7.15. Large (or huge) programs

The main purpose of the CNCSimulator Pro is to be just what the name implies; a simulator. We put lots of effort in making the simulations as realistic as possible. Users who work with huge programs (tens of thousands of blocks) will not benefit from a realistic simulator as it will take hours to simulate through such programs. The most practical solution for huge programs is not a realistic simulator but a fast backplotting software.
In the CNCSimulator we have built in a fast backplotting function. It creates toolpaths from 50.000 blocks or more in an instant letting you zoom, pan and rotate your toolpath. It is only made for milling programs and with a limited set of G and M-codes. For example, sub programs and cycles are not supported by the fast backplotting function. You find it under Tools in the menu.
It is most convenient to use the backplotter with one of the unlimited machines or with the graphics turned off.
