2.5D Laser Engraving using Polaris CAD/CAM

This video illustrates loading an engraving design file, configuring parameters, compiling and setting the program to run. The job is processed immediately when the run button is pressed.


Laser Cross Hatching a Closed Shape using Polaris CAD/CAM

In this video, the Polaris Logo is presented as a collection of closed shapes in a DXF file. The file is loaded, and cross hatching parameters are set. The program is then compiled and executed on the laser CNC machine.


Laser Etching a PCB using Polaris CAD/CAM

In this video, a Gerber file is imported into Polaris CAD/CAM. It is then prepared with settings and compiled. When the run button is pressed, the job is executed on the laser CNC machine. The PCB is larger than the Galvoscanner field of view. Infinite field of view (IFOV) is used to complete the job with stopping. The Galvoscanner motion is automatically synchronized and coordinated with the stage.


Optical Inspection of a PCB using Polaris CAD/CAM

When the PCB has been etched, optical inspection is carried out using the machine vision (MV) capability of Polaris CAD/ACM. The positional offset between the laser and the machine vision camera are known. The softweare uses that information to locate features on the PCB easily.
