JETCAM International — developer of the Expert CAD/CAM software platform — recently relaunched its Jetcam Orders Controller software (JOC) for end users, following a “ground-up rework” that it said delivers a user-installable product that requires less than 30 minutes of training.

The developer introduced its CAD/CAM platform in 1986 and now notes it is in use in over 80 countries. The Expert software supports a vast range of CNC punching, laser, plasma, routing, waterjet and flatbed cutting machines, meaning users can program multiple combinations of CNC machines with a single CAM system.

The new version of Jetcam Orders Controller, JOC Lite II, allows users to create order lists of either components or complex assembly structures, remotely, and then send them to the Expert CADCAM software for nesting. The new software is delivered with over 20 tutorial videos that guide users through all stages of setup and usage, and only requires paths to be set up to point to the user’s Jetcam installation and geometry files.

Once JOC Lite II is installed, users can create unlimited worksheets, e.g., for different operators, machines, days, etc. Dragging and dropping components or complete assemblies onto the worksheet can populate these worksheets. Or, the programmer can use CSV import to create and populate worksheets automatically.
