Calculations for CNC-programs can be both hard and time consuming. They often include complex calculations of for instance intersection- and tangency points. Traditionally, these calculations have been performed using calculators and trigonometrical tables. CIMCO CNC-Calc 2 is a fully featured 2D CAD system working as a powerful add-on to CIMCO Edit 5. It is a fast and cost-efficient solution to solve problems with complex geometrical contours.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
CIMCO CNC-Calc 2 has been designed with usability in mind, which enables you to draw contours easy and fast. Its comprehensive functionality ranges from functions such as the plain “horizontal line” to the complex “circle tangent to three elements”. It includes advanced trimming options and a simple point and click approach to laying out toolpaths and drill cycles.
CIMCO CNC-Calc 2 imports AutoCAD DXF files and generates toolpaths and drill patterns for ISO and Heidenhain conversational programming. Other features include automatic generation of configurable lead in/out containing lines and arcs.
CIMCO CNC-Calc 2 works from within CIMCO Edit 5, which extends its functionality even further. Being an integrated part of the editor environment makes it an easy task to view and backplot generated toolpaths. This helps to ensure that your program behaves correctly and to avoid unnecessary use of time and machine resources.
