    OEM-endorsed ESPRIT drives machine tools in over 15,000 shops across the globe. Comprehensive in its ability to handle today's most advanced machines, ESPRIT satisfies even the most demanding programmers and machining applications. ESPRIT is preferred by CNC programmers worldwide, in every advanced manufacturing sector− from medical to aerospace. ESPRIT is the right choice for programmers, manufacturers, and machinists looking to fully exploit their machine tool investment and enjoy the unparalleled freedom of advanced technology.

  • Program Any Machine Tool

    The high-performance ESPRIT system offers powerful programming for any CNC machine tool. ESPRIT's full-spectrum functionality includes programming for:

  • Machine Any Part Geometry

    ESPRIT’s seamless CAD to CAM interface directly imports any native part model from any source, fully intact, with no need for programmers to edit or rebuild geometry. Starting with 100% complete and accurate part geometry eliminates nearly all of the difficulty in programming complicated parts and dramatically reduces programming time.

    Directly model or machine any part geometry powered by:

    Parasolid Solid Modeler

    ACIS Solid Modeler

    NURBS Surface Modeler

    STL Modeler

    SD/3D wire frame modeler

    Drawing, dimensioning, and annotation

    Out of the box, ESPRIT reads data from the following native formats:

    ACIS (SAT)
