Machines featuring the ProtoTRAK CNC

Auto Geometry Engine® (A.G.E.)

CAD power while you program — only in the ProtoTRAK

Sometimes you get prints that don't have the data you need. So before you can make the part, you've got to track down the originator of the print and get him to redo it for you.

The Auto Geometry Engine® (A.G.E.) is the answer to that. It is powerful software that automatically fills in missing print dimensions as you program. It is CAD capability embedded into ProtoTRAK RMX programming.

This print lacks the dimensions for several intersections and even one arc center.

Not called out on print:

  • Intersection of lines 3 and 4
  • Intersection of lines 5 and 6
  • Intersection of lines 7 and 8
  • Center of arc 8
  • Intersection of arcs 8 and 9
  • Intersection of arcs 9 and 10

Yet you can easily program the complete profile using A.G.E.!

TRAKing Pat goes over the A.G.E. Profile on the ProtoTRAK RMX Control (Offline). While programming new events, he uses the Guess feature to help fill in the missing dimensions of his piece part. With the powerful capability of A.G.E. you can make easy work out of programming incomplete prints or part sketches.

Here is a snapshot of how it works:

And thanks to the new touchscreen, A.G.E. now has Tap to Guess.

We tapped the screen here and the A.G.E. entered the data from our fingertip as the guess.

Once we define Event 10, the A.G.E. was able to calculate Event 9.

It really is that good!
