Star NC Assist

The STAR NC ASSIST software is a template driven text editor tailored to suit Star machines. The software can run on all the latest Windows platforms and provides users with a simple conversational interface that allows CNC programs to be generated quickly and easily with the minimum of inputs.

The CNC code is generated automatically by clicking on the desired "template", users simply enter the co-ordinates, speeds and feeds etc where necessary and the software compiles the code into an easy to understand format to suit the selected machine.

Programmes can be checked using the "background plot" function, this simulates the tool path generated from the CNC code and ensures the programmed tool paths are correct to drawing. The software also provides a "multi-channel" display screen that can be used to display the programs in "synchronized" mode.
