NCPlot: Main features
All the tools you'd expect to find in
an excellent tool path plotting program - and there's so much
Don't think of NCPlot as just a tool path plotter. This outstanding program
provides all the resources you need to develop and verify G code programs from
NCPlot's well designed display screen is made up of two main viewing areas,
the Text Editor (on the left) and the Plotting Viewport (on the right). You can
manipulate the size of each viewing area at any time with a vertical sliding
bar. So if you're typing in a program, move the sliding bar to the right to
expose more of the Text Editor. If you're verifying a program, move the sliding
bar to the left to expose more of the Plotting Viewport. Program menus located
at the top of the screen provide access to all program functions and toolbar
icons provide instant access to the most commonly used functions.
The Plotting Viewport is interactive with the Text Editor. After you make an
addition or change in the Text Editor, you simply click one button (Refresh
Plot) to see what your change has done in the Plotting Viewport. What a
great way to check your work as you create a program!
What if I already have a CAM system that displays tool path?
Aside from the fact that we know of no CAM system that displays custom macro
B commands, many CAM systems only show a representation of what the CAM
system thinks the G code program will do - and it does so while the G
code level program is being created. Most CAM systems don't actually plot the G
code program. This means if you edit a G code program, you won't be able to
verify (with your CAM system) that the changes you've made are correct. Since
NCPlot works at G code level, you can always verify that modifications to G
code programs are correct.
Download a fully-functional, time-limited demo of NCPlot
We hope we've whetted your appetite for NCPlot and that you want to know
more. With our fully-functional demo of
NCPlot, you'll be able to evaluate NCPlot for fifteen days. Judge for
yourself if NCPlot will suit your needs.
CNCZone.com maintains a forum devoted to NCPlot. This forum is frequented by
Scott Martinez, the author of NCPlot, who often answers questions posted by
NCPlot users. To learn more about NCPlot - and what people are saying about it

If you've been using your CNC machine tools to verify programs, you've been
wasting precious machine time doing something that could be done off line with
NCPlot. You'll be able to justify the cost of NCPlot with the first mistake you
If you write or use custom macro B programs, NCPlot provides an affordable
way to verify your custom macros off line - and in an easier manner than on a
CNC machine tool.
If you don't have a CAM system, NCPlot will provide you with many helpful
features - like the DXF to G code converter - to help you create CNC programs
Even if you do have a CAM system, NCPlot will allow you to verify
modified G code level programs and custom macro B programs.
If you're an instructor, NCPlot will help you teach CNC in an interactive
manner. Students will be able to visually check their programs - even as they
type them - before running them on your expensive lab machines.
If you're a student taking classes to learn about CNC, you'll be able to
check the motions in your exercises before turning them in! Special student
pricing is available. See the pricing information at the bottom of this
page for details.
NCPlot should run properly on any Windows 32 bit system. But if you're
worried about compatibility issues, be sure to download and run the demo. If the demo runs on
your computer, so will the licensed version of the program.
What about updates?
Updates for NCPlot version 2.xx are FREE, meaning until we release a
major upgrade (version 3.00), you'll always be able to get the most recent
version of the software. Once you buy, you'll be given an unlock key that will
work for all updates to version 2.xx. Simply check in from time to time to see
if a newer version has been released (check the download page - the version number is
specified next to the download link). If there is a newer version, download it
and install it. You won't even have to reenter your unlock code - all updates
for NCPlot version 2.xx will recognize that you are a licensed user!
You have two delivery options to acquire the fully licensed version of
