SolutionWare has released the latest version of GeoPath for Everyday Parts. GeoPath version 5.1 has simplified many of its programming techniques, the company says.
GeoPath has added more advanced ways of selecting geometry for everyday parts and has developed drill/hole processes that enables programmers to select multiple tools, at one time, for multiple sized holes.
Enhancements include template management programming, the ability to create programs for specific cuts to be used on different programs, then recall them for future use; the ability to display surfaces with a line through center in both directions; coolant controls; the ability to select multiple contours to be milled; and an upgraded layers window.
Dynamic Tool Management enables the user to set the tool library to various materials, as well as materials with different speeds and feeds for different CNC machines. When the program is changed to run on a different CNC, it will automatically read the tooling, feeds, and speeds and adjust them to the library for the different CNC. If the tools do not match, it will give users the option to select a different tool.
