This pc-based, user-friendly utility lets the cad room and the shop floor view and edit the NC tool path before they cut the part. They can see all tool path motion, plus canned cycles, m codes, g codes, spindle speeds, tool codes and federates. The software also allows zooming, rotating and panning of the tool path, as well as picking motion lines and setting origin and region views. The software can make operator cut sheets, and print out part surfaces in color or black-and-white. DATA-View's NC tool path editor can change the part program file, cut, copy and past features. It can also find and replace, block re-number with user-defined roll over, scaling, mirroring and offset. The software includes DATA-Link, a utility that uses a pc's serial port to download files to the machine tool, and DATA-Optimize, a module that makes NC programs run 20-50 percent faster.
