Automatic Toolpath - Start Tab

Load an ATP parameters file and select the active application and part source to create output for.


Active Application Choose the active supported design application. This only needs to be set once, EnRoute will remember the selected application and won't be necessary reset it unless changing applications.
Part Source
Application List File Process files from the active application
Select Import Files Select the DXF files that contain the part information
Active Drawing Process the parts in the currently active EnRoute design
Load ATP File Load a saved ATP parameters file
Save ATP File Save changes to the currently loaded parameters file. If no parameter file is loaded, the Save As dialogue will open
Save ATP File As Save the current settings as a new ATP parameters file
Clear ATP Clear the loaded ATP settings and reset all fields to the default values

Selecting Parts

Parts can be loaded 3 different ways into the ATP dialogue. If using a specific design application, it can be selected from the Design Application drop down menu. With a design application specified, the parts to process will be loaded from a list file in the Parts tab of the ATP dialogue. The list file is a list of all of the DXF files to be processed, along with additional information such as material, quantity, and rotation for each part.

If not using a list file from a supported design application, parts can be imported individually using the Selected Import Files option and then by selecting each file in the Parts tab. The ATP can also be used to toolpath parts from the current EnRoute workspace by selecting the Active Drawing option.

Loading an ATP File

ATP files can be used to save ATP settings to automatically configure future jobs. Layer mappings, strategies, nesting, and output options can all be saved to an ATP file so processing a new job can be as simple as loading an ATP file and generating output.
