Sketch-turn – Interactive Programming

Sketch-turn is DMT’s NC programming automation software that enables a user equipped with only very basic machining knowledge to create a machining program optimized for Doosan Machine Tools’ turning centers. Considering the actual sequence involved in the writing of programs, the main menus are arranged vertically from top to bottom, while detailed menus for each main menu are arranged from left to right, enhancing intuitive usability. The available data relating to tools and cutting conditions are stored in the database to allow the efficient management of machining knowledge, and the 3D simulation function provides a preview of the machined images.

Sketch-turn Main Screen


① Overview

Displays materials and procedures in a outline

② Main menu

The entire series of procedures for creating the NC code is arranged vertically from top to bottom in sequence

  • Program Management
  • - Setting material and machine data
  • - Managing the process list
  • - Setting the process (Inputting shape data, machining strategy, and cutting condition)
  • - Simulation
  • - Managing the turret and tool DB

③ Other information

Displaying error and execution-related message windows and soft keys

④ Submenu & Execution Screen

Inputting detailed items and checking machining simulation

Reducing the time required for programming and improving productivity

- Reduces the time required for programming by 50 to 70% compared to manual NC code writing

- Reduces the time required for programming by 90% or more through ‘copy and paste’/correcting when writing the code for similar workpieces

- Reduces the time required for testing before machining and detects errors in advance using 3D graphic simulation

- Optimized perfectly for Doosan machine tools, and requires no additional post-processing
