Why SigmaTUBE

SigmaTUBE is a complete tube and pipe cutting software that operates seamlessly inside SOLIDWORKS. Custom modules help you optimize material usage and get the most out of your tube cutting machine. Supported machines include Mazak FabriGear, Trumpf, BLM, Bystronic, Amada and more.

Complex programming made easy

Improve order turnaround time

Maximize material usage and machine performance

No separate CAM system required

The World's Best Tube Cutting Software

SigmaTUBE operates seamlessly inside SOLIDWORKS, generating nests and NC code with any external programs. Using SigmaTUBE, you can create your own parts from a library of standard shapes or import parts and assemblies from a wide variety of 3D CAD systems.

  • SOLIDWORKS
  • Inventor
  • Siemens NX
  • Parasolid
  • PTC Creo

All nesting and toolpath data is generated and stored within SOLIDWORKS, making it easy for you to program your tube cutting machine from one seat of software.

  • Automatic feature recognition
  • Advanced automatic and manual nesting
  • Multi-profile nesting
  • Automatically separate and nest assemblies based on tube type, shape, and material
  • Generate NC code without exporting parts or leaving SOLIDWORKS
  • Toolpath generated by part or by nest
  • Programmable tube supports
  • Realistic toolpath simulation
  • Contour segmentation
  • Automatic toolpath generation and sequencing
  • Automatic geometry compensation for 4 and 5-axis machines
  • Quickly create new parts using the standard shapes library:
  • Round tubes
  • Rectangular tubes
  • Square tubes
  • General convex tubes
  • Extruded sections
  • Angle irons
  • Channels
  • I-Beams
  • Automatically and easily add features to newly created shapes:
  • Miters
  • Holes
  • Cutouts
  • Copes
  • Chamfers
  • Fillets
  • Tabs and notches
  • Marking/etching
