CNC12 Router Restructure Beta Software thread.

Post by cnckeith »

We've been working on tailoring CNC12 Router to better fit a typical CNC Router Operators work flow.

This 'remodel' of CNC12 Router will be released initially as CNC12 v5.18 for Acorn only.

The remodel largely consists of restructuring the CNC12 menus for Router work and adding many new built-in canned features for Touch Plates, Rotary Tables and Improvements in the Tool Library with built in "smart" macros that are based on the machine configuration in the Wizard. So for instance in the Wizard if you have a Rack Mount ATC with a fixed Tool Touch off device and you selected "measure tools after each tool change", in CNC12 the "F7 Change Tool" button knows that and will Put the tool away, Get the new tool and automatically touch off the TT.

The other theme with the restructure is that F keys inside of CNC12 that has any action or motion will be broken out to a editable macro. This way user can use the centroid supplied macro as is, make simple edits like changing words , make heavy edits by commenting out lines or adding lines or even completely replace the Centroid supplied macro with their own macro to suit their specific application.

I start this thread as a place to include you our valued customers in the continued development of CNC12 Router.

I hope to be able to post a public beta download here soon!

in the mean time here is a video of some new tools we added to G code backplot in CNC12 Router.

and we will add a similar rectangular box for the work envelope in addition to being able to show the machine travel limits. :D

Looking great, Keith!

Do you have a CNC12 version that can be installed on a design computer for preview of the gcode yet? or does it still require CNC hardware connected to preview?

You can install the offline version of CNC12 to preview g-code, or use Notepad++ with the NCnetic plugin.
Cheers,

yep!

every new feature in Router that also applies to mill (or lathe) will be included with Mill or lathe or plasma for that matter :D
