Updates

Interactive change of feed along the machining contour

Added new functionality for 4D and 5D contour operations. Now for the selected machining contour, you can define feed sections that are different from the cutting feed of the entire operation.

Thus it is possible to add two or more sections. And also fine-tune the size of the area and enable a gradual change in feed in percent or in steps.

The functionality is still being finalized and tested for convenience. Later, we will release a detailed video about the principles of work.

Updated the „Extrude by Curves“ window for defining a workpiece

In SprutCAM, you can define a workpiece in four ways: load a 3D model of a workpiece, select one of seven primitives, rotate around an axis or by extruding contours.

The window used to be like this:

It became like this:

In this update, we added the ability to select the direction of extrusion directly when selecting a path.
