Thermwood CNC Mobile App

The Thermwood Mobile App now has a new feature - the ability to view your Thermwood CNC router through your web cam. 

This is a convenient way to watch your machine remotely. 

How it Works

You set up your own web cam (must be an SSL enabled camera for security), and host it on a web page you control.  Then, inside the Thermwood app, you can enter in the address of your camera feed (on your hosted page), and access it through the app.

More Details

This feature is not designed to be used as a remote management or operation tool, only as an access point in the app that points to the host of your choice.  It is only designed to be used as a viewer, not for remote operation of your machine.

Recommended Camera

Thermwood recommends the Axis P5514 PTZ Camera, but any SSL enabled camera that you can host on your site should work.  Note:  Thermwood will not be able to provide technical support on your camera or hosting platform, only on our app.

Thermwood Adds "CNC Access" to its Award Winning Cut Centers!

Posted by Duane Marrett on Wed, Jun 17, 2015

Operate the Cut Center as a CNC Router or a Cut Center!

Now Operate the Cut Center as a CNC router with "CNC Access"

Since the introduction of Thermwood's innovative and award-winning Cut Ready Cut Center, we've received requests to allow access to CNC functions of the Cut Center while also preserving the basic Cut Center functionality and simplicity of operation.

To address these requests, Thermwood is proud to announce we have added “CNC Access” to our Cut Center machine. This gives you the following expanded flexibility: 

  • You can operate the system solely as a Cut Center with no CNC Programming required.
  • You can also operate the system as a CNC router in the traditional manner, running programs generated with virtually any CNC software.
  • Plus, using eCabinet Systems software and following specific design protocols, you can custom design products and add them to the Cut Center libraries and then those items can be machined by the Cut Center with no further programming (Note:  In addition to doing it yourself, Thermwood offers this type of product development as an optional service).

Best of Both Worlds:  Switch Between a CNC router and a Cut Center

Thermwood has created a simple way to switch between operating as a CNC router and operating as a Cut Center to assure that all machine parameters are properly reset and that the standard Cut Center tooling is properly installed, checked and ready to run.

Operate as a Cut Center or as a CNC Router - the best of both worlds!

We believe this approach dramatically expands the capability and flexibility of the Thermwood Cut Center, without losing its ease of use, yet still providing technical users new options to benefit from this new technology. 

The Bottom Line...

Thermwood Corporation’s Cut Ready Cut Center with new "CNC Access", for the first time, allows people without extensive programming or CNC training to quickly and easily make a wide variety of products including cabinets, closets, furniture, doors, drawers and more. Don't have extensive programming experience?  Have programming experience and want both the flexibility of a CNC router and the ease of use of a Cut Center?  Looking for a machine that will grow with your business?  Then Thermwood's Cut Ready Cut Center with new "CNC Access" is the machine for you!
