Animate

The Animate Cutter function in KeyMachininst provides a quick tool motion animation at user controlled speed in wireframe display within the KeyCreator viewport.

Quick Verify

KeyMachinist provides a simple "VCR-control" shaded graphical animation pop-up window powered by MetaCut Utilities. This animation shows removal of material from user-defined stock based on selected toolpaths. Cut faces are color-coded to highlight tool changes and potential problems.

 

Red faces in this verify window indicate a severe gouge
MetaCut Utilities

Most of the verification tools provided with KeyMachinist are found in the MetaCut Utilities V3 (MCU) program from Northwood Designs. The MCU program reads G-code NC files and provides powerful viewing, editing, and analysis capabilities.

 

The MCU interface windows simulaniously display 3D grpahics, G-code text, and tool calls of the same position in the program.

MCU provides numerous additional utilities such as reverse posting of toolpaths to polylines, crash detection, re-start program from specified line number, cutting time, etc.
