A black marker shows what program line is currently producing the cut displayed in the rendered view as you single-step through a G-code program.

The cutter is displayed as a wire frame (not shown here). The dialog in the upper right lists the coordinate data for each cut.

Part geometry can be easily measured when in plan view.

Measurements include: section thickness, distance and elevation between features, circle center and radius, and more...

Tool Geometry defined by adding commented statements to the post:

;TOOL/MILL, Diameter, Corner radius, Height, Taper Angle

CutViewer also provides interactive dialogs to add the Stock and Tool information directly to the G-code file.

The program also provides a tool database for your standard tools.

CutViewer uses a simple text file with an .nci extension to configure CutViewer for specific style of post. Several sample *.nci files are provided with the program.

Please see the Readme_Mill.doc in the "\CutViewer Mill" directory for more information on creating custom configurations.

Each configuration file added to the CutViewer's install directory will appear in the "Files of type" combo-box list.

CutViewer customization files are automatically loaded by selecting the appropriate file filter in the drop-down list.

To try this: Select the Standard G-code (*.nc) filter from the list shown the load the file Demo1.nc. You will see a block of material appear. Press the run button to see the block cut.

We use CutViewer in our own shop. We like it because we are able to view a post from TahlCAM immediately in CutViewer. TahlCAM can post the additional comments needed by CutViewer to describe the stock and tool sizes used by the animation. Of the tool-path simulation programs that we tried CutViewer was the easiest to use.

CutViewer is a 32-bit program for Windows 95 and later. Any computer that will run Windows well will also run CutViewer. The latest version of CutViewer_Mill.zip is dated 1/22/03. To install, run the setup.exe contained in zip file from a temporary directory.
