milling software / lathe software


Explanation:
"drehen" = turning.
But "turning software" delivers no hits on Google.

The following URL:
http://www.google.com/search?as_q=software &num=10&btnG=Goog...
delivers hits and info for "milling software" (which inbckludes turning) and also "lathe software" which equally includes turning, a form of metal milling.

Often some of these programs are also found under "CNC software" (Computer Numerical Control)

That's it.
