Data export / machine control.
 
Our programs have not only interfaces to the most frequent standard formats, such as EPS, HPGL, DXF or DIN/ISO, but also offer the important introduced engraving systems, such as LANG, Kuhlmann, Baublys, Einzinger, isel, vhf, almost all CNC - milling centres etc. With this, you can take over without problem data from AutoCAD, CorelDraw, ADOBE Illustrator and the majority of CAD/CAM systems and process these using your machines. You will find the general milling data export under File . direct mill and via the aid direct mill auto. Here the milling paths are linked and exported in the layers with tools. If only graphics (or simple cutter centre tracks) are to be exported, for example for EPS, DXF etc. export can take place without tool data. For this select File . Export Graphic. The programs in addition have the comfortable direct output millCONTROL to various machines/control systems (LANG MCG, vhf CNC750, Mimaki, Roland).
 
 
 
Important data exports:
 

CNC-Step Machines of the firm CNC-STEP (S400, S720, RaptorX-AL, RaptorX-SL).
Haase Machines of the firm Haase (CUT2500, AL-Serie, CUT3000ultimate, CUT4000ultimate, FE-Serie).
Roland Machines of the firm Roland (EGX-20, EGX-30A, EGX-350, EGX-360, EGX-600/400).
WinPC-NC WinPC-NC (WinPC-NC, WinPC-NC USB, WinPC-NC Professional).
 
 
 
direct mill auto.

The programs using CAD have available a direct data export to the output program. Using direct mill auto you economise on the export of the data and the call-up of the out put program. Following the setting -up of the data export the milling program takes over all operations. After only one click you can directly go on working.

DirectMillAuto
 
A click on the aid direct mill auto and the milling program takes on everything necessary for data export.

DIN/ISO (G-Code)  Export.

 
G - Code / DIN or ISO is a "standardised" language for milling machines (DIN66025). The format is for considerably better resolutions than, for example, HPGL and is configured for several milling axes. Disadvantage is the inadequate standardisation, i.e. the DIN standard allows dialects. This is also the reason that, in AHSoft  programs any number of DIN/ISO export filters are available. Almost every machine requires its own filter. Should a DIN/ISO filter not be available for your machine, we would be happy to create a suitable export filter.
