Lathe Programming With the Ease and Flexibility of Mill Programming

MecSoft Corporation has done it again. VisualTURN is a program that automates lathe operations in the same graphic way that VisualMill has automated milling operations. You can start with a linear plot or a 3D model and work your way through a series of templates which enable you to generate accurate toolpaths in standard G-code adapted to the requirements of your particular CNC lathe. Features include roughing, finishing, groove roughing, groove finishing, threading, curve following, parting-off, knowledge base loading and saving, tool path viewing, fixture offset operations, drilling, tapping, boring, reverse boring, toolpath animation, cut material simulation, and part-to-stock comparison.

VisualTURN’s toolpaths are based on the profile of your part, VisualTURN will either use a linear profile imported with the part, or derive the line from an intersection of a vertical plane with your 3D part. Then it’s just a matter of choosing or defining the tools you wish to use, and setting the parameters of the various turning operations you need to go through to produce it on a CNC lathe. Postprocessors are provided for a wide range of standards, and VisualTURN’s configurable postprocessor generator makes it easy to customize posts for the rare machines that aren’t on the list. Versions of the program are available that plug into SolidWorks, Rhino, and Alibre Design.
