INTERCON Conversational CNC Part Programming software
Part programming has never been easier!  Fill in the blank style programming with our easy to use canned machining cycles, just enter the dimensions from your print OR use a DXF CAD file.
Whether you have a part sketched out on the back of a napkin or a professionally created CAD drawing you'll be able to quickly create part programs with INTERCON, CENTROID's part programming software. With INTERCON you can create part programs by simply entering the dimensions from your print OR by using a DXF file (CAD drawing). INTERCON is available for both Mills and Lathes.
  • Program parts right at the machine or at your desktop PC*
  • Use DXF CAD files* to create toolpath
  • -or- Input your dimensions directly from your print
  • INTERCON combines conversational with CAD
  • Very user friendly with a quick learning curve.
  • Powerful features usually only found on CAM systems
  • Creates Toolpath G codes automatically.
  • Shows your work as you go. See a Toolpath Graph at any point.
  • Help screens for all the common milling/turning cycles
  • Automatic pocket spiral cleanout creates roughing and finish passes automatically.
  • Fill in the blank Canned Cycles
  • Teach Mode, Geometry Math Help, Polar Coordinates
  • Most shops find Intercon is often the fastest way to make a part.

Irregular Pocket Cleanout with Island Avoidance.   Irregular Pocketing with Island Avoidance.

Now you can create parts with INTERCON that normally would have to be programmed offline with an expensive CAD/CAM system. This standard feature of INTERCON saves you the time of learning a complex CAD/CAM system and the expense of buying it.

SImply enter the dimensions of your part OR import a DXF CAD drawing* to define the pocket shape and islands to avoid. Answers a few questions like: How deep? How fast? What tool? What to leave for a finish pass etc.. and Intercon automatically generates roughing and finish passes! Instantly view a graph of your part while you are programming; allows you to make changes on the fly.
