(Basics) Toolpath Planning

To facilitate the machining, a reasonable toolpath should be process efficient and time saving, meanwhile get other benefits like minimize waste, avoid potential tip-up risk, reduce

thermal-affected deformation etc. Toolpath in CypCut mainly resulted by nesting and sorting operation, the former one decides parts arrangement and the later one decides

cutting sequence.

Parts and Sheet

A part in CypCut has elements of part geometry, layer, part name, quantity, dimension, toolpath and technique features, which all are what-you-see-is-what-you-get style.

A sheet in CypCut has elements of sheet geometry, sheet name, dimension, material and thickness. You can create a sheet by parameter setting or select a shape from drawing board.   

 

Nesting

Nesting strategy is the approach the program take to create a nest. After you add parts in parts list, click button open ‘auto nest’ window to set nesting strategy.    

 

Sorting

CypCut has featured strategies to approach sorting that fits for part geometries of different lay out. You can also manually adjust sorting result.

 

View and Simulate Toolpath

After finish nesting and sorting, you can check the toolpath and sequence statically by Home > View sequence tag, toolpath and position path. Or you can simulate the cutting path

dynamically. Simulation only demonstrates sequence to process drawing, doesn’t execute any motion commands in machine.
