Holzma saw integration with OptiCut, PTX file format, HolzLink interface
OptiCut Pro PP comes with a range of post processors that will drive most CNC saws.
All transfers to Holzma saws should go through the PTX file format and OptiCut’s PTX post processor.
You can see from the image above that OptiCut in fact has two PTX post processors for Holzma. PTX 1.15 works with more recent saws, PTX 1.02 and 1.08 works with older models.
Holzma saws normally come with a HolzLink controller interface, this converts external PTX files into SAW files.
The SAW file format is the internal Holzma file format, but for technical reasons it cannot be generated by external software like OptiCut directly.
Please first check if your saw is equipped with the HolzLink controller interface. If so, we’re happy to provide test files before you order. You can also access test files from the sample output download we’ve created, available from the OptiCut download page.
If in doubt, please get in touch so we can help you identify the best option for your saw.
