Software Magic, Inc., provider of the
IntelliPost family of N/C Post Processor products, announces its new Version
- IntelliPost 2003.Developed specifically to ease the effort
and reduce the learning curve involved in creating N/C Post Processors.
IntelliPost 2003 is
a fully enabled Win2000/XP compatible application. Intellipost 2003 uses the Data Access Objects (DAO) approach for
internal storage and retrieval of postprocessor configuration information.
This makes it fit into modern client/server networks that allow
manufacturing engineers to have common, simultaneous access to their
company's complete postprocessor library and share development information
IP2003 was written using Microsoft VC++ 5.0
and NMC 4.2. The result is a modern "look and feel" - very much like
Microsoft Office and other up to date applications. The quick select
toolbars, helpful "tool tips", intuitive property sheets, status
bars, and standard common Windows function dialogs are used to quickly lead
the user through the Post configuration process.
IP2003 also includes IntelliPost 2003
Wizard. The Wizard guides a first time Post Writer through the Post
configuration process screen by screen and step by step. In ten (10) easy
steps the IP2003 user can create a complete "PP.dat" (Post
Processor Definition) file for his machine and control. This PP.dat is then
ready for use with any IntelliPost Post Processor Execution Engine (PPEE) V.
5.x, IP 6.0/PC, - on any supported platform - Unix Workstation, Minicomputer,
Mainframe, or P.C, as well as IP2003..
IP2003 is designed to complement the
current IntelliPost configuration tool - PPGEN (Pos tProcessor Generator).
PPGEN, a parameter driven system, is in use by hundreds of customers
worldwide generating Posts. IP2003 produces the exact same format PP.dat
file as does PPGEN. This allows Posts developed in PPGEN to be imported and
modified in IP2003, and for Posts developed in IP2003 to be imported and
modified in IP 6.0 PPGEN.
Customers can thereby leverage the IP 6.0 PPGEN
experience of their veteran postprocessor designers who can continue to use
their original parameter-based PPGEN tools or easily switch to the IP2003.
New designers or others who develop postprocessors infrequently can take
full advantage of the Windows standard graphical user interface and IntelliPost
We've talked a lot with our customers Many
of them are very, very proficient with the classic PPGEN software and don't
see an immediate need to change. But others are recent new users of
Intellipost, and have not had the training to become proficient in the
classic PPGEN command line interface. For these new users, IP2003, with its
Wizards and Windows GUI interface, is the solution to quickly generating
your own Post Processors!
And that's the important thing - you now
have a choice between PPGEN Classic and IP2003 Windows GUI. Even better, you really don't have to choose at all, since PPGEN and IP2003 results are fully interchangeable. And both use the
time-proven industry standard IntelliPost Postprocessor Execution Engine.
