PDFOther Features

WORKNC is renowned for its automatic functions and supreme ease of use.
WORKNC's automated functions allow users to generate toolpaths easily and automatically.

Automatic Geometry Preparation

  • Unlimited size and number of surfaces
  • Detection of non-machined areas
  • Handling of twisted and triangular surfaces
  • Handling of discontinuities
  • Handling of superimposed surfaces
  • Linking of all surface elements
  • Collision checking on surfaces edges and corners.

Batch Mode Calculations

As you may know, most other CAM softwares lock up the entire user interface on a given job. WORKNC is so flexible you can work on multiple jobs simultaneously.

Tool Holder Collision Detection

Create you tool holder library dynamically in WORKNC. Use defined tool holders for checking collisions between the holders and part geometries.
WORKNC allows you to select your tool holder and advises the required tool length to use. Or you can input the known tool length and WORKNC will automatically split your cutter paths into logical portions for various available cutters!
The toolpath is automatically modified to avoid potential tool holder collisions with the part geometry, based on the use of a shorter tool length.
The complementary cutter path can now be milled with a longer tool.

Tool Library

Create a WORKNC library for your own tools and for tools available from your suppliers' catalogues.  The Tool Library database allows you to define new tools and manage existing ones for WORKNC.
A wide variety of parameters can be associated to each tool in the library.
Users can save time and be more productive by automatically loading these parameters into the current toolpath parameters menu when the required tool is selected.

Machining Sequences

Standardize your processes, on-the-fly, with WORKNC's "Standard Machining Sequences"... 
WORKNC keeps a record of your series of cutter paths, holder collision checks, tolerances, tools, etc... so you can use the information again-and-again on similar jobs.

Toolpath Setup Sheets

Data output and journal files pertaining to each job is automatically output from WORKNC. Customization of desired output documentation is also possible.

STL Files

WORKNC reads binary and ASCII stereolithography, "STL", files quickly. STL files are commonly used for rapid prototyping. WORKNC can also refine the STL data for optimal cutting.  All WORKNC toolpath types are supported for the machining of scan data.
Mechanically scanned data is also supported and optimized with WORKNC.
