OpenCNC CNC Software Developer's Kit

The OpenCNC® Software Developer Kit (SDK) includes the OpenCNC Runtime, which lets you install OpenCNC on a machine at your facility. With the OpenCNC SDK, engineers can design, build, test, and simulate the CNC application offline, in software, before installing it on the machine tool. The SDK includes sample mill and lathe applications. The OpenCNC Runtime is the execution kernel that controls the machine tool. Windows 2000/XP real-time determinism is provided by the Ardence RTX® extension.
