API CUSTOMIZATION AND AUTOMATION

Every full-featured CAD-through-CAM system needs a way to customize and automate that system's operations. Which is why ANVIL EXPRESS provides both a native programming language and an applications programming interface (API) that allows you to use today's most popular programming environments for your custom CAD/CAM applications.


The GRAPL Programming Language

The GRAPL graphic application programming language is the native programming environment for the ANVIL EXPRESS system, and is included in the Design Drafter module. It can be used for:

  • User-created application programs
  • Automating complex and frequently repeated activities
  • Customizing ANVIL EXPRESS
  • Specialized data exchange

Both Windows-based and command line versions of the GRAPL build utilities are provided. In the Windows-based GRAPL program builder, you are only a few mouse clicks away from creating custom GRAPL programs that are ready to be executed inside ANVIL EXPRESS.


The Application Programming Interface

In addition to providing a native programming language, the ANVIL EXPRESS system includes an application programming interface (API) designed specifically for those who prefer to use Microsoft's Visual C++ or Visual Basic. This API provides system-level access to many ANVIL EXPRESS functions in a form that lets you work in today's most popular environments for writing custom applications.

Which means that, no matter which language you choose, ANVIL EXPRESS gives you the best tools available for customizing and automating its operations. Which is just one reason ANVIL EXPRESS is the must-have CAD-through-CAM system for the 21st Century.
