Hello, Can anyone help please? I have been setting and operating CNC milling machines for a few years now. I have taken on a new job as a setter operator for a different firm, I can look at a program and understand what the m/c is doing from it what but my own programming is very limited. I was wondering if there is any good CNC simulation software (preferably free) out there as I want to refine my programming skills, but do not always have the time to do it in work.
thats perfect thanks for your help
Other brands ok?
CNC simulator is quite good, took me a bit of messing around to get the workpiece datums correct. I plan on getting the tool offsets from the m/c at work inputting all the data in and have a practice. I don't get much of a chance to write programs as the majority are written for us. Would be handy if you knew of any decent cad software so I could draw out a job then simulate making it on CNCsimulator
