Step 6.2. Configure FANUC Controls in CimEdit

Several FANUC Controls are provided with the HMI for CNC software. You can use them to view and monitor CNC data.

Each FANUC control can have one or more methods that you can access in CimEdit using the object properties dialog box.

 Guidelines for associating a CimEdit screen with a Project

You can associate a CimEdit screen that you create with any of your HMI for CNC projects by simply copying the .cim file into the Screens folder for the Project. When the file is copied into the Screens folder, it is available in the project and can be viewed in the right pane of the Workbench by clicking the Screens icon in the directory.
