Hypertherm’s 10.1 update for its TurboNest and NestMaster CAD/CAM nesting programs is said to enable increased cut quality and productivity for metal fabrication and cutting applications. The update includes several added features and enhancements, and is available to all TurboNest and NestMaster subscribers through the company’s website. 
 
The entry-level NestMaster program now supports Unicode fonts for CAD drawings that contain text. In addition, the program enables multiple drawings to be open simultaneously in 2D CAD.
 
Meanwhile, the intermediate TurboNest program now supports native AutoCAD fonts (SHX) and Windows system fonts, including TrueType, OpenType and PostScript for CAD drawings that contain text. TurboNest also features an enhanced 2D CAD cleanup program for quick changes to CAD drawings before they are added to a part list.

  • Programming A Robot The Way You Program A CNC Machine Tool

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
