Equipment safety: collision control during toolpath calculation

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 collision control

Tool holder collisions are handled during toolpath calculation.

Moving parts collision control

Possible collisions between machine axes and the workpiece are handled during toolpath calculation.

Axis limits control

Axis limits are considered during toolpath calculation.

4-axis toolpath suite

Rotary machining special toolpaths

Rotary roughing

Rotary finishing

Profile machining (5d contour)

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.

The same as 3-axis plane finishing operation. Set the step to get the desired surface finish.
The most versatile operation. You can set curves as a job assignment.
