Third Wave Systems has developed several XChange interface packages for Siemens NX, Mastercam and CATIA. These interfaces were developed to streamline Production Module project setups so users  can quickly and efficiently optimize milling and turning toolpaths to achieve significant cycle time savings.

Production Module can import toolpaths from almost any CAM package, but the XChange interfaces make it easier to directly transfer information from NX, Mastercam or CATIA right into Production Module without having to manually go between the two software packages.


  • Achieve significant cycle time reductions of 20% or more on turning toolpaths and 25% or more on milling toolpaths
  • Save up to 75% in setup time
  • Improve tool life & part quality
  • Better CNC file management
  • Effortlessly make optimization part of your process
  • Faster onboarding of new users, resulting in a quicker return-on-investment
