Per the new SMI specification, the SMI TXT file now includes the two comment fields at the bottom of the output file.

Check.jpg NEW: Added Crippa SPF File Export

The new CRIPPA export capability allows for easy export to CRIPPA UII software. The format is a text file that is compatible with most CRIPPA benders that were released in early 2012 and on.

The bender data format is similar to the standard format, except that, for most CRIPPA benders, the rotations move in the opposite direction than most other benders. (CRIPPA standard: Clockwise is positive). VTube automatically builds the data, including reversed rotations into the SPF file.

The format includes the bender data and the cut length. Here is an example:

Creates this data:

R101=60.33     R131=0.00      R161=90.00     
R102=50.80     R132=135.00    R162=90.00     
R103=50.80     R133=0.00      R163=90.00     
R104=50.80     R134=-135.00   R164=90.00     
R105=50.80     R135=-1.00     R165=90.00     
R106=50.80     R136=-90.00    R166=90.00     
R107=50.80     R137=-90.00    R167=90.00     
R108=111.13    R138=0.00      R168=0.00
