All 3-axis toolpath strategies are available for 4 axis index machining.
SprutCAM has roughing toolpath for quick material removing and finishing toolpaths for the required surface quality for the 4-axis continuous machining.
SprutCAM takes into account machine axis limits for initial toolpath calculation. There is no need for postprocessing and separate simulation for collision and axis limits control.
Tool holder collisions are handled during toolpath calculation.
Possible collisions between machine axes and the workpiece are handled during toolpath calculation.
Axis limits are considered during toolpath calculation.
4-axis toolpath suite
An operation for removing a large amount of material. There are toolpaths for machining with spiral, circular, and linear passes. The entire circle or sector can be machined.
