Ucamco has released version 2019.02.04 of XNC, an optimized CAD/CAM exchange NC format. It is a minimal subset of IPC-NC-349, capable of exchanging CAD/CAM drill information.

This format is complete, with no need for a sidecar file. There are no embellishments. Great care has been taken to make the specification compact and unequivocal. A number of CAD/CAM software vendors are already engaged in supporting the XNC format.
