CNC Backplot Editor & more

with lots of Tools for CNC Experts.

FILOU-MX is a CNC-Backplot-Editor with a modular toolbox containing lots of tools for CNC Experts.

With the powerful CNC editor, a CNC Profi can edit, optimize, verify, export, analyze and transmit his CNC programs to the machine.

FILOU-MX can handle nearly unlimited filesizes. The Limits are set by the resources. The CNC-Backplot-Editor can open multiple files at a time with the ability to cut, copy, and paste between them.

In every Backplot you can zoom, turn, etc. (on the left picture 4 CNC programs).

In the CNC Backplot the 3D-Display of toolpaths can be, turned, zoomed or moved.

Display CNC Programs as movementlines graphicaly on your Display. Thats why the Backplot is called Viewer in FILOU-MX. In the Animation the CNC toolpaths are displayed sentence by sentence. The editor and animation can be kept in sync.

CNC-Analyse im CNC Backplot Editor
In the Analyse FILOU-MX produces a Report of the NC-code. It shows the runtime in whole or per tool, the Extension of the toolpath, the max. feedrate and much more. For every program additional data can be added: Rawmaterial, customer, machine, etc.
G-Code, HPGL, etc. can be exportet into other formats. Depending on the format there are different possible Setup Options.

On the left an exaple for export to HPGL.

Supported formats are:
G-Code (z.B. Sinumerik, Fanuc, DIN, ISO, etc.)
Heidenhain Klartext

CNC Programme übertragen zur Maschine im CNC Backplot Editor
Transfer to the machine

Machines that have an RS232 (V24)/COM Interface for datatransfer, can receive the data directly from FILOU-MX.

The bidirectional datatransfer is not dependent on the controll.

A Connection to other programs is possible.

Windows XP | VISTA | 7 | 8 | 10
For the Backplot OPEN-GL Support is needed.

FILOU-MX2 - CNC-Backplot-Editor

FILOU-MX is a strong CNC Backplot Editor

But the CNC-Backplot Editor can do so much more. With FILOU-MX you can simulate, visualize, edit and analyse toolpaths of your CNC-Programs. Once the CNC-Program is approved, it can be transfered to the machine with FILOU-MX. An export function into other formats completes the program.
