SprutCAM for mill-turn: milling and turning programming in one software
Turn-mill toolpath calculation in SprutCAM PDM
Optimisation of the CNC programming sequence with SprutCAM PDM
Our Cam Software calculates toolpath in the native kinematics of the CNC machine.
What does this mean to the user?
This means that toolpath calculation considers collisions between moving parts of the machine between themselves and with the workpiece and exits beyond the axis limits.
You do not need to postprocess the NC code to simulate the real-world result. All machine movements are visible immediately after the toolpath calculation.
CNC programming becomes visual, workflow is streamlined.
Optimized sequence of CNC programming
We can perform turning and milling toolpaths in any order. The workpiece for each next operation is the result of all the previous ones. You can see the current state of the workpiece at every moment.
In the screenshot, green is a part, and orange the result of all previous operations by this stage. At the same time it is a workpiece for the next operation.
All turning and milling toolpath strategies are suitable for mill-turn programming
Polar interpolation support
If the movement range along the Y-axis is very tight, or the Y-axis is absent, the polar interpolation option can be enabled in SprutCAM PDM.
Then the displacement along Y will be replaced by the C-axis.
