CIMCO Edit is the editor-of-choice for professional CNC programmers who demand a reliable, full-featured and professional editing and communication tool.
CIMCO Edit is the latest version of the most popular CNC
program editor on the market. With over 80,000 licenses
distributed in the past few years, CIMCO Edit is the editor-of-choice for professional CNC programmers who demand a
full-featured and reliable, cost-effective professional editing
and communication tool.
Every aspect of CIMCO Edit is new, from the multi-pane
tabbed layout to the dynamic toolbars and menus. CIMCO Edit
also includes new and powerful tools such as an enhanced file
compare utility, a reengineered graphical backplotter, and the
new NC-Assistant programming tool.
Full-featured CNC editor
CIMCO Edit provides a comprehensive set of essential
editing tools necessary for meeting the demands of modern
CNC program editing.
It has no program size limitations and includes
CNC code specific options such as line numbering / renumbering,
character handling and XYZ range finder. It also features math
functions including basic math, rotate, mirror, tool compensation,
and translate. CIMCO Edit offers all the functions expected
from an editor including drag-and-drop text editing. Best of all
CIMCO Edit is completely configurable and is easily adapted
to any existing CNC program editing environment.
Faster editing with NC-Assistant
The NC-Assistant makes editing NC code faster and easier
than ever. Point at any M or G code and the NC-Assistant will
identify the code allowing you to modify values using an interactive
interface linked to the CNC code. Input the desired
values for any register and the NC-Assistant updates the CNC
The NC-Assistant in CIMCO Edit allows you to quickly insert and edit
complex cycles and operations. CIMCO Edit 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.
The 3D Mill / 2D Lathe backplotter handles your 3-axis Mill
and 2-axis lathe CNC programs with step and continuous
forward and reverse plotting. Edit the CNC program and the
update is automatically reflected in the plot. Analyze the plot
with dynamic zoom, pan, rotate and measuring functions.
CIMCO Edit supports solid visualization of NC code with
toolholder collision check and gouge detection.
Intelligent File Compare
CIMCO Edit features a fast and fully configurable side-by-side
file compare, allowing the user to quickly identify CNC program
changes. The file compare identifies changed and deleted / inserted
lines, but ignores trivial format changes like block renumbering
and spacing. Differences are displayed one line at a
time, all at once or printed side-by-side for offline review
Standard or Professional
CIMCO Edit comes in two versions. CIMCO Edit Professional is the popular solution most widely selected by our customers, but if you do not need the full-featured version you may choose our CIMCO Edit Standard. This solution, for example combined with a DNC Link add-on, is often the choice of customers, who need only basic editing features and straight-forward transmission of files to a few machines.

CNC Communications and DNC
CIMCO Edit includes DNC capabilities for reliable RS-232
communications with a variety of CNC controls. With the DNC
option you can send and receive CNC programs to multiple
machines simultaneously from inside CIMCO Edit.
Support for Mazatrol Files

CNC-Calc - 2D CAD add-in for CIMCO Edit
CNC-Calc is a fully featured 2D CAD solution that works inside
CIMCO Edit. This add-on is a fast and effective solution for solving
problems with complex 2D geometry. Users can draw or import (DXF)
2D geometry, specify cut depths, lead-in, lead-out, and other tool
path variables and quickly generate CNC code in ISO and other conversational
formats for contours and drilling.
