Far beyond toolpath calculation and simulation

ModuleWorks offers several utilites to cover a wide range of needs beyond basic toolpath calculation and simulation. ModuleWorks utilities has features for fixing 3D meshes, simulating stock and editing NC code to fill any gaps in automated CAD/CAM processes.

Stock manager

The Stock Manager tracks and stores the current status of the rest material. It enables users to obtain the rest material stock for consecutive toolpath calculations or an intermediate stock model for the simulation. The stock manager can handle multiple workpieces and complex multi-stock simulations.

NC EDITOR​

Being able to view and make simple changes to an NC file is very useful on the shop floor. The ModuleWorks NC Editor is a powerful shop floor editing tool that can be easily configured for almost any CNC control.

The color coded textual and graphical view of the NC-code and an NC-code orientated set of navigation and editing features make it easy to validate and fine tune NC programs.

Mesh Toolkit

The Mesh Toolkit is a collection of functions for creating and modifying triangle meshes. Originating from internal use during the development of our own algorithms, we saw the benefits these functions could bring to our customers and decided to condense them into a product.

Several mesh healing, slicing, and generation algorithms are included in this new package. The clean and easy-to-use programming interface lets you get the maximum benefit out of the Mesh Toolkit for your own applications.

Post Processor Framework

The Post Processor Framework (PPF) lets you script the NC-output for any custom machine tool. PPF uses ModuleWorks MultiXPost as a front-end component to resolve any machine kinematic. Alternatively, you can use the API to integrate the software into your own toolpath environment, independent of the ModuleWorks toolpath calculation.

Job Setup

Job Setup is a data interface between any CAM system and the machine controller. The information for every toolpath is stored in the CAM system. For each operation you need to know the number and type of tools, parts, fixtures and toolpaths as well as the actual machine and machine components. This data can be exported to Job Setup and transferred to the controller to enable users to visualize the machining process.
