About this app

A software simulator of a numerical control (CNC) lathe is an educational methodological development intended for basic familiarization of novice machine building specialists with the principles of programming parts turning operations using standard GM code (Fanuc System A).

The basis of the three-dimensional simulation model is a lathe with a classical arrangement of units, equipped with a CNC system, an eight-position turret, a three-jaw chuck, a tailstock, a coolant supply system and other machinery. Material processing is performed on two axes in the horizontal plane.

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 functionality of the simulator: preparation of texts of control programs of turning operations in the format of a standard GM code, checking control programs for syntax and technological errors, playing on the computer screen (or other computing device) three-dimensional graphic models of the main components of the lathe machine and metal-cutting tools to simulate the process of turning metal, the three-dimensional visualization of the process of forming parts during turning on the compiled control programs, visualization of toolpaths, implementation of interactive user interaction with the simulation model of technological equipment.

Worth paid! If you're at all interested in CNC !!TRY IT!! Learn; Draft; Proof; as well.. Simulate CNC! Even if only conceptually. Developer updated to resolve most issues I had with the app. Now the only thing I have are issues that are device specific and I'm communicating with the developer about it (mainly editor input outside of virtual machine pad.)

Hello! Thanks! Your comments are helpful. I'm working on an update now. UPD: yes, I have already solved these problems (large 3D view of the part, measurement function and removed the advertisement from the save dialog. It remains to implement a number of tasks. I plan to publish the update in early April.

This is a very very good app and very educational.... But I only wish that we had better control over the diameter and length of the workpiece, right now it only increases and decreases in increments of 5mm but I think it should have finer control over that like 1mm increments... Please add that feature. Otherwise the app is absolutely great. Very happy with it!!

(at the time of writing this, first week of cnc gcode) I'm having trouble with G71/cycle pockets. If the app had built in pocket instructions in the [?] area for +/- X coordinates that would help A LOT. So far, besides that small issue, it's alright!! It is very good looking. Frequent glitches but just reset contour.
