OCTOPUZ 2.3 brings the ability to create circular paths from a series of linear points, while any circular paths can be analyzed and solved using the PathFinder suite of tools.
In OCTOPUZ 2.3, the new Circularize Path tool gives users the ability to create circular movements within a path statement, which can greatly reduce the total number of program points required for a robot to perform its desired motion.
Not only can users now create circular paths, but OCTOPUZ 2.3 brings an enhancement to the PathFinder suite of tools through support for analyzing and solving toolpaths containing circular motions, to calculate the ideal robot toolpath.
OCTOPUZ 2.3 offers a variety of new features that make creating, simulating, and analyzing paths simpler.
In an enhancement to the OCTOPUZ PathFinder suite of tools, PathSolver can now automatically solve for multi-turn errors present in a path statement, reducing the time and effort required to touch-up issue points manually.
The new Surfacing feature in the Program Editor automatically creates toolpaths that follow an entire surface with only a few button clicks.
New functionality for simulation playback gives users the ability to choose a path from which to start simulation and skip the playback of specified paths in simulation.
Improve how you import CAM paths into OCTOPUZ through enhancements to the PathImporter tool.
For users of DXF files, OCTOPUZ 2.3 provides support for automatically generating toolpaths from an imported DXF file.
PathImporter now displays the actual imported Path Name to provide better clarity when importing multiple CAM paths into OCTOPUZ.
An enhancement for PathImporter, if a user re-imports a CAM path into OCTOPUZ with no changes, their original calculated external values are maintained.
