Bud, what is “quick tool” ? I have never heard that term.

Does anybody have a document on how to use quick tool for a 2530 trumpf laser. I asked trumpf they said they dont have any. I would like to grid my part out at the machine.
When you are at the main screen press alt + tab this will take you to another screen click on update then click on quick tool this goes to a black screen were you will see keyboard menus 1 select file 2 machine type 5 utilities f1 exit enter 5 this goes to a screen that has more menus graphic program, sheet nester, laser table reports, arc error fix, tabbing, smoother, generic nc s840b, stop watch, ltt db utility, laser song, text & sign generator, disk nester, plus axis p rep, fly cutting, block numbers, bxsoft 1 nc, curves, 2 stage timer, proto, job list & nester, rotolas graphics ,sheet shearing, calculator , wrenches, s840b nc bosch, by soft 2 nc, spirit nc beam shape data. There are menus in side every one of these in side here I can nest lst files and grid them. I have a friend who works for Kawasaki rail car and I seen him grid parts right at the machine from a lst file. I an going to have come over and show me again this weekend. I was told by thumpf that one of the workers made this software it comes with the machine
Just in case you guys didn't figure this out, here it is.
Open Quick tool
Set file type ie..lst
Pick your single part lst file.
Set your sheet size X & Y
(9) make grid
name your Grid file
select starting corner
Grid Sweep x or y
with or without block numbers
Focus 132 and split your newly created grid file.
Hope this helps..
Hey Laserpro a friend came over from Kawasaki rail car and he show me what my problem was first go fast key 134 select the lst file and press copy. Enter C:\DH\TOPSMANU.DIR\FILENAME.LST ok then alt + tab update quick tool then do what you said but when I save 9 grid 2 make with subs our software is a little different. In the dxf file I was able to cut parts right from a dxf file and mini nest them. Having a problem making a grid it grids full size sheets. Also tried graphic programming it is like my old 240 punch trumpf graphic when I get time I will play with text & sign generator & wrenches.
Do you know what is laser song? Up at trumpf in training they had the machine playing a song as it was cutting I don’t have a clue how to do this. It is a song to laser cod conversion. Also I did not know you could split .grs .grd files. Thanks for your help but I will stick to my software in my office. Its good the guys at the machine.
I'm not sure what Laser song is, I've never messed with it. I can tell you that Trumpf don't include it anymore, I have a 3030 that is 6 months old, and it's not on there, and a 2030 that's a month old, and it's not there either. I have seen it on other machines, but for some reason Trumpf has stopped installing it. Such an application wouldn't be very practical for the shop, but I'm sure in the trade shows it impressed those people who saw it.
"Joe" something is the guy that wrote the quick tool stuff. He is in the applications department at Trumpf in Farmington. I've met him once several years ago, and spoke with him over the phone a couple times. He would be the guy to asked if you had any questions about quick tool.
No microjoints in quicktool when I make a single part with microjoints and run the lst file it cuts with microjoints I make a nested grid in tops it has microjoints.But when I grid the lst in quicktool I have no microjoints also I have no microjoint page.Do you have this problem laserpro.
I rarely use quicktool. I do the programming offline with Tops. If you call the applications department, and asked for Joe, he can help you. He is the guy that wrote the software. Trumpf Applications 860-255-6153
I have Quick Cut, from 1993, Backplot, and DNC (qc.exe, dnc.exe and bp.exe).
Is Quick Tool from Joe Troiani as well? If so, does it read in DXF's?
