Fikus for 2D cutting & routing

The solution for NC cutting & routing programming

Quick, flexible and functional

Fikus Visualcam offers a quick, flexible and functional solution for programming NC cutting machines. Fikus allows to generate the machining programs quick and easily because of its intuitive interface and advanced specific functions for every machines type.

All the cutting machine technologies are supported with specific parameter tables and postprocessors. Fikus is a complete solution for cutting parts by means of a laser, oxyefuel, waterjet, plasma machine or plotter. The cutting options with multiple contours compose the basic system. The technology and stop points are placed graphically and interactively on the screen.

Powerful 2D CAD

Fikus enables the creation and modification of required geometry, as well as importing geometry from other CAD systems via IGES,DXF or PLT. In addition, it provides an unlimited undo/redo, intelligent trimming, print with preview, as well as specific gear creation functions.

  • Functions to generate and modify the wire geometry.
  • Contours extraction and surfaces handling.
  • Creation of gears, texts and geometry dimensioning.
  • Quick functions bar for move, copy, scale and modify the geometry.

Easy to use and learn

The CAM Manager leads the user through the logical sequential process of the programming, from defining the geometry and creating the part to cut, to the process definition and calculation.

Fikus for NC Cutting & Routing has been specifically designed to produce cut geometries programs easily and quickly, with dynamic OpenGL rendered graphics and a intuitive interface, making the learning process easy.

Efficient wizards for saving time

Advanced functions and machining wizards

Fikus offers many tool designed to increase productivity and reduce drastically the production time. Templates, customized databases or technological points help user to reduce the production time.

Fikus Visualcam offer functions to copy, duplicate, rotate or invert the geometry generating polar or rectangular matrix. Fikus allows also the cutting optimization, customization of the cutting order and, optionally, a powerful nesting module.

Working process optimization

All the advanced functions included in Fikus, as templates, customizable databases, technological points, cutting path optimization or transforming functions allow the user increase drastically the productivity.

Specific functions for any technology

Fikus for 2D cutting & routing machines includes all the advanced functions with specific parameter tables for any technology (water pressure, abrasive, penetration, cutting width, laser diameter or power for laser machines, etc.) and dedicated post-processors.

Visual machining

The final part (2D) can be shown in a 3D realistic way as a solid or as a wireframe, together with the cutting tool. The machining simulation is shown as solid to offer a realistic view of the process and final result.

Calculate and simulate

Let now Fikus Visualcam do all the calculations in just seconds and you already can simulate all the cuts in your computer. The Path Simulator will show the part, the material and the wire as a solid.

Post-process and verify

Finally, you can generate your machine programs using the Fikus Visualcam dedicated postprocessors. You can also verify the G-Code program with Ficed, the CNC program editor, and even send it directly to the machine.

Reports

Finally, you can generate all the documentation needed for the shop floor, according to your preferences, including information as wire threading points and cutting order.
