Essential editing tools

CIMCO Edit provides a comprehensive set of essential editing tools necessary for meeting the demands of modern CNC program editing.

Cimco Edit has no program size limitations. Editor also includes CNC code specific options such as line numbering / renumbering, character handling and XYZ range finder. Math functions are also included to perform basic math, rotate, mirror, tool compensation, and translate. Cimco Edit offers all the functions expected from a modern G code editor including drag-and-drop text editing. Best of all Cimco Edit is completely configurable and is easily adapted to any existing CNC program editing environment.

Faster editing with NC-Assistant

The Cimco Edit NC-Assistant makes editing NC code faster and easier than ever. Point at any M or G code and the NC-Assistant will identify the code allowing you to modify values using an interactive interface linked to the CNC code. Input the desired values for any register and the NC-Assistant updates the CNC code automatically.

The NC-Assistant allows you to quickly insert and edit complex cycles and operations. NC-Assistant includes built-in cycles and macros for the most common operations. These include operations such as program start, program stop and tool change. You can also record or create custom cycles and macros for the operations most common to your own specific setups and applications.

Cimco Edit Graphical Backplotter

The 3D Mill / 2D Lathe backplotter handles your 3-axis Mill and 2-axis lathe CNC programs with step and continuous forward and reverse plotting. Edit the CNC program and the update is automatically reflected in the plot. Analyze the plot with dynamic zoom, pan, rotate and measuring functions. CIMCO Edit supports solid visualization of NC code with toolholder collision check and gouge detection.

Intelligent File Compare

CIMCO Edit features a fast and fully configurable side-by-side file compare, allowing the user to quickly identify CNC program changes (shown at 2:40 in video). The file compare identifies changed and deleted / inserted lines, but ignores trivial format changes like block renumbering and spacing. Differences are displayed one line at a time, all at once or printed side-by-side for offline review.

Options for Mazak Milling and Lathe code. Visualize the Mazatrol program in the same environment as the control.

Add Cimco Edit DNC or DNC Max to transmit the Mazatrol Files to and from your Mazak Mill or Lathe. Ideal when you need to clear out memory on your machine, and need to view those programs on your Windows PC.

DNC Communication for CNC Machines

Add on communication ports to Cimco edit for simple upload/download capability as well as drip feed*



*Drip feed capability requires a "Real COM" port adapter which mimics the real time rs232 COM port found on legacy Computer hardware. These are available in USB interface to single or multiple rs232 COM ports.
