Detect & Eliminate Collisions, Surface Gouges & More with a High-Precision CNC Simulator
Compared to traditional APT-based simulation systems, which only simulate the planned tool-path, ICAM’s Virtual Machine® delivers for a more meaningful simulation, accurately recreating how the machine tool will react to the G-code generated by your post-processor.
The simulator provides a powerful validation method allowing users to determine the association between G-code and specific operations inside the NC program and allows for specific modifications to the CAD/CAM NC program depending on the simulation results.
Supports a Wide Range of CAD/CAM Systems
Virtual Machine® is built for complete compatibility with all major CAD/CAM systems like CATIA, NX CAM, creo & Mastercam. This flexibility allows the software to be quickly and easily integrated into your existing workflow with minimal implementation time.

Cutting-Edge Features to Meet the Biggest Machining Challenges
ICAM’s Virtual Machine® has helped countless manufacturers gain a competitive edge by reducing costly CNC machine collisions and repetitive shop-floor proofing of parts through its advanced set of features.
Complete Integration with CAM-POST® & More
Get even more efficient NC Code in less time by adopting the unique Adaptive Post-Processing technology. By running CNC simulation, tool-path optimization and post-process in one process, you can save 25% to 35% in programming and machining cycle time.
The CAM-POST platform is an advanced CNC post-processor builder that supports multi-axis machines and all major CAD/CAM Systems. Its flexibility allows it to generate efficient GCode for all CNC Machine-Controller pairs.
Looking to have a post-processor built for your machine? ICAM’s dedicated post-processors for CATIA, Mastercam, NX CAM & more are trusted by industry leaders worldwide to deliver substantial cost savings.
ICAM’s SmartPACK optimizes your NC Code by finding the most efficient path between two points, eliminating time-wasting air-cuts and providing automatic feed-rate adjustment based on changes in depth-of-cut.
A CNC Simulator with Real-World Savings
Virtual Machine® is designed from the gate to deliver substantial savings in NC programming time. By testing while you develop your post-processor, you can considerably cut down on the time you spend testing, modifying and retesting your CAM code.
” Before we purchased ICAM, programmers at C.E. Machine had to generate NCI through the CAM software, use a third party post-processing software to post, and then import all part, stock, and tool models into a separate verification software before programs could be sent to the shop floor. With the solution ICAM has provided, programmers now use a single software suite to do all of the above simultaneously. “
