cutviewer products

Cutviewer is an easy-to-use program that simulates 2, 2-1/2 and 3 axis CNC Machines removing material from Stock in true Solid modeling. Using CutViewer will increase your productivity, all but eliminate programming errors, and prevent machine down time while debugging. Powerful, easy-to-use tools allow you to debug errors in the toolpath, detect collision of the tool with material stock while rapiding, and estimate machining time. CutViewer can be customized to support a wide variety of machines. Cutviewer is developed by Lamson Global, a small software company that focuses only on CNC simulation. Cutviewer has been in constant development for 11 years with thousands of users.

CutViewer Mill 3.2 ($250 US)Corner Rounding End Mill tool shape, supporting # variables, math functions, expressions, logical operations, GOTO, IF THEN, WHILE statements for Fanuc configuration, Solid mode for the Tool image, Lines renumbering, new screen layout including up to four different views, simultaneous display of Solid and Toolpath, the ability to re-define a Stock, new Reset button, update of machining time for each cut and much,much more... 

Cutviewer MillCutViewer TurnCutViewer Turn 3.2 ($190 US): the ability to select Solid or Wireframe mode for the Tool image, new Reset button, highlighting the current block at the edit window during Simulation. The true power of this software is its ability to assist in identifying and fixing errors before cutting the actual material thereby saving both time and money. The powerful editing capability integrated with the viewer portion of the program, simplifies the tedious task of finding a problem spot in a file and fixing it. CutViewer Mill + Turn Combo ($340 US)

CutViewer can EDIT NC files without exiting simulation mode. It enables real time correction and verification. Key features of CutViewer are FAST viewing with the ability to pause, change view, zoom in, section the stock, change display speed etc and then resume verification.

CutViewer supports forward and backward step-by-step modes, displaying of the current tool position, tool parameters and spindle speeds and allows easy isolation of any area of concern. One can set up break points, reach a problem area, switch to a line-by-line mode, observe the cuts line by line, stop at a particular point, and open the edit window and edit the line, all without requiring any line numbers or other identifiers!

CutViewer allows the user to dynamically zoom, scale, rotate and explore the part and the path to resolve problems faster and with greater ease. CutViewer provides accurate measurement capabilities to inspect the part at any time of processing, this includes thickness, distance between geometric features, angles, hole parameters etc. It also includes a unique property that allows the measurement of control points on any vertical section.
