The PlanetCNC TNG software is designed to fully utilize the advanced features of the controller hardware while remaining user-friendly. Even those new to CNC machining can easily employ advanced functions. The software offers a wide range of configuration options for maximum flexibility, integration, and customization.
One of the key features of the software is its simulation capabilities, which are designed for fast verification of NC programs. The simulation can run automatically, under keyboard or mouse control, or by selecting individual lines in an NC program. Users can zoom, pan, or rotate the preview without interrupting the simulation.
The software also offers useful G-code manipulation and transformation functions. G-code can be bookmarked, copied, pasted, and edited. It can also be shifted, scaled, mirrored, and rotated. Code re-mapping for foam cutter applications is also available.
Additionally, there are many functions to assist with the creation of toolpaths. A wide range of content can be directly imported or converted to an NC program, providing users with a comprehensive and user-friendly interface to control their machines.
