Toolpath  Output

       After the Toolpath  is created, you can save it. Various file formats are provided by Ucancam post processor file.


        Menu【Toolpath > Toolpath  output】                                  Toolpath  Bar 



        1. Select the toolpath

        2. Click MenuToolpath > Toolpath output.

        3. Set the parameters.

  4. Click Browse to select the toolpath to be saved.

  5. Name the file and  click Save button.


Post processor file: normally select “General CNC” is OK, if you want output the Toolpath  in inch. Or your control system has special requirement, you shoul modify the post processor, for example moidify the “UNITS <mm>” to “UNITS <inch>” in the post processor file. If you need more help, you can contact with us.

Origin point: is the origin of the tool before machining is carried out.

       For example:

originlower-leftuser lower-left the processing sheet

1. Custom: X, Y, Z are set to 0 (the origin based on lower-left corner of the layout), the actual machining position shown in Figure

                        Figure 1                                 Figure 2

2. Base on feature points : You can select the position of the five points(A,B,C,D,E) , The location of the machining area is different according to the feature points selected.feature point

           In order to make origin setting more flexible and the engraving more convenient, the function “Based on feature points” is available in Ucancam.

       3. Save as before: Automatic memory the previous path position, and even restart the software.

    Safe Z height: is the distance between the tool position and the material surface when the tool is traveling above the material.

    Speed-down Z height: is the distance between the material surface and the position tool beginning to decelerate.


           Up & Down: In case several Toolpath s are needed when machining an object, then you need to arrange the order of the Toolpath .
