Cimskil's Expert modules allow you to program the system to act in exactly the way that you require.
You have seen that the Cimskil process uses libraries at run-time. These libraries contain more than data; they contain also the manufacturing processing rules specific to your organization. You can program and easily modify these yourself.
Diagrammatically, the Expert system is represented as:
The sketch above shows a totally new way of automating NC programming tasks. The most important points to note are:
You do not need to define all machine, tool and material characteristics interactively. If you have these data available, and can obtain them in a straightforward ASCII format, then the library can be loaded simply by reading the file into Cimskil.
Default libraries are supplied with the product. The following links give examples; however, you will always want to re-populate or adapt these. Note that these pages show only the lists of some of the entries in the default libraries - there are very large databases of data maintained for the individual entries.
