OneCNC Series Updates

This is a history of all OneCNC updates.

You may notice sometimes there can be a jump in version numbers.

This is due to intensive and continual internal testing where we thoroughly test versions before releasing proven functional updates.

OneCNCXR7 Release 51.98

OneCNC has released OneCNCXR7 Version Update 51.98

This version is applicable to all OneCNCXR7 CAD CAM software applications

Update Contents:

There is a major upgrade to the translators in this version to bring them to the current update requirements.


Solidworks now suits all versions up to Solidworks 2018 in 64 Bit OS.

Solidworks have changed file data this latest Solidworks 2018 release.


OneCNCXR7 51.98 supports all files up to Solidworks 2018 in 64 bit version of OneCNC only.

OneCNCXR7 51.98 32 Bit Version will read Solidworks files up to 2017 version only.

This is because the Solidworks files in 2018 are only 64 Bit readable.

This will mean that OneCNC users will need to have 64 Bit OneCNC to read Solidworks 2018 files.

Users with only 32 Bit OneCNC will need to request their supplier supply the files as STEP files because the 2018 sldprt files are 64 Bit

Users with OneCNC 32 Bit OS attempting to load Solidworks 2018 files will see a message to update their OS to 64 Bit to read this file.

OneCNC Licenced users can update to 64 Bit version free of cost simply by installing the OneCNCXR7 51.98 on to a Windows 64 Bit OS.

OneCNCXR7 Release 51.89

OneCNC has released OneCNCXR7 Version Update 51.89

There are many adjustments in this release which is applicable to all versions of OneCNCXR7

The main changes in this release are:

Extracting Entities:

Many users were used to just extracting geometry entities to the current layer.

OneCNC in the previous release released the ability to extract and move extracted entities to a layer named extracted as a default setting. This was done to separate extracted geometry because extracted is best fit geometry rather than drawn geometry. OneCNCXR7 Version update 51.88 by default still extracts the extracted entities to the extracted layer but it also supports switching the extracted to the current layer.

This new setting can be found File> OneCNC Properties> Layer Tab


Chinese language version:

This release includes the latest updates to bith the Traditional and Simplified versions of Chinese languages.
There is an update to the German and Japanese Languages to reflect the latest changes.


3D dimensions can now use entities that are not on the same plane.
This ability should only be used with care.
The view should be rotated to the plane that dimension is to be viewed on to check and ensure the dimension refers the the entities that you require.
In 3D the reference lines may not be on the selected entities 


True Type Fonts

Text to Geometry (vectorized text) True Type fonts function use it was found that some fonts had duplicated entities. This version corrects that so that there are no duplicated geometry causing a multiple engraving of those entities.

Coolant Setting

The editing of the coolant name in the tool change dialog was not saving correctly.

This is now available in the OneCNC update server


OneCNCXR7 Release 51.84

We have released today OneCNCXR7 Version Release 51.84

There are a few adjustments in this release.

This version is applicable to all OneCNCXR7 systems.


All extracted entities are automatically applied to layer named extracted. Now if a user is going to extract multiple boundaries to keep them separated they just need to right click layer and add to the layer name eg. extracted pocket that way they will have record of what the extracted was for.

This is far siimpler that copying etc and provides logical tidy keeping.

Right Mouse on layer name

select 1

Add for example pocket

select 2

User TIP

A tip about extracted if it is a 3D model only use "extract all" sparingly because it adds potentially thousands of entities to the database and will slow your system down unnecessarily. If all you need is some sizes off the model there are better tools in verify data or selecting individual items without slowing the system down. Another tip is if you do need to use select all obtain whats required from the created entities and click undo to rid the database of the entities.

This OneCNCXR7 Version Release 51.84 is available now in the update server.
