CNC milling software - nccad professional

NCCAD Prof 1 Software- the CNC milling software nccad professional allows the easy creation of milling contours and simple 3D drawings. The helical milling function is also available. CAD is provided with the special features including gear cutting, ellipse, curve interpolation, engraving, circuit board milling etc. Network compatible software

Type of control - 3D interpolation i. e. 3 axes moved simultaneously. The 4th axis is programmable in CAD an be mode. In CNC G Code mode (DIN 66025) all 4 axes can be displaced simultaneously in one instruction. By supporting the microstepping and the Look A-head feature, this control type guarantees a smooth run and high position resolution as well as an anticipatory program process. With nccad professional the machine runs at a very high speed on all axes and the work spindle can optionally be turned on or off as well.

Conventional machiningpossible with the controller switched off.

Dialog-oriented operator guidance

NCCAD Prof 3 Program input to DIN 66025 with G and M functions as well as graphical programming.

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

Contour designing - CAD mode allows the input or modification of coordinates i. e. instructions can be modified, added and/or deleted. With nccad professional, 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 functions drawing of straight lines, arcs, circles, polygons, engraving etc. The contours can be moved, rotated, copied, mirrored and trimmed.

NCCAD Prof 4 Input of technology values for the drawn contour e.g. feed, tool Ø, total depth, part in-feed and the lapping factor of the tool in the case of pocket milling, processing sequence etc. The machining process can be influenced by  factors such as the individual part, step drilling, pocket angle parallel, and pocket contour parallel. Furthermore, the operator can choose between inside or outside machining. Climb milling or standard milling can be set.

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

Graphic simulationwith Open GL - 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.

NCCAD Prof 6 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.

Tool specification - allows the definition of tools by entering the angle, length and shape of cutting edges etc.

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

NCCAD Prof 7

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

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.

NCCAD Prof 8

Tool memory - the administration of up to 20 different tools. The fully automatic tool memory calculates the deviations between the tools on the basis of the tool dimensions.
