CAD/CAM Changelog

Coming soon Next version
NewNew Lisp function STRS add strings together and returns the results with double quotes before and after. Following will generate the same result. (STRCAT (CHR 34) "One " "Two " Three" (CHR 34)) The function just simplify the postprocessor to IGEMS cnc.LISP
NewNew lisp function FILE-FINDALLDIR (FILE-FINDALLDIR <path> <mask>) returns a list with all folders in specified path.LISP
NewNew option in LISP programmable dialog system. The keyword ITEMS can replace the content in GP-CHOICE and GP-LISTBOX objects.LISP

R2021.2.2539
NewNew type of loops in 3D-5X. You can now specify two new type of loops in 3D-5X. One with a single radius and one with a double-radius. You can also set a minimum radius for the single case.3D5X
FixedFixed bug with the new acceleration method. Segments after a small radius was not handled correctly.CAM
2021-06-11R2021.2.2535
FixedFixed problem on machines using pumps that only could use 2 different pressures. Low and High. The problem could be if IGEMS was using three different pressures and the cutting pressure was not the highest. In that case the machine was not switch to High pressure for cutting.CAMLISP
2021-06-09R2021.2.2537
ChangedOptimized cutting database The algorithms are the same as 2021.2.34 but we have removed inputs that are not longer relevant. This makes the input more easy to handle. From now we will use only one distance. This is used both for deceleration and acceleration. On acceleration out from inside corners we use two distances. The first with slow acceleration and the second with normal acceleration
2021-06-09R2021.2.2534
ChangedUpdated ILISP dokumentationLISP
ChangedOptimized cutting database. We have optimized the way we accelerate on inside corners. The acceleration is now divided in two length. The first has a slow acceleration and the second a faster acceleration. This changes result in similar quality, but a shorer cutting time.CAM
FixedFixed bug in loops. Toolpath was not perpend when minimal loops was unchecked.3D5X
2021-06-04R2021.2.2530
NewThree LISP functions to calculate speed and acceleration (ACCTIME <distance> <start speed> <end speed>) returns the time in minutes for a linear acceleration.

(ACCENDSPEED <distance> <start speed> <acceleration>) The function returns the actual speed at the distance in a linear acceleration.LISP
ChangedMarking time per part is now calculated correctly and not averaged.REPORT
