NUMROTO is widely used in the market. Many millions of tool data sets are stored on these CNC systems. For both existing and new tools, NUMROTO Draw creates product documentation that is realistic, unambiguous and of uniform quality. The documentation is generated on a largely automatic basis, saving time and money.
In NUMROTO Draw, the outline of the tool and the drawing header are generated automatically. As a result, it makes sense to produce drawings even for small runs and resharpening. The functionality has now been substantially extended, enabling the software to be used for very complex tools with multiple cut views. This product documentation is perfect, even for end customers with high standards in terms of certification.
NUMROTO Draw creates this product documentation from the same data actually used to grind the corresponding tool.
And since NUMROTO Draw uses the full NUMROTO infrastructure, it can also accept detailed views of any kind from the 3D simulation module. All formatting information is stored in the corresponding tool data set in the NUMROTO database. As a result, NUMROTO's backup concept also ensures that a backup of this data set will be saved.
Thanks to this strategy, any users who have used NUMROTO in the past can apply NUMROTO Draw to their existing tools without additional expense.
NUMROTO Draw can also be used by ’non-grinders‘. Because the grinding process is kept strictly separate, the manual input entered into NUMROTO Draw has no effect on the grinding program and thus does not affect the grinding results.
Standard dimensions are generated automatically. If desired, users can adjust the dimensions according to their requirements. Additional information such as units and tolerances, plus color and font attributes, can be assigned to each dimension. Headings and additional dimensions can be selected freely.
Users also have a great deal of freedom in laying out the drawing. They can design the document header, including a company logo, on a customer-specific basis. All fields can be edited at will and the tool designation can be copied directly from the NUMROTO database. In addition, a separate table with parameters of the illustrated tool can be placed on the drawing.
The format of the output can be selected from A4 to oversize, depending on the types of printers connected to the PC. User-defined page sizes can also be configured.
For further processing in merchandise management or CAD systems, export formats such as XPS, PDF and prospectively also DXF are available.
NUMROTO Draw is largely intuitive to use. Even beginners can be ’let loose‘ on the software without problems. The system can easily and efficiently be introduced within half a day.
