CIMCO CNC-Calc 7 is designed for ease-of-use that enables the user to draw contours fast and easily. It features common functions for drawing lines and circles in relation to the coordinate system and/or existing geometry. Functionality ranges from the plain “horizontal line” to the complex “circle tangent to three elements”. It includes advanced trimming capabilities and an easy point and click approach for toolpaths layout.
CIMCO CNC-Calc 7 imports DXF files. From DXF files it is possible to generate toolpaths for lathe and mills, such as ISO, Fanuc and Heidenhain controllers. Other features include generation of user-defined compensation types like computer, controller, wear, and reverse wear.
CIMCO CNC-calc 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 generates and visualizes the toolpaths in an instant.
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.
Snap to anything
A wide variety of snap options makes 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.
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, trans- late, and scale part or all of the geometry.
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.
