According to the company, several new wizards are included to make the automated manufacturing process easier and more efficient. The bolt hole circle wizard; drill position wizard; feed and speed wizard; and triangle wizard each provide a dynamic preview, allowing changes and options to be explored before inserting new code.  

A graphics rendering process called Dynamic Rendering improves rendering performance while graphics processing via Dynamic Graphics improves changing views, zooming, rotating and panning performance for solid, turbo and machine simulation views. Both the rendering and graphics processing processes improve the number of colors and add support for multiple light sources as well as real-world material properties.
