Coming soon Next version
FixedImproved Sheet reports.CAMREPORT
FixedFixed bug in Quality paint when selecting side and using snaps.CAM
FixedRevision 2: The variable $contains is a bit value that holds information about many things. The variable has now also value 16 to check if any circular piercing are used.CAMLISP
FixedFixed bug with turning off speed ramping when using IGEMS rev 2.CAM
FixedThe function (ITOA <value>) can now convert 64 bits float to strings. Before it was a 32 bit limit.LISP

ChangedModified how six-axis rapids are created. Also added restrictions that rapids never go higher than the max z movement in the machine.3D5X
ChangedRevision 2 A good length for a lead in Linear piercing is around 12% of the thickness. The we are using X-fine speed. If we make the lead longer then we speed up (for saving time). Before we could speed up to X-rough speed. Now this is changed to Rough speed. This because we found problem with that high speed when cutting in plastic material.CAD
ChangedAdded a quantity column when registering sheets to the sheet database.CAM
ChangedAdded a warning if leadout length is too short in the lead dialog.CAM
NewAdded a setting for using Fixed speed on 3D-5X toolpaths.CAM3D5X

2022-05-17R2022.2.2713
NewRevision 2 New abrasive pre-load delay settings to control the time for the preloading of the abrasive when piercing in low pressure.
ChangedAdded multiselect in 3D-5X quality command. If only one toolpath is selected then you can paint the quality as before. If multiple toolpaths are selected they will all get the selected quality.3D5X
ChangedRows are now color coded. Rows are red if Remain<=0 or Released=0. So, rows are black only if the part is released for production and quantity is > produced.ORGANIZER
ChangedWhen registering parts there is a new checkbox that if checked will set released=0 if produced>=quantity. This means the released for production flag will be set to off when the part is fully produced.ORGANIZER
ChangedYou can now double-click on the Released column in the table to enable/disable the released flag. If the released flag is 0 and you double click the released flag will be set to 1 and produced to 0. This means that for recurring parts you can just double-click on the released cell to put the part back in production.ORGANIZER
ChangedThe sheet database rows are now color coded. The rows are red if quantity=0.CAM
ChangedThe Organizer button in the sheet database now only lists parts that are released for production.CAM

2022-05-10R2022.2.2698
NewAdded a connection to Organizer in the Sheet database. It's now possible to list all organizer parts in the current material and compare to available sheets. There is also a button to automatically open all parts and sheets in AutoNest. CAM
ChangedAdded dialog when registering sheets. You can now select if only the sheet, sheet+parts or if the sheet should be locked when registering.CAM
FixedFixed bug in zone detectionCAM
2022-05-04R2022.2.2693
ChangedRevision 1 The settings for piercing delays was changed in version 2686. This settings are now changed back as it was before. The reason of this is that it needs modification in all postprocessors and we change our mind about this. This changes will only be used in Revision 2.CAM
ChangedLock sheet can now handle multiple sheets at the same time. This allows you to lock sheets when using multiple cutting heads where the parts are on different sheets.CAM

ChangedSheet database. Cutorder is now also saved with the sheet when registered.CAM
ChangedIn EditPart you can now save the selected lead in the lead database.CAM
ChangedThe DXF reader can now handle drawings with 3D-triangles.DATAEXCHANGE
ChangedNew Sheet database changes. When a sheet is inserted to a drawing it is NOT removed from the database. Instead it is flagged with Inserted=1, this means it has been inserted to a drawing. When this same sheet is registered again the sheet is updated in the database and Inserted is set to 0. So, Inserted=1 means the sheet is imported to a drawing and Inserted=0 means it is available for use. This means that if you forget to register or the computer crashes the sheet is still available in the database. This works even if you make changes to the sheet, like locking, dividing etc...CAM

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
2021-06-04R2021.2.2534
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
