Create a program allowing the contents of an order to be selected from our existing database. The required program will select standard DXF or G-Code files to create a 'master' cut file on a CNC plasma table based on the contents of the items in the order description and variables/formulas provided 'Cutting Pattern Cue table' (see attached excel sheet).
The program will also need to identify which location the correct sheets will be pulled from based on the order item description.
The program is to control a sheet retrieval 'robot' to bring the correct raw steel sheet to a CNC plasma cutting table and then execute the appropriate generated G-Code file to cut the required profile.
The programmer will be required to:
- read from a Pervasive database
- implement programming using information from an excel table (or a different table)
- combine/modify Gcode or DXF's
- Pass results for motion control purposes using LinuxCNC
