Diffractives: Zone diameters based on a given step height, either entered in microns/thou's, or calculated from wavelength, refractive indices & diffractive order.
Fresnels: Step heights based on a given number of zones. Maximum step height is displayed.
Zone calculations: There are no constraints on the zone curve equation. Step direction changes are freely allowed, if you can design them.
Tool types & modes: Diamonds, Flycutter, or no tool (surface data only); XZ, or XZB B-Axis modes. 3D CXZ slow-tool-servo or XYZ flycutter - either 'zigzag' raster or XYZ spiral.
Tool corrections: Diamonds - round, elliptical, flatted tools; Select tool orientation, left/right hand, flat angle & offset, tilt and rake angles.
Flycutter: corrects for transverse diamond radius - selectable accuracy, either better than 1 nanometer, or better than 0.01nm (takes twice as long to calculate).
Edge lead-in: Horizontal, or at a tangent to the surface, or selectable chamfer angle.
Graphics: A wide range of useful options; High-resolution printouts. Jobfile setup: Prolog & Epilog files, Edge-to-center / Center-to-edge, spindle direction.
Jobfile formats: for any CNC machine, including 'PGM' format and Optoform® 'JFL' format. We will be pleased to write any format you require.
Inch/mm: Switch live between the two.
PC requirements: Windows XP or later, Pentium 300MHz or better, Disk Space - 30MB minimum for program, PC memory - 1GB or more, USB port for dongle, CD or DVD-Rom drive
2D Measurement Corrections, including Talysurf®: Accepts Talysurf binary or ASCII data, or any XZ formatted data Contact us for other types; Various functions: Fold, Flip, Smooth, Offsets. Multiple measurement can be stored and added together. Zones and 3D can be corrected with limitations - ask. DIFFSYS OPTION MC3 3D Measurement Corrections and CAD import: As MC2, PLUS: Accepts 3D XYZ ASCII data. Uses a 3D spline smoothing function. Ask for details.
