Milling is in most cases a complex process and in all of them one that needs to be exact. The machines that do the cutting are no doubt accurate if they’re up to date with maintenance but when it comes to the gcode used to trace the workpath, there is always a reason for concern.
Human error exists and since you don’t want to waste both time and money, CutViewer Mill is designed so you can simulate the entire milling process in a simple and straightforward manner.
Complete simulation of the toolpath and result
CutViewer Mill enables you to load the gcode file and displays the raw material block from which the designed piece will be obtained. With a simple click of the ‘Run’ button, the application begins the simulation, reproducing every single movement of the tool and creating the 3D element.
Since your intention is to prevent errors and faulty cuts, CutViewer Mill is fitted with a feature that tells it when the cutter makes contact with the stock, in other words, it has collision detection.
View the simulation from any angle
Being able to view the cutting process is an important aspect as it allows you to study it and anticipate or spot certain problems. For this reason CutViewer Mill provides not one but four preview windows which you can toggle at the same time.
You can choose between isometric, front, rear, top, bottom, left or right views. If none of them provide the optimum position, It's possible to opt for the isometric view and with the rotation tool, reposition the piece anyway you want.
This can be done in all four windows and with the additional fact that you can also cut into a section, it’s impossible not to see what you want to.
A CNC machining simulator for all types of users
CutViewer Mill displays a user-friendly interface and should be appealing to both those who are just starting with gcode and milling, as well as to experts who are just looking for a fast and reliable means of testing the toolpath.
