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.
To download updates, see our OneCNC Updates page.
OneCNCXR6 Update Version 40.26 has been released and is now available in the update server
OneCNC has added a new feature in this update for Traditional Pocketing
This function has been replaced by a new Traditional Pocket function that now provides a real efficiency boost for users that have this requirement.. This function now allows for the tool step over to be set up to 95% of the tool diameter to provide this new efficiency.This dramatic increase in coverage up to 95% was developed due to many user requests for increased efficiency in the traditional pocket function. The function is just as simple to use as before with the only difference being that the user can now make use of this new technology by increasing the step over amount as required..
This is a video showing the ability of the new functionality of the Traditional Pocket function.
This new functionality is available in all OneCNCXR6 Mill Versions and is now available for download and use.
OneCNCXR6 Update Version 40.24 has been released and is now available in the update server.
There are quite a few changes and updates in tis version due to the complexity of supporting so many OS including 32 bit and 64 bit
Support for GUI 768 pixel height.
There were many more adjustments required to make OneCNCXR6 fully compatible with this GUI pixel height. This work is now complete and unless you are actually installing OneCNC and using it on a screen limited to 768 pixels you would not see the difference because it automatically re-configures in size to suit that resolution.
Drill Wizard Function
There were adjustments made so that drilling cycles from OneCNCXR5 are now fully compatible in OneCNCXR6
These changes were necessary in case the file was created in the earlier version and for some reason edited in the later version.
This was because OneCNCXR6 now recognises the material top whereas previously that was not the case.
Multi Axis Drilling
There were adjustments made to the Multi Axis drilling cycles to make them compatible with files previously made in earlier versions of OneCNC and now editing the file in OneCNCXR6.
Open Pocket Function
The open pocket from boundaries was modified as in some cases in some operating systems the pocket finish dialog was showing when it was not meant to be.
In open pocket the finish profiles if required are separately selected.
HS Z Level Roughing
The HS Z level rough function has had aditional gouge safety adjustments due to now having the ability for collision checking.
The Section Function
The add section to screen function has had the entities optimized to minimise the output entities when adding the entities to the screen for further use..
Lathe Turn Face Function
There was an adjustment and improvement in Lathe Turn and Face turning on the backside or approaching the part from the from the chuck or left side.
OneCNCXR6 Update version 40.20 has been released and is available in the update server.
New Features and adjustments in OneCNCXR6 version 40.20
New Simulation Screen size support
The present user release of version 40.18 the screen size of the simulation does not allow for all control settings in a height resolution of 768 pixel size.
The new OneCNCXR6 40.20 version now permits control in this screen size which is required sometimes used in laptops.
This setting is automatic when installed on this size screen
New Quick Check Turbo Simulation
OneCNCXR6 40.20 simulation now has a new turbo setting for 3 axis quick simulation of huge files.
This function developed as a quick check only without support for multi axis or collision checking.
For collision checking use the normal simulation quality setting.
The new Turbo Quick Check function supports from stock solid as well as extents and boundary control.
The Hole wizard chamfer size selection was corrected.
When Selecting dimensions for editing the dimension colours were corrected to make colours and dimensions selectable.
Rhino import in 32 bit versions was corrected to allow importing Rhino in 32 bit.versions.
Repositioning function was adjusted to show correct direction in simulation and preview.
Wizard Drilling was corrected to allow users to use work shift to set the part top after setting the part with a Z zero at the part bottom then continue to select drilling from geometry.
Users can update to this version on the OneCNC Updates Page.
