Working with Computer Numerical Control machinery, or CNC involves the use of pre-determined programs or codes which dictate the characteristics of the processing sequence of particular materials. Defining the said codes and their subsequent paths is at the core of Intuwiz G-code Generator’s functionality. With its help, users will be able to define custom toolpaths for their CNC machinery without resorting to any actual programming or command-line interaction.
Proposing a graphical user interface for CNC programming will most likely appeal to novices who are struggling with their apprehension of the subject. Sporting a really open, accessible layout, the app resorts to large, discernible figures and features for easy operation.
Several tabs and subsequent panels offer pre-determined shapes for common operations such as milling, drilling or engraving. Selecting each is an easy task and processing the selected item will yield the corresponding parameters and coordinate data in no time.
Besides the really apt toolpath creation features, users can also rely on dedicated calculus tools to help them determine other parameters, required in adjacent processes. Some of the most commonly used indicators, such as feed rate, torque or even power are provided.
As opposed to the actual toolpath characteristics, further processing the results from the calculators cannot be done directly via exporting. This could be a minor drawback, as users will have to manually copy the results and paste them to their CNC medium.
This program manages to bridge the gap between a programming-free approach and CNC machinery. Thanks to its straightforward interface and simplified operation, novice users will be able to create their toolpaths and G-codes for use with the specific CNC machinery software.
