What’s new

  1. Updated thread tables for turning operations
  2. Added option for parallel strategies: Machining order

Updated thread tables for turning operations

SprutCAM has operations for turning external and internal threads. In order not to fill in the parameters each time, thread libraries are connected to these operations. In this release, we have updated the libraries.

Libraries are:

  1. Compression HKT threads — Pump threads. PUMP AND COMPRESSOR PIPES GOST 633-80
  2. Cylindrical pipe thread — CYLINDRICAL PIPE THREAD – for B-class (external – external and internal – internal) GOST 6357-8
  3. ISO metric screw thread — Metric thread. GOST 16093-81 presents the main tolerance fields 6g/6H.

There is a special operation for profile threads in SprutCAM.

Option for parallel strategy: Machining order

Added an option for machining order for a parallel strategy.

If you are using this strategy for a finishing pass, you must select either Direct or Reverse machining order. Then there will be no different marks from the cutter on the surface.

Available for operations: Roughing waterline, Horizontal sections machining, Sampling, 2.5D Sampling.

Direct machining order – the cutter path along the surface will be strictly from top to bottom

Reverse machining order – the cutter path on the surface will be strictly from bottom to top

Optimal machining order – the cutter path on the surface can be either from top to bottom or from bottom to top
