Picture of Pier 9 CNC Tool Library
A tool library with proven speeds, feeds, and depth of cut greatly simplifies the machining process.  Import the tool library into Autodesk CAM 360, Autodesk Inventor HSM or FeatureCAM and you are ready to use the amazing CNC machines at Pier 9.  I wish I had something like this when I was learning to use CNC machines!

Download Pier 9 CNC Tool Library

Download Autodesk CAM 360 and Inventor HSM

Download FeatureCAM

Download FeatureCAM, ArtCAM Pro, PartMaker, PowerMILL, & PowerSHAPE from Autodesk Pier 9 Network
  • This requires special sauce: please contact network admin Tim Young (first.last@autodesk.com) or talk with Shop Staff.
  • Once you have access to Autodesk Pier 9 Network
    • Install software by running executable file in the network folder or copy .zip file to your machine.
    • Enable the network license by copying dcam.flx file to C:\dcam\config\pass
    • Run ArtCAM 2013 (RMS) (64-bit)
Post-Processors
  • The latest post-processors for each machine are on the network drive in the 'CNC Data' folder.
Learn CAM software and machining FeatureCAM Training Videos
  • Training videos for FeatureCAM are stored on the Pier 9 Z-share drive.  Copy the folder "FeatureCAM Training" to your hard drive - FYI the file is 11.9 GB.  
  • It's easier to view these training files using FeatureCAM's built-in browser, so you'll need to update the Browser file in the File Options menu.
    • Here's how you do it:
      • Select Options -> File Options -> Browser -> then click Browse.  
      • Set the file name to a .html page located in the FeatureCAM Training file you just copied  ->FeatureCAM Training\FeatureCAMRollingDemo\Home_Menu.html.  
Lastly, we support programming and operation of the Mori Seiki NT-1000SZM.
