CNC Milling Simulator is a multimedia application designed to provide a basic introduction to beginner mechanical engineering professionals with the principles of programming operations for milling parts using a standard (ISO) G-code.
The main task of the application is syntactic analysis (parsing) of the code of control programs in order to build a graphical model of cutting tool trajectories in three-dimensional space.
Field of application of the software product: educational process using computer technology: laboratory lessons of students in computer classes, distance learning, demonstration support of lecture material in the group of areas of training and specialties: «Metallurgy, Engineering and Material Processing».
The main functions of the application: editing the code of the control programs of the milling machine, operations with files of control programs, setting the geometric parameters of the cutting tool, continuous/step-by-step execution of blocks of control programs, three-dimensional visualization of tool movements in the working space of the machine, simplified visualization of the machined surface of the part, calculation of processing modes, a quick reference guide to using G-code.
Type of target computing device and supported platform: IBM – compatible PC running Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh PC running MacOS, mobile devices based on Android and iOS operating systems.
Multi-platform support allows you to use the software on various computing devices, including interactive whiteboards, smartphones, tablet and desktop computers, which, in turn, increases the flexibility and mobility of the educational process, corresponding to the modern level of education informatization.
The simulator can be delivered with installation on one workplace (the user license with issue of registration keys) and with installation on unlimited number of workplaces (the corporate license for the organization).
