Machine ID: Machine orientation

  • World CoordSys is always with Z vertically UP
  • Machine orientation (vertical, horizontal) is defined in World CoordSys

Turret: New style of station creation in VMID

  • Easy way to create multiple stations in VMID

MCO: Calculate all related operations when MCO changes

  • Automatic calculation of changed MCO‘s related operations

MCO: Move Part by turret or any other device

  • Possibility  to move the CAM-part from Table to Table by turret or any other device

Tooltable: new mounting interface

  • New tool mounting interface – based on station and device CoordSys
  • Shown as it actually looks in CNC Machine

Tooltable: Show station name

  • Show station name in the List of stations in Tooltable

Update material boundary (for mill-turn)

  • Take into account HSR/HSM operations when updating stock for further turning operations

Definition of Cross Control

  • By default – cross control is always turned on
  • *.VMID allows to cancel Cross Control (access to devices from opposite channel), if it is not supported by the machine

Channels definition in VMID

  • Custom channels definition
  • Definition of channels by sub-machines, not turrets
  • Enables synchronisation process between tables (Swiss Type lathes)
