Mission
Development of a new version of woodWOP, an application developed at Homag for the programming of CNC machines in the woodworking industry.

Application features:
  • 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.

  • Solution
    Development of woodWOP 6, an application combining:
  • A Sketcher based on Open CASCADE Technology
  • Homag-CAM 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.

  • Results
    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…

  • (*) Import operations were enhanced with DXF Import / Export - an advanced software component available from OPEN CASCADE.



    "Open CASCADE Technology allows us to re-use high-quality code for CAD functionality. We can focus our effort on the CAM part of the application."
