Isolation milling

Interface function

Serving as an interface between the CAD systems and the CNC systems by calculating tool pathes to transform the PCB design into CNC machines’ instructions for PCB manufacturing.

Inspection function

Identifying the design rules violations, highlighting them on screen and providing an option for forcing special isolation to minimize the effect of the problems.

Modification function

Editing, manipulating and modifying the objects from the CAD system files (Applying small changes, cloning, moving and panelization of the objects).

ISOCAM3000’s key features

The most important features of IsoCAM3000 software and why we are proud of their quality.

01

Import of cad systems’ files

IsoCAM3000 can import Gerber files; HPGL files; Bitmap files; G-Code files; DXF files; other files. IsoCAM3000 supports profiles of the different PCB design CAD systems to automate the Gerber, drill and Excellon import process in terms of automatic recognition of layers. For the drill files the format is auto recognized, too.
02

Isolation & rubout

The quality of the calculations is the highest possible with software resolution of 1 nanometer. We use advanced and sophisticated algorithms for toolpath’s calculation and for utilization of the multi-thread possibilities of the modern processors. Numerous comfortable options available in the process.
03

Design Rules Violation & Forced isolation options

Design rules violation (DVR) option starts automatically after isolation and discovers the problematic areas, where the PCB design is disturbed). Then the Forced isolation option allows you to insulate this area with minimum DRV in the best possible way.
04

Objects manipulation

Easily clone / move / rotate / delete / panelize / group / ungroup objects with possibility to Undo and Redo – 32 levels.
05

Breakout tabs, remove spikes and other editing the final layout features

Possibility to import additional objects – breakout tabs, texts, vector texts, pictures, bitmaps, QR codes, Datamatrix, different fiducial marks, etc. Remove spikes is an option to remove some areas with remaining copper in order to avoid spikes (can save time, as it completes the isolation if rubout will not be executed).
06

Export of files to cnc programs

IsoCAM3000 can export files in the following formats: G-Code, HPGL, Gerber & Excellon. It can print projects. It can export projects with scale factor (for Gerber, Excellon and printing).
