CIMCO CNC-calc 6 generates high-quality toolpaths which result in reduced machining time, improved surface quality, less tool wear, and longer machine tool life. Toolpaths are layed out directly on your geometrical drawing using a simple point and click approach. Specifying only a minimum of parameters CIMCO CNC-calc 6 generates and visualizes the toolpaths in an instant.
Cycles and macros
CIMCO CNC-calc 6 includes built-in cycles and macros for the most common operations such as program start, program stop and tool change. You can also record or create custom cycles and macros for the operations most common to your own specific setups and applications. This allows you to create macros which can be "plugged" into your CNC program as needed, and each machine can be tailored for a specific format.
Single Click Trimming
Trim between intersections with a single click. The element is automatically broken in two and trimmed to the two intersections closest to where you clicked.
A wide variety of snap options make it easy for you to select specific points in your drawing. Snap options such as "snap to intersections" and "snap to circles and arcs center points" can be activated separately, in combination or all at once.
Milling of letters and numbers
Support for milling of text. Choose any true-type font you might want to use and simply write the text you need to mill. CNC-Calc will automatically lay out the toolpaths for the text and convert everything into CNC code for you.
Intelligent Bolt Hole Patterns
Create rectangular (rows and columns) and circular (full circle or circle segment) bolt hole patterns in seconds This cuts down on repetitive tasks and saves you time.
Round Corner Intersections
Create fillets on any corner intersections with any radius. Simply specify a radius for your fillet and click on the corner intersections.
CNC-Calc includes all the transformation features expected from a modern 2D CAD system. Offset, mirror, rotate, translate and scale part or all of the geometry.
