DEFINITION OF SHAREWARE

Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying it.
If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are expected to
register. Individual programs differ on details -- some request registration
While others require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With
registration, you get anything from the simple right to continue using the
software to an updated program with a printed manual.

Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the
copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as stated
above. Shareware authors are accomplished programmers, just like commercial
authors, and the programs are of comparable quality. (In both cases, there
are good programs and bad ones!)

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should find
software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's commercial or
Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs easier, because you
can try before you buy. And because the overhead is low, prices are low also.
Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if you don't use the
product, you don't pay for it.

"shareware program" and is provided at no charge to the user for evaluation.
Feel free to share it with your friends, but please do not give it away
altered or as part of another system. The essence of "user-supported"
software is to provide personal computer users with quality software without
high prices, and yet to provide incentive for programmers to continue to
develop new products. If you find this program useful and find that you are
using the CNC-CAD-CAM Package and continue to use the CNC-CAD-CAM Package
after a reasonable trial period, you must make a registration payment of
$95.00 + $8.00 for shipping and handling to Brian Pfaffl, Northland
Multisoft. The $95.00 + $8.00 for shipping and handling registration fee will
license one copy for use on any one computer at any one time. You must treat
this software just like a book. An example is that this software may be used
by any number of people and may be freely moved from one computer location to
another, so long as there is no possibility of it being used at one location
while it's being used at another. Just as a book cannot be read by two
different persons at the same time.

Commercial users of the CNC-CAD-CAM Package must register and pay for their
copies of the CNC-CAD-CAM Package within 30 days of first use or their license
is withdrawn. Site-License arrangements may be made by contacting Northland
Multisoft.

Anyone distributing the CNC-CAD-CAM Package for any kind of compensation must
first contact Northland Multisoft at the address above for authorization. This
authorization will be automatically granted to distributors recognized by the

distributors may begin offering the CNC-CAD-CAM Package immediately (However
Northland Multisoft must still be advised so that the distributor can be kept
up-to-date with the latest version of the CNC-CAD-CAM Package).

You are encouraged to pass a copy of the CNC-CAD-CAM Package along to your
friends for evaluation. Please encourage them to register their copy if they
find that they can use it. All registered users will receive a copy of the
latest version of the the CNC-CAD-CAM Package.

This program is produced by a member of the Association of Shareware
Professionals (ASP). ASP wants to make sure that the shareware principle
works for you. If you are unable to resolve a shareware-related problem with
an ASP member by contacting the member directly, ASP may be able to help. The

CNC-Trailblazer start-up:

On the initial start-up the code identification input is needed in
each directory that has been set-up. The file is named CODE.DAT.

X horizontal
Y vertical
I Hor Radius
J Ver Radius
0 X-Y X-DIA
Program Start

X, Y, I, J are the standard code identifiers, but some machines are
different. A lathe for example, the identifiers are in the order of
X, Z, I, K and X is vertical instead of horizontal. Also X is a
diameter. When plotting, the standard code identifiers are used and
will be converted when the file is saved to disk. Do not use
diameters when plotting. To convert the code for a lathe enter "1"
for the (X-Y X-DIA) entry. You may enter a typical start code for
your machine. The typical start code for a wire EDM could be:
G20 G90 G92. The codes are not the same for all machines, so refer
to your machines documentation.

General procedure for making CNC code:

1 Window Area

Input the window area coordinates. The window area is determined by
the size of the part and the start point of the program.

Example 1: Start of program is X0, Y0

Part size = X1, Y2
Start point = X0, Y0

Min X -1.1
Max X 1.1

Min Y -1.1
Max Y 1.1

Example 2: Start of program is X.5, Y.5

Part size = X.5, Y.5
Start point = X.5, Y.5

Min X -.1
Max X .6

Min Y -.1
Max Y .6

2 Geometry

Place the geometry of the part on the screen by using the geometry
ICON's. The geometry section gives details of each geometry ICON.

3 Plot Tool Path

Select the plot ICON (the pencil) and press the left mouse button on
the item, and near the start intersection, that will be included in
the next plot move. Continue until your path is complete.

Note:
If the intersection has other close geometry nearby then you
may need to separate the intersection to select the correct
geometry.

If the wrong path is found then select the Delete Plot ICON
(the crossed out pencil) to delete the last path move. The
"D" key on the keyboard will also delete the last current plot
move.

If another geometry item is too close so that you cannot make
the correct path move then use the Delete Geometry ICON (the
crossed out circle and line) to temporarily delete that
geometry. A yellow dot in the center of the Delete Geometry
ICON indicates that there is a geometry in memory. Press the
"R" key on the keyboard to replace the geometry.

4 Save File

Always remember to save the program before exiting CNC Trailblazer.
File names can be up to 8 characters.

5 Other Options

Printout the geometry and plot code. Also you may printout the
window area graphics, either the geometry as seen on the screen or
only the path shown on the screen.

After saving the program you may leave CNC Trailblazer by exiting to
CNC Transedit. Now you may send the program to your CNC machine or
to another device. Identify your programs and printout your program
code. You may also edit your program by using the editor.

Window size:

Enter the window size dimensions. For example if a two inch square
area is needed and zero is the center then enter:

Min X -1
Max X 1

Min Y -1
Max Y 1

If the minimum and maximum Y's are the same as the X's then you may
just press enter for the Y entries.

Geometry coordinates:

To display the coordinates of a geometry snap the right mouse button
with the mouse cursor near the desired geometry. The information will
be displayed on the lower left corner of the screen. This will not
function in the zoom mode, so choose a geometry ICON or PLOT to exit
the zoom mode before using this feature.

Mouse problems:

If your mouse does not seem to be working then check to make sure that
you have installed your mouse driver properly. Also if your mouse is
not a newer model high resolution mouse then it may not work in VGA
graphics mode. You will need to purchase a newer model mouse.

VERTICAL LINE

After this selection has been made then enter the X coordinate point.

HORIZONTAL LINE

After this selection has been made then enter the Y coordinate point.

CIRCLE

After this selection has been made then enter the X coordinate point,
Y coordinate point, and the radius of the circle.

ANGLE

After this selection has been made then enter the X coordinate point,
Y coordinate point, and the angle of the line.

PARALLEL LINE

After this selection has been made then move the mouse cursor near a
line and snap the mouse button to select that line. Now enter the
distance desired either positive or negative. The result will be
measured at 90 degrees of the selected line's angle.

LINE circle to circle

After this selection has been made then move the mouse cursor near a
circle and snap the mouse button to select that circle. Now move the
mouse cursor near the second circle and snap the mouse button to
select the second circle. When selecting circles snap the mouse
button near the area that the line will be tangent to that circle.

CIRCLE circle to line

Will be included in next update.

CIRCLE circle at angle

After this selection has been made then move the mouse cursor near a
circle and snap the mouse button to select that circle. Now enter
the angle of intersection and the radius of the new circle.

CIRCLE between two lines

After this selection has been made then move the mouse cursor near a
line and snap the mouse button to select that line. Now move the
mouse cursor near the second line and snap the mouse button to select
the second line. Now enter the radius desired. When selecting lines
snap the mouse button near the area that the circle will be tangent
to that line.

LINE circle angle at angle

After this selection has been made then move the mouse cursor near a
circle and snap the mouse button to select that circle. Now enter the
angle of the tangent point and then enter the angle of the line.

CIRCLE between two circles

Will be included in next update.

DELETE Geometry

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor over the delete geometry
ICON to enter the delete mode. Now move the mouse cursor near the
geometry that is to be deleted and snap the mouse button. The
geometry selected will turn red. Pressing the left mouse button will
delete the geometry and pressing the right mouse button will deselect
deleting that geometry. Select another ICON to exit the delete mode.
After deleting a geometry, a small yellow dot will appear in the
middle of the delete ICON. This indicates that the last delete
geometry item is in memory and can be recalled by pressing the "R"
key on the keyboard. This can be useful when plotting an intersection
that has many close geometric shapes in a small area.

PLOT Path

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor over the plot path ICON to
plot your tool path. Plot path may be activated at any time. When
activated, snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor on a geometry
and near an intersection that the path will start from. Always select
the specific geometry that will be included in the next path. Select
another ICON to exit the plot path mode.

DELETE Plot

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor over the delete plot ICON
to delete the last current plot move from the screen and memory. If
your last plot move found the wrong location then use the delete plot
function and try again. Use the zoom function if you are having
difficulty plotting the location desired. Pressing the "D" key on the
keyboard will also delete the last current plot move.


Circular Direction

This is a circular plotting function. To change the direction, either
clockwise or counter clockwise, move the mouse curser over the
circular direction ICON and snap the mouse button. The current
direction will be displayed in blue.

LINE-CIRCLE Indicator

This indicator shows you that your last plotting move ended on either
a line or a circle. This is important because if your next plot move
will be plotted a radius and if your last plot location was on a line
then your next plot move will be plotted a straight line. You must
snap the mouse button on the geometry that your next move will start
from.

MIRROR change

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor on the mirror, change ICON
to display the mirror, change menu. Now select your option by
snapping the mouse button on the desired box. If you select X mirror
then the X dimensions will be mirrored and if you select X mirror
again then the X dimensions will mirror again and will be as it was.
X mirror is a horizontal mirror and Y mirror is a vertical mirror.
XY change will swap X dimensions with Y dimensions. Window area
allows you to change the dimensions of the window work area.

PRINT

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor on the print ICON to
display the print menu. Now select your option by snapping the mouse
button on the desired box. The source box selection prints the
geometry and plotting code. The graphics box selection prints the
work window area. To print graphics, an Epson compatible 24 pin
printer that has graphics capabilities is required.

FILE

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor over the file ICON to
display the file menu. Now type the file name and select either load,
save, or new. Use CNC-Transedit to select a program file to load if
the file name is unknown. New clears the memory to make a new
program. Always remember to save a file before you exit.

ZOOM

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor over the zoom ICON. Now
enter the a multiplier from -50 to 50 and enter the X and Y
coordinates or snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor at the
location in the work window desired. To return to normal press enter
three times when in the zoom mode. Select another ICON to exit the
ZOOM mode.

REPLOT

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor over the replot ICON.
This will replot any geometry and plot information that you have in
memory. This may be needed if extensive editing is done.

EXIT

Snap the mouse button with the mouse cursor over the exit ICON to
display the exit menu. Now select your option by snapping the mouse
button over the box desired. You may exit to CNC-Transedit, exit to
DOS, or resume by selecting the no box.
