Pictures by PC CAM Software for 3D Freeform Machining

 

3D Freeform Machining (Roughing, Finishing)

Pictures by PC enables the 3D rough and finish machining of freeform models (solids, surfaces and meshes). Proven machining strategies are applied with a single mouse click, and altered to suit. Toolpaths can be simulated (incl. stock material, tooling and clamping components), and translated into NC code using a machine post processor. NC worksheets are created to display required tooling and cutting times.

 

Trochoidal High Performance Cutting (HPC) - High Speed Cutting (HSC)

High speed cutting (HSC) increases the removal rate of material by utilising higher feeds, speeds and tangential toolpath connections.Typical finishing strategies include contour orientated, spiral or hybrid machining. The later is ideal for reducing programming times, by generating toolpaths to match both steep and flat areas on the geometry within a single operation.

 

Topology and Rest Material Recognition

Feature recognition identifies areas of freeform 3D CAD geometry to machine (plane and tapered faces, chained radii, freeform pockets). Rest material recognition highlights areas that require re-machining after finishing operations. Automatic bounding contours contain the rest material machining. Support for multi-threading toolpath calculation ensures short calculation times of complex components on rudimentary hardware.

  • We work at several workstations with the CAD / CAM software Pictures by PC, mainly to undertake our machining tasks (we are a classic injection mould maker). I find the efficiency of the support / service particularly impressive. I was always helped promptly, patiently, competently and in a friendly manner. The topics dealt with went much deeper than just using the software. Suggestions for enhancements are welcomed and taken on board for future versions. We look back on a long-term cooperation with SCHOTT SYSTEME, we consider the strong customer focus of Schott as an absolute added value.

  • We need high-performance software with a high degree of flexibility by the construction and, at the same time, the best possible support by the production. In SCHOTT SYSTEME we have found a reliable partner. Pictures by PC has been continuously developed in Germany, since over 35 years, and thanks to their computer-based licensing we have full cost control and absolute data sovereignty, which is an important factor for our company.
