Notes

  • It is also possible to extend the file importing capabilities of the OMAX software via the built in OMAX Scripting Language. Templates are provided to get the programmer started. As one example of many possibilities, there is a g-code “reverse post” importing template that can be used to bring in files from other machines into the OMAX Layout CAD/CAM system, or directly into the OMAX Make controller software.
  • The OMAX Custom Reporting feature can create custom reports from virtually any text based file, and is not limited by the short list of common examples above.
