CIMCO Edit 6 is the editor-of-choice for
CIMCO Edit 6 is the editor-of-choice for professional CNC programmers who demand a reliable, full-featured and professional editing and communication tool. CIMCO Edit 6 is the latest version of the most popular CNC program editor on the market. With over 80,000 licenses distributed in the past few years, CIMCO Edit is the editor-of-choice for professional CNC programmers who demand a full-featured and reliable, cost-effective professional editing and communication tool.
Full-featured CNC editor
CIMCO Edit 6 provides a comprehensive set of essential editing tools necessary for meeting the demands of modern CNC program editing.
It has no program size limitations and includes CNC code specific options such as line numbering / renumbering, character handling and XYZ range finder. It also features math functions including basic math, rotate, mirror, tool compensation, and translate. CIMCO Edit 6 offers all the functions expected from an editor including drag-and-drop text editing. Best of all CIMCO Edit 6 is completely configurable and is easily adapted to any existing CNC program editing environment
Faster editing with NC-Assistant
The NC-Assistant makes editing NC code faster and easier than ever. Point at any M or G code and the NC-Assistant will identify the code allowing you to modify values using an interactive interface linked to the CNC code. Input the desired values for any register and the NC-Assistant updates the CNC code automatically.
The NC-Assistant in CIMCO Edit 6 allows you to quickly insert and edit complex cycles and operations. CIMCO Edit 6 includes built-in cycles and macros for the most common operations such as program start, program stop and tool change. You can also record or create custom cycles and macros for the operations most common to your own specific setups and applications.
The 3D Mill / 2D Lathe backplotter handles your 3-axis Mill and 2-axis lathe CNC programs with step and continuous forward and reverse plotting. Edit the CNC program and the update is automatically reflected in the plot. Analyze the plot with dynamic zoom, pan, rotate and measuring functions. CIMCO Edit 6 supports solid visualization of NC code with toolholder collision check and gouge detection.
Intelligent File Compare
CIMCO Edit 6 features a fast and fully configurable side-by-side file compare, allowing the user to quickly identify CNC program changes. The file compare identifies changed and deleted / inserted lines, but ignores trivial format changes like block renumbering and spacing. Differences are displayed one line at a time, all at once or printed side-by-side for offline review
CNC Communications and DNC
CIMCO Edit 6 includes DNC capabilities for reliable RS-232 communications with a variety of CNC controls. With the DNC option you can send and receive CNC programs to multiple machines simultaneously from inside CIMCO Edit 6.
Support for Mazatrol Files
View Mazatrol Program files directly in CIMCO Edit 6 instead of on the Mazak Control in the workshop. Quickly verify and review program changes with Mazatrol file-compare.
CNC-Calc 2 - 2D CAD add-in for CIMCO Edit 6
CNC-Calc is a fully featured 2D CAD solution that works inside CIMCO Edit 6. This add-on is a fast and effective solution for solving problems with complex 2D geometry. Users can draw or import (DXF) 2D geometry, specify cut depths, lead-in, lead-out, and other tool path variables and quickly generate CNC code in ISO and other conversational formats for contours and drilling.
DNC RS-232 Communications
Reliable, configurable DNC RS-232 communications. NOTE: With CIMCO Edit you may optionally purchase up to 6, 1-Port DNC-Links for simultaneous communications with up to 6 CNCs.
3D Mill/2D Lathe Open-GL Backplotter
Excellent 3D Mill / 2D Lathe Open-GL Back Plotter (ENHANCED in v5) - plot your 3-Axis Mill and 2-Axis lathe CNC programs inside CIMCO Edit with step and continuous forward and reverse synchronized plotting.
Cycle/Macro Support for Complex Cycles
Cycle/Macro Support (NEW in v5) - cycle/macro support allows users to quickly add/edit complex cycles and operations.
CNC-Calc 2 - 2D CAD for CIMCO Edit 6
CNC-Calc is a fully featured 2D CAD solution that works inside CIMCO Edit 6. This add-on is a fast and effective solution for solving problems with complex 2D geometry.
Simulate Unique Haas G Codes
Supports unique Haas G codes in the simulation of toolpaths. Commonly used Haas cycles include G12/G13 for circular pockets, G70/G71/G72 for drill patterns, G150 for pocket milling, G53 for tool safe position and M97 for local subroutines.
Side-by-Side File Compare
Side-by-Side File Compare (ENHANCED in v5) - our file compare is fast and fully configurable allowing users to choose whether to view differences one line/section at a time or all at once. Our file compare even supports side-by-side printing for offline review.
