CNC milling software - nccad basic

NCCAD Basic 1

Software- the CNC milling machine software nccad basic allows the easy creation of milling contours. By offering the possibility of backlash compensation, nccad basic provides for high accuracy when machining with a machine tool equipped with standard leadscrews.

Network compatible software
An Update to nccad professional can be installed at any time (provided that ball screws are used).

NCCAD Basic 2

Conventional machiningis possible with the controller switched off. 

Dialogue-oriented operator guidance

Type of control - 2 ½ D interpolation,  i. e. two axes can be displaced simultaneously. The 3rd axis can be advanced when required. Under G Code progamming instruction full 3D machining is provided.By supporting the microstepping feature, this control type guarantees a smooth run and high position resolution.
NCCAD Basic 3

Program input - according to DIN 66025 with G- and M functions as well as graphical programming.

Data import - the contour is imported in form of dxf files from a CAD system such as Auto CAD or HPGL in case of Corel Draw or as a STL file from inventor. nccad basic automatically converts these files into an executable program. Designing may also be done in the comfortable CAD mode.

NCCAD Basic 4 Contour designing - CAD mode allows the input or modification of coordinates i. e. instructions can be modified, added and/or deleted. With nccad basic, the contour to be milled can be drawn and displayed on the monitor by using the mouse or the keyboard. As a standard, the CAD mode offers the drawing of straight lines, arches, circles, polygons, engravings etc. The contours can be moved, rotated, copied, mirrored and trimmed.
NCCAD Basic 5

Input of technological values for the drawn contour e.g. feed, tool diam, total depth, part in-feed and the overlapping factor of the tool in the case of pocket milling, processing sequences, etc. The machining process can be influenced by the factors individual part, step drilling, pocket angle parallel and pocket contour parallel. Furthermore, there operator can choose between inside or outside machining. Climb cut milling or standard milling can be set.

Automatic creation of CNC programs (G Code) on the basis of a designed contour according to DIN 66025.

NCCAD Basic 6 Graphic simulation - prior to the actual machining of a work piece the operator may run a simulation. By means of this method potential programming errors can be eliminated in a quick and easy way and an unnecessary collision can be avoided.
Operating panel -via the operating panel the CNC milling machine can even be run without a program either by direct input of the displacement value via the keypad or by using the arrow keys of the operating panel. The current values are displayed on the monitor.
NCCAD Basic 7

Tool specification - serves for the administration of the tools.

Machine zero point – is interrogated by means of a reference travel via limit switches. Up to 20 further zero points can be set.

Help functions
- comfortable direct help functions within the software. Direct access to icon explanation via the F1 key.

NCCAD Basic 8

System requirements- Pentium 2 min., at least 600 MHz, working memory min. 64 MB RAM, CD drive, serial interface, graphic resolution min. 1024 x 768, 60 MB left on main board. Open GL simulation requires a fast graphic card with a large memory such as GeForce2 made by NVIDIA.


Operating system – Windows XP and Windows NT.
