Batch Processing

The MBend automation feature can batch process your parts.

The user friendly interface & the CAD-like functions make transitioning from any drafting software to Metalix very easy. With training & guidance from their experienced technician I was surprised how quickly the software was implemented.

MBend can process parts in batches, using selections of native MBCAM, 3D (IGS, STEP) or 2D (DXF, DWG) parts to generate machine-ready NC files and setup reports.

Watch a video on how to use the batch processing feature:

You can determine how to process a group of parts and save the settings for later use as a script file.

Select individual parts or entire folders to process, choose a machine—optionally deciding to generate NC and reports—and configure backup processes to run if the first configuration fails.

MBend starts batch processing, running each part through automatic tooling, sequencing, simulation, and output generation using the configuration settings.

If processing a particular file fails (maybe because no appropriate tools are found, or because no sequence is collision-free), MBend proceeds to process the next part, and so on. When one part is processed successfully, output is generated. MBend then tries to process the failed parts using the next defined configuration.

You can manually change the predefined processing options, when necessary.
