Milling / Routing Software

Computer aided design

Computer aided design

This provides a number of tools which allow the user to input a series of straight lines, arcs, circles, polygon shapes and text to design their 2.5D components.

It includes manipulation tools which allow elements to be moved, copied, mirrored, rotated, distorted, trimmed or replicated in both rectangular or circular and a ‘smart fill’ tool which can fill pocketed areas with colour.

2D component profiles can also be imported from most third party CAD packages.

Manual Data Input

Manual Data Input

This feature allows advanced users to edit programs or devise new ones to create their own unique cutting paths.

The automatic error check function ensures that any tool feeds, speeds or cut depths inappropriate for the chosen material are detected and warned against.

3D Photo Engraving Import Wizard

3D Photo Engraving Import Wizard

A fun, easy and unique programme which allows any image (in JPEG or BMP format) to be imported and machined.

The image can be cropped, resized and fitted onto a piece of work or component and a 3D relief model automatically created.

A unique ‘back-lighting’ feature also creates an amazing hologram-type effect on the finished component.

3D-GeoCAM

3D-GeoCAM

This software allows the 3D files (STL format only) of any computer designed solid model to be imported, and a cutter path automatically created, in order for it to be manufactured by the machine.

Supports a range of CAD packages

Supports a range of CAD packages

Including SolidWorks, Pro/Desktop, Pro/ENGINEER, Creo Elements/ pro, AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor.

Quicker, more intelligent machining

Quicker, more intelligent machining

Unlike other more simple programmes, 3D-GeoCAM is intelligent and capable of establishing which parts of the component have already been removed. This means it does not waste time going over old ground on material which has already been machined.

Improves component quality

Improves component quality

Able to machine more complex geometries and surfaces, leaving less machine marks than other programmes and producing a superior quality finish on the designed component.

4D-GeoCAM Cylindrical Solid Model Import

4D-GeoCAM Cylindrical Solid Model Import

This programme allows cylindrical 3D models to be imported and cutting paths automatically created so they can be machined in 4D utilising an automatic 4th axes.

GerberMill PCB Design Import

GerberMill PCB Design Import

This programme allows PCB gerber files to be imported and creates both cutting paths and drilling routines for either single or double sided PCB machining.
