The import of Fanuc, OTC, and Universal Robots back-ups have been improved now with the ability to import additional information from the controller into OCTOPUZ 2.0.3. Users can now import FANUC controller back-ups with multiple robots and a single controller allowing the users to more easily create programs and configure cells in OCTOPUZ 2.0.3. New to OCTOPUZ, users can now import Universal Robots and OTC back-ups to bring in robot parameters and improve the accuracy in offline programming.

Furthermore, users who have upgraded their Mastercam package to Mastercam 2019 can now easily import their CAM paths into OCTOPUZ to leverage the newly introduced features in toolpath creation.

In addition to these main features, there were other improvements made to the OCTOPUZ software including:

• Calculation of external values with default settings
• Identification of post capable robots
• Storing of previous external variables
• Half Plane Visualization
• AutoSave

If you are a current OCTOPUZ customer, your OCTOPUZ license will automatically update and you will be able to employ the latest enhancements right away.
