Cenon CAM 3.9.0
Ammerbuch, 2009-06-08
  18 months of development and more than 50 considerable improvements - Version 3.9.0 of the Design- and Manufacturing Software Cenon is now available... and a lot has happened...
This release gives its users no less than three new trump cards in the hands.
  • Faster Machining and better Quality with Angular Approach
  • Relief Output of all elements with color shading
  • Optional: Automatic Machining via Camera+Targeting
All in all, the new release of Cenon CAM comes up with about 50 considerable improvements. With these, the already good quality of Cenon was able to take another leap ahead.

Angular Approach

Implemented in familiar Cenon-style, this feature is easy to use and needs only a single input field to set the approach angle. The approach is done by spiraling down along the contour of the path, without interruption and without changing the cutting speed unnecessarily. This results not only in faster machining, but also in more beautiful cuts, as ugly dipping marks disappear. Additionally the tool is unburdened and may stay longer. In the end this feature saves both, time and money !

Relief Output of Color Shadings

A practical alternative to the time-consuming 3-D design is the relief function of Cenon. Now, the relief can be used with all Color Shadings, also of vector graphics! Be it ornaments in furniture making, or beveling and tapering whereever needed, this relief-function can do more.


This new option accelerates the production of large lots in a spectacular way. The parts are roughly placed onto the machine, the vaccum is turned on, one marking is moved into view - Camera+Targeting does the rest. Now start the output and the machining fits perfectly transformed onto the work-piece. Very easy to use by three buttons only!
Applications are for example in sign-making the cutting of printed advertisement banners, and in industry the machining of screen-printed front-panels or membrane keyboards.
