Bring CNC machine work in house

DM vertical machining centers (VMCs) are standard proven mechanical designs built with precision linear rails, ballscrews, spindles, and tool changers. They are mechanically tough, fast, accurate, and reliable.

Our VMCs are better because of the Windows 10 PC based CNC controller and powerful end-to-end on the machine programming. The PC is the control.

The result is a Design & Manufacturing Station on the shop floor with a short learning curve. Bringing work in house is now much more possible and practical with our end-to-end solution.

What is C4 by Direct Motion?

C4 (patent pending) is an integrated, end-to-end, software and electronics system built into DM CNC machine tools. C4 covers all stages of your product manufacturing process.


Import 3D CAD models (step files), or design new 3D CAD parts on the machine.


Create advanced toolpaths around the CAD geometry, or import G codes from outside CAM.


Press go and run the 3, 4, or 5 axis machine. The table of tools is shared between CAM and CNC.


Automated probing routines for setup, measurement, and reverse engineering.

An end-to-end design and manufacturing solution

DM supplies an end to end design and manufacturing solution. You go to one place to solve any mechanical, control, or software problem or resolve any issue. If you have feature requests or other suggestions we love to hear them. Your software is routinely internet updated with new features - many new features do come from user requests or ideas. DM software will constantly evolve and improve. DM software is fast to learn and operate and will replace all outside CAD CAM software for many users. DM system is aimed at helping manufacturing businesses bring work in house by giving users an integrated end to end solution which can reasonably be learned and used by one person.
