1. What is Coreo Command?  Part of the Coreo software suite, Command is the machine tool operator module. It opens CAM, XML, and image files, allows a limited amount of editing and previewing, and ultimately runs the file on the machine tool.  Available in three levels of increasing features, selected versions of Command can also support job printing & barcode, run-time calculations, graphical-type controls, real-time feedback, email notifications, mobile app interface, and processing of CAD files.

2. What is the Active Material, and how is it specified?  The Active Material is the working material (wood, plastic, steel, etc.) that’s intended to be cut during the current Job.  The user designates both the Active Material, as well as its thickness.
The Active Material is set by clicking on Command’s Execution tab, upper-left of the screen, then ensuring that the vertical Process tab (upper center-left of screen) is selected, and finally reviewing the Job Panel (pane left of screen) for the Active Material field.  The present Active Material is seen in the white data entry field.  Clicking in the field will reveal buttons enabling the user to add or delete a material, and also edit material properties.  Users can also select a previously defined material by using the available drop-down list.

3. What is a Process, and how is the Default Process set?
Command uses “Processes,” collections of parameter settings (cut speed, depth, etc.), that a user wants to define and use as a preferred method for cutting into a particular material and thickness.  For example, you might use one Process, hypothetically named “Process HW075,” for cutting 0.75 inch hardwood and a different Process for cutting 0.125 inch hardwood, and yet another one for cutting aluminum of any thickness.

Command automatically calls up the Default Process each time the user specifies the associated material and thickness.  Thus, for example, each time a user specifies cutting 0.75 inch hardwood, Command will automatically call up “Process HW075.”

Similar to setting the Active Material, above, the Default Process for a particular material and thickness is set by clicking on Command’s Execution tab, upper-left of the screen, then ensuring that the vertical Process tab (upper center-left of screen) is selected, and finally reviewing the Job Panel (pane left of screen) for the Default Process field.  Clicking in the white data entry field will reveal buttons to add or delete a Process, and also open a Process overview window.  Users can set the Default Process for the material and thickness they’re presently running by using the + sign to establish a new Process, or by using the drop-down list to select a previously existing one.

4. Can files be edited in Command before they're run? 
Yes, within limits.  Instead of having to reverse the production work flow to make minor adjustments, Command allows users to make modest edits to the work piece file, perhaps while at the machine tool.  Examples of possible edits includes moving, rotating, and scaling the object.  Shape or line irregularities can be smoothed out, and objects can also be cloned.  Additionally, offsets can be adjusted, and the sequence of step execution can be modified.  For more extensive editing, Coreo Design is the primary shape creating & editing tool in the suite, while tool pathing and nesting tasks are performed in Coreo Build.
