Aerotech’s CADFusion is designed to bridge the gap between part drawings and motion control. Users need only import a vector-based DXF drawing into this easy-to-use environment to see the resulting tool path graphically on CADFusion’s canvas. Upon import, CADFusion automatically parses the incoming pattern into well-defined shapes and entities, which can be easily manipulated by the user to adjust their size, rotation and position on the canvas. Upon drawing export, CADFusion compiles a full motion control program, automatically inserting user-defined initialization and process trigger events. Program automation is enhanced by CADFusion’s ability to insert user-defined code at the beginning and end of any auto-generated motion program, and laser/process definitions and firing events can be specifically tailored by the user and called automatically by CADFusion during program compilation.
