To mitigate operation errors and enhance cut quality, by default, the Auto-Lift mode is now set to a 30º breaklines angle.
Access default Auto-Lift settings in Configuration>Machine>Cut Configuration.
Automatic Conversion of Notch Tools to Points
Notch tools are now automatically converted to points without the need for manual adjustments when changing cut methods. This improvement enhances workflow efficiency.
Access the model notches settings in Configuration>Machine>Cut Configuration
Blade Replacement Process Guidance
A new button simplifies blade replacement by resetting all local model settings to default during the process.
To access this new feature in the Cut Tab, simply left-click on the desired tool to access the local tool settings.
Trim cut using a different cut template
The latest update introduces the capability to use a different cut template for trim cuts. Users now have the flexibility to select an alternate cut template specifically designed for trim operations.
To access the Trim options, navigate to Configuration>Operation>Trim Material
Enhanced Common Line Removal at Material Border
Common lines from parts placed on material border are now ignored if option activated Now, users have the option to remove lines within a specified tolerance that are common with the material border, providing a more precise cut.
Access default Common Line Removing settings in Configuration>Machine>Cut Configuration.
Flexibility in Internal Line Cutting Direction
Enhance functionality by allowing the change of cutting direction for internal lines with a simple click or double-click action.
To check the cut configurations, navigate to Simulation in Cut tab.
Enhanced Line Smoothing for Model Importing
Introduce a new functionality that enables users to smooth lines during model importing by automatically adding extra points, enhancing the cut quality.
Enable the addition of smooth lines in MindCUT by creating a rule set within the Model Importer.
Material expand on two materials simultaneously
Boosting productivity, the latest update allows for the simultaneous auto-expansion of two materials, offering increased efficiency and workflow flexibility.
To configure the Expand Material option go to Configuration>Workflow>Process
Add functionality "by sketch” in Insert Defects tool
The Insert Defects mode has been improved with the addition of a drawing option, allowing users to mark defect areas by sketching. This enhancement provides greater control and precision in identifying and managing defects in materials.
To check this new improvement: navigate to Edit Material> Insert Defect By image
Added Support for New Canon SDK
The application now supports the latest Canon SDK, enabling seamless integration with new Canon cameras for enhanced functionality and compatibility.
Improved process during ICC Calibration
During ICC calibration, the beam now moves a few centimeters away from the material when the message to remove excess material appears. This enhancement provides technicians with a safety margin, making the process of removing material easier and more secure.
To access ICC calibration menu, navigate to Configuration>Machine>Hardware> ICC
Enhanced ICC Material Edge Alignment
Improved performance with dense point sets and added the capability to realign materials after contour alignment, providing greater flexibility and accuracy.
To check this new improvement: navigate to Using Machine> By Contour (IC)
Improved Efficiency in Renest Process
Enhanced renest feature for roll materials, improving efficiency and reducing material waste. Optimized algorithm fills empty spaces with smaller parts, maximizing material utilization and productivity.
To access Renest options, navigate to Configuration>Workflow>Options
Improved Nesting Efficiency with kit orientation lock
Enhance nesting efficiency by introducing the “kit orientation lock” feature, which allows for better orientation and placement of suit pieces of different sizes, optimizing material usage and reducing waste.
To access Nesting settings, navigate to Configuration>Nesting>Auto-Nesting
Exclude "Selvage" for Validation
Exclude the material selvage from the validation process of point detection (blue points) by introducing a new parameter (in mm) to exclude points detected within the material's selvage margin.
Configure the Salvage margin in the Material Settings>Pattern Matching> Tolerance
