Inplot - Program Editing with Cam Tools

What happens when you need to make changes to the tool path but don’t want to have to reprogram the whole thing? For added ability in editing CNC programs Inplot offers special CAM functions to add or modify tool paths directly from the CAD geometry. With this feature, you can move the tool around on the screen with the mouse and obtain the current coordinates and then insert them into the editor. Not only free hand points, but by clicking on a CAD element, you can put the tool tangent to lines and arcs and output the position.

CAM TOOLS
Point you can position the tool to cursor or an endpoint, center point, midpoint, etc. Tangent Pick an element and the tool is put tangent to the endpoint. Arc This CAM function creates toolpath around an arc. Pick the start of the arc on the side to be cut. Gets a G02 or G03 move from the start to end tangent points with I,J,K,R values that can be inserted into the editor. Intersection Will move the tool tangent to two lines or arcs. Arc Intersection Make an arc to a non-tangent line. Corner Output and arc around a sharp corner. Tangent-Point Move the tool tangent to a line or arc at a place that is nearest to whatever point you pick. Tangent-Drag Allows you to pick a line or arc and drag the tool anywhere along it, always staying tangent to the entity, outputting the coordinates.
For simple parts you can you can make the whole program in Inplot. Write programs with subprograms and variables and loops and jumps. And you need it for those complicated parts that need special moves in the toolpaths. When you press these buttons, the current CAM position is entered on the line the cursor is on. If the line has that address, the value is changed, if not, then it is added. Offset You can have the tool tangent but stay away a certain amount.
