CAD Software for AXYZ CNC Routers


A product of SA International, Enroute is a long standing CNC Router product in the market, dating back to the mid 1990’s for their first release called “Machineshop”. EnRoute is a well known product that also offers several product level versions, depending on your experience and application needs.

Basic – Ease-of-use that is unequalled in the industry. The Graphical User Interface is laid out logically, and gives you the option to work both visually and technically. Don’t just output, design and output all within EnRoute. Save time with Associative Toolpaths that keep an active link between the toolpath and the geometry, automatically recalculating accurately any time the geometry is changed (i.e. scale, resize, rotate). Avoid costly mistakes. EnRoute’s rendering lets you easily preview your job before you send it to the router, potentially avoiding costly mistakes as well as wasted time and material.

Plus – All the tools found in BASIC as well as Quick Fit Nesting. Just drag the object and it will automatically fit itself in the most space-efficient way, almost like the object can think for itself! The rotation and nesting parameters can still be controlled.
User Profile: Custom 2D parts and shapes, fast decorative accents, production runs.

Pro – All the tools from BASIC and PLUS as well as several 3D specific design and manufacturing tools including:

  • Baroque Chamfer – This tool is unique to EnRoute and allows the user to replicate an effect that is very common in hand-carved work.
  • Textures – The new textures available in EnRoute 4 provide a unique new ability to define surfaces using parameters. This provides the ability to create a virtually limitless selection of surfaces that can be saved to templates so that they are easily repeatable from job to job.
  • Relief Editing – The new relief editing tools provide a quick and simple method for editing any relief surface using tools that are similar to bitmap painting tools. This provides another powerful creative tool for relief creation.
  • User Profile: Custom 2D parts and shapes, fast decorative accents, production runs plus the ability to create full 3D 3 axis output.

Enroute Wood – This package delivers an end-to-end, seamless connection between your cabinet software and your CNC machine. It’s the fastest and easiest NBM (Nested Based Manufacturing) software in the market.

User Profile: Easy and fast NBM from your cabinet design application. 2D and 3D engrave capabilities for custom work to move beyond the limitations of your cabinet design software.
