Generate NC files immediately
IMSpost, the world’s most advanced postprocessing software, transforms CAD/CAM cutter location (CL) files into the specific machine (G/M) codes required by NC machines. With a flexible library of standard postprocessors and machine configurations, you can begin to generate NC files immediately.
The intuitive IMSpost user interface (with a checklist and Windows GUI) provides an efficient work environment that works seamlessly with all major CAD/CAM systems and hardware platforms. IMS macro processor, with source level debugger, provides support for the most complicated postprocessor configurations.
IMSpost features include:
- High speed machining
- Automatic conversion of point-to-point data to NURBS format
- User-customized interface or menus (call your own DLLs, scripts, or programs during postprocessor execution)
- Arc fitting of point-to-point data in any plane
- CL file read ahead
- Advanced linearization for multi-axis machines
- Optimized output using linear tangency
- State-of-the-art technology, using C++ and Windows GUI
- Support of all machine classes with any number of linear or rotary axes
- 5-axis drilling cycles
- Automatic support of co-linear axes
- Canned cycles or simulated drilling cycles for machines without cycle support
- Use of the same postprocessor for any CAM system or hardware platform
- Easy-to-use macro language and source level debugging tool that traces output line-by-line and statement-by-statement
- Access to all internal postprocessor variables and source code
- Conversational output style support
- User-definable postprocessor syntax
- Integrated controller emulation/reverse post technology
- Integrated APT/CL, G-code, and machine view provide the complete picture for CNC post development.
The IMSpost virtual CNC controller offers complete analysis of the machine code and provides a true picture of the tool motion. The virtual controller provides support for NC controls from all major manufacturers.
