ProtoTRAK Conversational Language

Program the ProtoTRAK SMX by making simple selections and answering prompts in plain English. Unlike conventional CNCs, you define only the part geometry; the ProtoTRAK SMX defines the tool path for you.

Tool Path Graphics

Tool path graphics allows you to see where the control will move the tool prior to machining. Press the LOOK key while programming to see programmed events with color graphics.

Profiles & Pockets

Programming pockets and profiles of all shapes is a breeze with powerful canned cycles.
