Transfer production to CNC machine Homag a Weeke via Pripravto and WoodWOP
Připravto currently has postprocessor for WoodWOP, which allows direct connection to machine.
This article continues from starting czech article. So as stated in start for pass data for production to CNC machine HOMAG or Weeke you do not need anything like Alphacam or DXF. If you have account Profi you are now able to use command in Settings > Addons > cnc_woodwop_export. This allows you to choose if all products or just selected product should be transfered to MPR format for WoodWOP. These machines are quite common for joinery bussines, so it is quite simple to prepare outputs for them. Common machine names are BHX or Venture.
Sorry that images are still in Czech language. We will try to update them.
Here you can see how to easily transfer data from prepared data to production. Also video shows you how to open that NC generated code directly in WoodWOP.
We support all base operations, like shapes, making drilling, cuts or cuts to sides of parts. Generated program is native and it is possible to directly change it in machine. Program is generated for every part separated as most parts are unique. If your machine contains barcode scanner it is possible to use it directly from pripravto for searching for part in directory. Parts are named as parts in product.
