|Subject: Fun new software titles available at Soigeneris! Wed Oct 24, 2012 5:57 pm|| |
I have been a happy user of the following two software titles for many months now. I recommend them all the time to folks and just recently worked things out with the software developers to be able to offer both of them through Soigeneris. You can download a fully functional demo of each package to play with so feel free to take a look.
CNCWrapper - This is a great little utility program for guys with a 4th (rotary) axis. It will take regular 'flat' GCode and wrap it around a virtual cylinder. This lets you do things like set up some text to be engraved just like you normally would, then you can 'wrap' that GCode and engrave the text onto something round. like a can or pen. CNCWrapper will also generate the code to turn a blank down to size to get it ready.
Gearotic Motion - This program does so many cool things it is hard to name them all. It is written by the original developer of Mach 3 with the intention of automatically generating DXF files of gear profiles for use with a CAM program. Once he got going Art added the ability to directly generate the GCode, do animations on the screen of gear trains and create all sorts of wild and fun tings like elliptical gears.
