CAD to CNC PROGRAMMING MADE EASIER
Flashcut CNC is a dedicated software package which gives high performance low cost CNC results, and is supplied as standard with both models of the Ray-Ran CNC Sample Profile Cutter. Effortlessly integrated between machine and PC, Flashcut CNC uses standard numerical G-Code and Letter Addresses for real time CNC control.
The FlashCut CNC software has an easy to use, yet powerful operator control panel that puts all of the machine control you need at your fingertips. It has been meticulously engineered to work seamlessly with 64 and 32 bit versions of Windows based operating systems without changing sensitive operating system parameters. It dynamically displays the tool path while sending real time motion commands to the CNCs Signal Generator over a high speed USB connection for smooth, dependable, accurate motion on most PC's or Laptops.
The system has been designed to accept industry standard G & M codes ensuring full compatibility with leading professional Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing software (CAD/CAM).
For the experienced user of Computer Aided Design software such as AutoCad, simple 2D drawings can be imported into the software as .DXF files using Flashcut CNC’s Import feature. Once simple set up parameters are configured the software will generated a simple G-Code program to machine the part. If you have CAM, software programs generated by your Post Processor can also be imported as .FGC files direct to the Flashcut software, the program will then generate the cutter path in the viewports on the main control panel.
For the novice, pre-written CNC programs are also available direct from Ray-Ran for any shape or size of test sample to any International test standard, eliminating the need for CAD/CAM trained operators or skilled CNC programmers.
