Good afternoon.
I live in Ukraine and work as a technologist in a furniture factory. I am engaged in the development of furniture facades, their appearance and beauty. Then I program it for the CNC. A worker in the shop cuts out what I programmed on the machine.
The question is this.
I developed a program for Windows that automatically calculates G-code for CNC machines.
The G-code is generated depending on the size of the facades and the selected pattern. (parametric programming).
Prompt, please forums where I could address with such a question.
Sorry for the bad english. I use a translator.

В чем вопрос собствено?

Do they understand Russian here? Not expected.
The question is:
I have a program, I wrote it myself. It automatically calculates G-Code for CNC machines.
The program is intended for automation of furniture production. For milling facades from MDF.
It allows not using CAD / CAM systems, getting G-Code for work. It turns out to be a great time saving.
At first I did it for myself, but then I showed it to others. Those who used it in their production advised me to treat it as a commercial product. To understand what I’m talking about, I can show the video (if I’m allowed to give a link to YouTube).
Do you ask me to help me sort, what forum should I contact? Who will be interested in this product?
With the translation of texts, I can manage, but I can not imagine how you have such forums and where to turn.
Thank you.

Тут понимают по-русски? Не ожидал.
Вопрос в следующем:
у меня есть программа, я сам её написал. Она производит автоматический расчёт G-Code для станков ЧПУ.
Программа предназначена для автоматизации мебельного производства. Для фрезеровки фасадов из МДФ. Она позволяет не используя CAD/CAM систем, получать G-Code для работы. Получается большая экономия времени.
Сначала я её делал для себя, но потом я показал её другим. Те кто её использовали у себя в производстве мне посоветовали отнестись к ней как коммерческому продукту. Чтобы понять о чем идет речь я могу показать видео (если мне позволят дать ссылку на YouTube).
У вас я прошу помощи соорентировать меня, на какой форум мне обратиться? Кому будет интересен этот продукт?
С переводом текстов я справлюсь, но я плохо представляю как тут у вас устроены такие форумы и куда обратиться.

Daos, your question seems like you want help to market your program commercially.

In the USA, for making these MDF doors, there are several existing programs similar to yours that perform this function.

I am unaware of a forum for developing or markeeting this type of application.

I have experience writing g-code for many different CNC machines. To use your program on many different CNC you would need to allow for the many unique configurations of machines as well. To me, this seems the biggest programming challenge you face.

As for marketing, that is another set of challenges that I cannot help you with.

Best wishes to you.

P.S. I believe there are several Lumberjocks on this forum from Russia.

Not certainly in that way. Of course, if I get help with the sale, I will not refuse. But please was in another. I need something like a guide. Imagine I came to another country, I do not know anyone and I ask you to tell me how to drive somewhere. Like that. I would be uncomfortable to shift my problems to others.

Anyway. With this then.
You say that there are similar programs in the USA. And you do not know how they are called and where you can about them read or watch a video? I would be interested to see what other people have achieved in this issue.

P.S. In my program there is a postprocessor editor and different machines is not a problem.

I find it quite amazing that you wrote a graphics program to work parametrically create the G-Code.

I think you are asking where can you go to find help to make it understandable to the shop floor.

That is quite a task in itself.

I understand the parametrics, the G-code, the machining, and the work instructions. I have worked with setup, programmed, tooled up, bought and installed several dozens of different machines. I have also taught and trained many many machinists and even several engineers in 8 different companies.

I do not understand the Russian language, but I have work with some Ukrainian people. I like you guys. Great personalities and very very smart. It does not surprise me that you would develop such a program.

I do not know of a forum that has that sort of knowledge and experience. I see forums that are 80-90 % hobby and a little bit of commercial and even less industrial exposure.

Thank you for your appreciation.
I will look further.
I was advised to contact the Homag Group and HOLZMANN.
Show them their developments. I’ll try.

Have your say...
