SprutCAM X is a CAD/CAM software that takes into account the CNC machine model limitations during the toolpath calculation. Same about rest material during all machining stages.
Taking in account kinematics and rest material on every step
All the limitations of the machine model kinematics and the actual rest material that remains after previous operations and the fixture(s) geometry are used to calculate the toolpath. The result of the calculation is not just the Cartesian points in abstract space; it’s the actual positions of the machine axes required to reach these points. This means that the CNC machine is 100% able to execute the generated program.
Immediately after the toolpath is calculated, SprutCAM X performs the simulation in the background and shows the new state of the workpiece. Using this result, user can easily decide how to adjust the parameters without waiting for simulation or postprocessing.
Thanks to this, the iterational process of CNC programming has much shorted period. And comparing to other CAD/CAM software the workflow itself i intuitive and clear.
