Advanced Robotic Technology
has released version 2.0 of its toolpathing and nesting software, Toolshop.
This Windows-based software package allows users to draw and import components using standard CAD tools. Using automated features, users can apply machining toolpaths and nest into material, ready for output to their CNC router or plasma cutter.
The software can be fully integrated in existing processes and manages all necessary data such as CAD drawings, parts libraries or customer data.
It features a full remote material library on the company network that allows the entry of sheet and plate stock levels, which are automatically subtracted when a nest is created on that sheet.
The extended material database can be hosted on a central server, so multiple Toolshop users can simultaneously get up-to-date information of current stock levels.
The intelligent post processor is suitable for different machines, brands and processes including plasma cutters, lasers, routers or water jets.
