Alphacam's Router modules are Microsoft Windows compliant, allowing familiar and intuitive operation of the software products. This makes the generation of NC code an easy task and helps to ensure the quality of the code.
Alphacam Router is available at the following levels:
Essential is the ideal entry level product for basic 2D CNC work. This module offers the fundamental tools required for CAD/CAM production, including nesting of parts from the screen, and 3D Engraving.
Standard is the perfect product for shops and subcontractors. This module offers all the functionality of the Essential package with additional support for nesting of parts from a nest list, horizontal machining, reusable machining data (Machining Styles), and much more.
Advanced is targeted at the manufacturer who works with complex, free-form patterns and tools. In addition to the functionality of the lower level modules, this module offers complex 3D machining strategies, solid model importing and feature extraction, constrained parametric part creation and much more.
This module also incorporates Microsoft's Visual Basic for Applications and is suited for those that can utilize Alphacam's add-on or custom built applications and automation tools.
