Contact by a tool end face Contact by a side surface of the tool The way of contact of the tool with a surface of part can be made an end face of the tool, a site surface of the tool, or with the fixed position of an axis of the tool Main сontents Contents

14 Strategy of 5 axis machining
Strategy of 5 axis machining by isoparametrical lines UV gives the chance to increase essentially productivity in typical cases, for example at the expense of processing of facets by a side surface of a cylindrical mill, machinings radius roundings off the corresponding tool.

17 G-code calculation in machine coordinates
Key advantage SprutCAM is possibility toolpath generation in coordinates of the concrete machine tool. It became possible thanks to application of the kinematic scheme the machine. Toolpath generation in coordinates of the concrete machine allows is realistic to visualise machine tool work as a whole. Universal the algorithm of recalculation of a toolpath in a machine tool axis forms optimum G-code even if the scheme describes the machine tool having more 5 axis operated. For reception of the G-code on other machine tool, it is enough to choose other scheme and to count toolpath. Thus, the postprocessor defines only syntax the G-code also does not make the geometrical calculations. The given fact minimises probability of occurrence Errors in G-code after it has been checked in a Simulation mode. Main сontents Contents

18 Milling strategies Part machining project is composed of separate technology operations each of them providing set of machining parameters and produces toolpath according to designed strategy Main сontents Contents

23 Controlled scallop feature
Residual material When scallop control option enabled, SprutCAM calculates toolpath for the operation considering the specified by the technologist maximum scallop value between nearing tool passes. The same area with the scallop option enabled Toolpath optimization is used to specify minimum allowed distance between passes to avoid excessive density of passes on some areas of the part Main сontents Contents

24 Optimized plane operation
Finishing plane operation The plane operation leaves larger scallops on the plumb areas of the model. Optimized plane operation Optimized plane automatically assigns appropriate machining angles on special areas of the part to avoid scalloping. Main сontents Contents
