Predator CNC Editor - Predator Software

 NEW! Predator CNC Editor 2005
available September 30th

Tired of manually editing G code on your CNC control? Need to see how edits affect your part? The Predator CNC Editor is the most popular 32-bit CNC code editor available on the market. It includes hundreds of features to improve the day to day productivity of CNC machine tools, yet it is extremely easy to use. The Predator CNC Editor is the ideal choice for a small job shop or the largest manufacturer.

Includes the following features:

  • CNC Intelligent Editing and File Compare.

  • Unlimited File Size with Undo and Redo.

  • DNC in the Background.

  • 2-5 Axis Verification and backplotting of CNC Code.

  • Full Math Operations including Trig Functions.

  • ISO 9000 Compliant Printing.

CNC Intelligent Editing with Undo and Redo

Tired of manually editing CNC code? Dozens of CNC intelligent editing commands make changes to your CNC program quickly and easily. Edit confidently with the ability to undo and redo the last 256 changes. Microsoft® Word compatible menus, toolbar, and shortcut keys make Predator CNC Editor easy to learn.

Predator Editor with Feed Rate wizard!

Unlimited File Size

Trouble with large files? The Predator CNC Editor supports up to 64 Megs of code per CNC program. In addition, editing multiple CNC programs at the same time is supported, with the ability to cut, copy, and paste between them.

File Compare

Need to compare? The Predator CNC Editor includes a side by side file compare which identifies each G and M code difference and fixes them with a single click of the mouse. A summary report and numerous options to ignore spaces, blank lines, leader/trailer, feed rates, spindle speeds and tool changes simplify the process of integrating shop floor edits with a master CNC program.

Send, Receive and Dripfeed to your CNC machines

Limited with your RS-232 communications? Send, receive, and dripfeed to one machine at a time, via switch box or direct connection to any compatible CNC machine. Works in the background even while other software applications are running. Should a tool break, an easy to use DNC Restart command automatically re-creates the CNC program from any point.

Predator Editor includes Single Port CNC Communications!

NOTE: An upgrade to our full Predator DNC product provides support for DNC networking of multiple CNC machines at the same time.

Graphically Verify CNC Code

Ever gouge a part, break a tool or crash a CNC machine? Graphically verify CNC code by quickly backplotting a wire frame model of any CNC program in a true 3D environment. Supports 2, 3, 4 and 5 axis mills, routers, waterjets, and lasers. In addition, it supports 2 axis lathes. Within the graphics window eight predefined views, zoom in, zoom out, pan and fit commands provide complete control of the process. Copy the backplot or 3D animation to the clipboard and quickly add graphics to your setup sheets.

Predator Editor with 3D backplotting capability!

NOTE: An upgrade to our full Predator Virtual CNC product provides support for comprehensive CNC verification and machine simulation.

CNC Templates

Frustrated by generic software applications? Predator Editor CNC Templates add intelligence by remembering all the CNC control details. Includes a library of 20 sample CNC templates. Each CNC template is completely configurable.
