can easily see what the bevel will look like.
The visual representation of your tool offset makes it easy for you to see exactly where you will cut which Allows you to see if your contour is too small for your tool to fit.
With the Material & Machine Databases, you have practically unlimited control over what materials and cutting systems your programming recognizes.
