Text editor for CNC code (G-code) with 3D toolpath simulation

Text editor for CNC code (G-code) with 3D toolpath simulation

tkCNC Editor is a text editor, specially designed for editing of CNC code (G-code) for CNC machines. It is used by CNC programmers and operators for fast editing and verification of NC code. tkCNC Editor supports G-code syntax highlighting, multiple undo/redo, print preview, fast block renumbering, generation of circular and rectangular point patterns, smart templates, mirroring, translation, rotation of coordinates, 3D toolpath simulation...

Other features:

- Fast points import from AutoCAD

- Generator of circular and rectangular point patterns (coordinates)

- Smart CNC code templates - smart reuse of your CNC code

- Various operations with CNC code registers such as: mirroring, renumbering, translation, 2D and 3D rotation, mathematical operations (+,-,*,/), sorting etc.

- Improved conversion of CNC code from polar to Cartesian system and Cartesian to Polar

- Absolute to incremental and incremental to absolute conversion

- option for reversing toolpath direction

- CNC code registers swapping

- CNC code registers sorting (order in block)

- Stripping of block numbers

- improved 3D toolpath simulation/verification with possibility of toolpath export in DXF file

- new machine wizard for definition of new machines

- Degrees conversion from Degrees/Minutes/Seconds format to decimal format and vice versa

- Automated CNC documents merging

- 'QuickCalc' function implemented in text editor window for quick calculations

tkCNC Editor version 3.0 has implemented these functions:

- MDI (Multiple document interface) – allows editing of multiple CNC documents

- Improved and fast G-code syntax highlighting

- Unlimited Undo/Redo

- Print Preview – Preview CNC documents preview before printing

- All standard text editor functions such as Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Select All...

- Fast CNC Program renumbering

- Find/Replace function with special features for CNC code searching
