What’s new

  1. MachineMaker: new interface, multiple robots support, the workpiece on the robot flange support;
  2. Added the ability to bind to the geometry of the machine when measuring with a tape measure

MachineMaker Updates

Updated the settings window in MachineMaker. Now all the settings are in one place and the interface has become the same both for designing a cell with a robot and for a CNC machine.

Now, when designing, you can add an unlimited number of 3D robot models in one cell.

After exporting a cell from MachineMaker to SprutCAM, you can design machining for several robots. Previously, such a cell was described manually in an XML file.

Important: you can add several robots of only one manufacturer

We have added support for a new tool type for robots 鈥 a workpiece. This means that the robot after the MachineMaker will be able to hold the workpiece on the flange for machining, such as grinding operations. Previously, this required editing the XML file manually.

New in measurement bindings

Added the ability to bind to the geometry of the machine when measuring with a tape measure.

The option can be enabled in the equipment visualization settings:

  1. Right-click on the machine icon to open a menu with equipment visualization settings
  2. Check the Snap to machine nodes checkbox
