TopCAM2D is a programming system for turning and milling, integrated into a 2D-CAD-system for 2½D multi-sided milling machining and complete turnmill machining with driven tools and opposite spindle. The CAM section uses the TopCAT tool management and the MTS set-up dialog.
Generating the programs is done through a simple, interactive dialog. The workplan with the machining steps is wwritten automatically. The powerful MTS command code is used internally as a control-neutral format, which is converted by postprocessors into the target control NC code.
Due to the automated TopMill/TopTurn setup sheet creation and the inclusion of postprocessors, it is possible to simulate the created programs in TopMill or TopTurn in the programming code of the target control after every intermediate machining step.
