| Main capabilities
Data Translation Data Translation
CimatronE reliably imports and exports all standard CAD files and can also read and write native files of common CAD systems.
 Modeling for Tooling

Modeling and Assembly for Tooling
All aspects of CimatronE’s CAD system were developed with the mold maker in mind. From total freedom to interchange between solid, surface and wireframe operations, to an assembly environment built for tooling, CimatronE’s system is attuned to the needs of mold makers.

 Parting Application Parting Application
CimatronE provides purpose-built, automated features, analysis tools and dedicated surfacing functions that help you to quickly establish the parting line, and create the surfaces of the core, cavity, lifters and sliders that will shape the plastic.
 Mold Base Mold Base
CimatronE enables you to load an entire mold base plate set in just minutes utilizing standard and user-defined catalog parts
  Catalogs
In CimatronE, catalog parts are easy to incorporate into mold design. Choose from the large selection of built-in catalogs or create your own.
 Ejection systems Ejection systems design
CimatronE provides you with an applicative tool that allows you to  set up ejectors quickly and easily.
 Cooling systems Cooling system design
CimatronE provides you with specialized tools that simplify the creation of complex cooling systems.
 Runner Design Runner design
CimatronE provides you with specialized tools for the creation of runners.
 CimatronE BOM BOM + TOH
Produce a bill of materials with all information required for ordering materials. Additionally, present all the holes in a plate and their properties to simplify the drilling process when manufacturing.
 Drawing Drawing
Convert 3D designs into 2D drawings for customers, the shop floor, or engineers.
 CimatronE Analysis Tool Analysis Tools
CimatronE offers a wealth of analysis tools to help you build effective, machinable molds and to help you deal with changes.
 CimatronE _ ECO ECO
Dealing with last minute changes is an important part of the mold maker’s job. CimatronE includes dedicated tools that help you to adapt to changes at any stage of the game.
| The CimatronE advantage
