Was there ever a conversational package or a cam program that was available as an add-on for a dx-32 control?
I need a way to make programs at the machine like would be possible in a conversational environment.
I need to do drilling-pocket milling-circular interpolation and threadmilling
right at the control and was curious if there was ever an add on package that would help for this
I realize this may be asking alot from a control from years ago.
I run a milltronics VM22 at work and the converational package on it is perfect for 2-D work and would like to be able to do even the basics on my TC22 without writing out the program
We have an lot of clients who place a laptop or old PC at the machine and utilize our Kipware conversational software to create their programs ... then upload them to the control. Old PC or a simple laptop are pretty inexpensive. Also makes it a good option as you can take the laptop anywhere ... like to another machine for example. You are not married to the machine and can utilize the system anywhere.
