SprutCAM hints what kind of error is reported Main сontentsContents

7 Lathe tool Lathe tool selection is simplified with special filter. SprutCAM automatically selects appropriate tool from users tools library considering machined material, type and parameters of machining Operation type Workpiece material Machining conditions Tools library Main сontentsContents

8 Lathe machining Optimal technology selection is based on the part design, workpiece geometry and machining conditions Example of toolpath calculation of lathe machining including roughing, finishing, drilling and beveling operations Part and Workpiece contours 3D model of the part, created by rotating a 2D contour Toolpath Machining simulation Main сontentsContents

11 Option of the equipment The description of kinematics of the machine tool is accessible in format XML (a text file). The qualified user can independently describe the scheme of the machine and add it in library. It has no restriction on quantity of units and controlled axes.

13 Parametres of 5 axis strategy 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 Contact by a tool end face Contact by a side surface of the tool Main сontentsContents

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. Removal of the material by side surface of a cylindrical mill along a fragment wall molded forms of a wheel disk Main сontentsContents

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 сontentsContents

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 сontentsContents

19 Roughing machining Roughing waterline features clear flats option to machine material that is not cut by the part forming tool travel. Roughing plane operation features: Optional upwards only travel along the Z axis within layer; Optional control of max angle of cutting plunge along the Z axis; Roughing waterline Roughing plane Main сontentsContents

20 Roughing drive operation Driving curve of the tool travel can be a user-defined contour or any edge curves of the machined part. Advantages of the roughing drive operation — low volumes of residual material and jagging-free machined surfaces. Main сontentsContents

21 Finishing drive machining Toolpath is calculated alogn the driving curves over the machined part’s surface. Edge curves of the machined model can be assigned as the driving curves. Machined areaJob assignment by a driving curve Toolpath Tool travel along the outer edge of the part’s model Main сontentsContents

22 Complex machining Finishing waterline Finishing plane Finishing complex Residual material Main сontentsContents

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

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

25 Rest machining Finishing rest machining of residual material is used to achieve greater surface precision and reduce machining time. SprutCAM automatically detects unmachined areas. Use any finishing strategy to machine those areas. Residual material Residual material machining Main сontentsContents

26 Machining with restricted areas SprutCAM supports machining with restricted areas. Restrictions can be defined by geometry models, 2D geometry drafts, single surfaces or surface groups of the part itself. Restrictions model Machining result Workpiece model Part model Main сontentsContents

27 The mechanism of comparison of workpiece with part of a detail allows to display evidently a remaining material allocating sites of a detail with various value of an stocks. The user can independently set values of stocks and tolerance of their display. Machining result with part compare Initial 3D model Window of control parameter to visualizations remaining of the stocks Toolpath of machining the pocket’s beveled walls by the conical mill Machining simulation of wall machining operation Result of the use of function of visualization of stocks (blue sites signalize about presence of the remaining material in size more than 0,01) Pocketing operationMachining simulation resultResult of the use of function of visualization of stocks (dark blue sites signalize about presence of the remaining material in size more than 0,1) Main сontentsContents

28 Rotary axis SprutCAM can produce NC-programs for machines equipped with rotarting heads or rotating tables. Rotary axes can be defined without machine element positions restrictions in the work area of the machine. Rotary axis of rotating device can be specified either as a line parallel to one of coordinate axes and passing through specified point or a line passing through two points in the machine coordinate system. Rotating toolhead Rotating table Main сontentsContents

29 New simulation engine is used for both visual representation of machining allowing to preciselly track the process of workpiece transformation and to use the result of simulation in following operations as a workpiece allowing optimized toolpath calculation. Simulation engine Toolpath calculated for the part regarding the previous machining Workpiece for the next operationToolpath of the pocketing operation with workpiece as the machining result of previous operations Obtained workpiece after the pocketing operation for the next machining Initial workpiece for lathe-milling machining Workpiece after simulation of previous operations Machining result Main сontentsContents

31 The interactive measures allows to determine geometrical characteristics of surfaces as models, and results of machining: the radiuses, the linear and angular sizes. As a rule, the received sizes are used for setting of parameters of the tool. In most cases now the geometrical model is enough for development of workflow.

36 Sections Intersect function to create sections Preview of the section Section’s curves A section is a parametrical element of the geometrical model. The section object is added into a folder of the geometrical tree to automatically receive intersection curves of all faces and meshes from the folder with the defined section plane. Properties of new section Main сontentsContents

37 Projection of model elements The function is used for the construction of outer enveloping projections of the selected surfaces and meshes onto the XY plane of the current coordinate system. In addition to surfaces borders the function allow to project ordinary curves on the plane. The curves it creates can be used when assigning parameters for machining operations. Selected surface Project function to create projections Properties of created projection Curves of the projection of element Group of curves of projection Curves of the projection of element Main сontentsContents

38 Helical machining When helical machining is used to machine along flat curves SprutCAM forms toolpath helics along the Z axis whose projections to XY plane coincide with the machined curve.
