General

  • Support for new 3D file versions added
    The currently supported versions can always be found on www.autopol.com/translators, but the new versions added in this release are the following.
    Creo: 6.0
    Inventor: V2020

    Parasolid: 31.1.188
    Siemens NX: NX 1847
  • No to All when closing multiple documents
    When the command Close All is used to close multiple documents, it is now possible to say No to All when the user is asked if they should be saved or not.
    This will not only save time, but also decrease the need for multiple interactions with the user when none of the documents should be saved.

BendSim

  • Support for Bystronic controllers
    We are happy to announce that from this release AutoPOL now also supports Bystronic machines with their own controllers ByVision Bending and MMC Bybend.
    With increased demand for support of these controls FCC Software decided to put the required resources into developing this post-processor, and after intensive development and testing we are happy to release this new functionality. From this release AutoPOL also contains an extensive predefined Bystronic tool library to make implementation of these machines simple and efficent.
  • Support for Trumpf Touchpoint controller
    The newer Trumpf Touchpoint control is starting to appear more frequently in the markt, which means there is now more requests for AutoPOL to run also those machinies.
    As of this new release, the Touchpoint control is also supported. When creating code for the Trumpfs, you can simply choose if it should be adapted for the previous TASC6000 or the new Touchpoint control in the machine settings.

Batch & Remote

  • Program Queue Optimizer in Remote mode
    The Program Queue Optimizer released in the previous version can now also be used in Remote mode.
    This means that the functionality to calculate in what sequence the individual parts should be produced, to minimize time needed for tool changes, can now also be used by external software systems. This can for example be ERP and MRP systems.
    How to implement this functionality with your own software system is documented in the AutoPOL Help.
