Development of a new version of woodWOP, an application developed at Homag for the programming of CNC machines in the woodworking industry.
Parametric sketcher including objects such as points, segments, circles, ellipses and b-spline curves. Fillet and chamfer extend this list of sketcher objects.
Capability to change the Z coordinate of 2D objects (extrusion of contours in 2.5D space).
Machining macro operations (drilling, grooving, routing, etc.).
Checking and control methods.
Import* and Export operations.
Development of woodWOP 6, an application combining:
A Sketcher based on Open CASCADE Technology
Open CASCADE Application Framework for the parametric sketcher and CAM data model.
Open CASCADE 3D viewer for visualization of the geometry and machining traces.
woodWOP 6 was introduced to the market in May 2009.
woodWOP 6 provides CAD basic functions for the design of machining processes
woodWOP 6 increases programming security through a 3D view of workpieces,
processing and clamping equipment.
OPEN CASCADE provides the Technology to go further in CAD/CAM functionalities.
woodWOP 6 marks the beginning of a new era in design tools applied to wood processing…
