The software supplied with the machine ensures that you can easily convert your designs to real objects without the need to find, research, evaluate and purchase software. Extra software such as 2D Design and Make, PCB Design and Make complete the suite and allow any design operation to be undertaken.
The MDX-20/15 comes standard with powerful application software compatible with Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000, making it easy to use right out of the box.
MODELA Player is a numeric control software application that allows importing of 3D files from most popular computer graphics and CAD applications.
included with MODELA Player are libraries of various tool diameters and shapes with their pre-determined cutting speeds and depths.
MODELA Player facilitates uniform 3D scaling, selection of milling direction and automatic generation and display of the tool path.
Virtual MODELA provides a quick preview of the entire milling operation. This powerful feature eliminates milling errors, enables simulation of finished shapes and estimates production time.
The MDX-20/15 is ideal for reverse engineering. Before beginning your designs, you can use the MDX-20/15 to scan and digitize data from an existing part or mold for your CAD drawings. Due to the precision of its Roland Active Piezo Sensor (R.A.P.S.) technology, the MDX scans a wide range of objects, including soft objects like clay and fruit, etc., that conventional contact scanners can't. It can even scan glass or acrylic - an impossibility with optical scanners because their light beams pass through the material.
