    Question Need a very use-specific software

    Hello all!

    We have a Fanuc wire machine that we use to cut PCD disks into specific shapes for tooling. This process requires the piece be cut in such a way that a tit is not left on the bottom of the profile when the piece drops off. I already use nesting software to optimize that side of the process but right now the software we have to create a usable program is ANCIENT. It requires a specific computer running Windows 2000 Professional with a serial port license. I need to get rid of this ancient rock and get an updated program. The caveat comes in that it needs to allow me to manually trace out the path I need the wire to cut. We're talking super simple G01 XY and G02/G03 XYIJ movement. No 4 axis.

    wrap up:

    super simple CAM software
    MANUAL tracing of path to output

    Hoping someone will know of something out there! Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

    Will your software allow me to manually pick a path for the wire to follow?

    Yes, you can choose exactly the path the software will take from your drawing.

    You can create the drawing using the 2D CAD module that is included or you can import DXF files.
