Pictures by PC CAD Software for 2D / 3D CAD Construction

 

2D Layouts and Mechanical Drafting

Create 2D layouts, plans and production drawings. Highlights include mechanical detailing such as DIN/ISO drawing borders, dimensioning, geometric tolerancing, surface texture symbols, detail views, screw connections, bearings, springs and more. Create 2D symbol libraries or select symbols from a range of standard libraries (electronic, hydraulic, steel profiles etc.).

 

3D Mechanical Modelling

3D hybrid (solid, surface, mesh) modelling facilitates the creation of 3D models using features such as primitives, extrusion, rotation, sweeping, skinning and more. Direct modelling (surface offset, taper, move, rotate) enables the flexible modification of solid geometry including imported STEP, SAT and IGES models.

 

Sheet Metal and Framing

Sheet metal component creation including flanges and HEM double flanges (control over length, angle, bend radius, flange location). Automatic and manual cut back of corners complete with the generation of unfolded 2D flat patterns to K factor values. Steel framing is also included for the creation of 2D/3D DIN/ISO and user defined framework (e.g. DIN 1024/1025) complete with automatic corner mitering.

No Maintenance Fees Since 1984

When you purchase our Pictures by PC CAD / CAM software, you acquire a perpetual license. This means that the license can be used on a workstation with no time limit and no annual maintenance costs. The software license is linked to the computer.

 

Transparent Pricing

Straightforward pricing with no hidden costs. Post processors for standard CNC controls are free of charge and can be generated and modified by the user.

 

Free Software Support Since 1984

Our customers receive free software support via e-mail and telephone, directly from our software development team (Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm).

 

  • The areas that we have to cover in our daily work are extremely well represented by Pictures by PC. First and foremost, we create 3D constructions that are machined using the CAM. It often happens that we have to alter customer data. The manufacturability of the injection molded parts is sometimes not 100% checked by the client, requiring us to then change this 3D data so that it works in an injection molding tool. Pictures by PC is ideal for this.
    Rudolf Euler
  • Without good CAD / CAM software such as with Pictures by PC, the ever more complex construction and mould making processes are not possible. Particularly noteworthy with SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH is the free support, and as they are the actual maker of the software, any questions or problems we have are answered promptly. The large number of standard post processors that are available and the problem-free adaptation should also be mentioned - The software forms a cornerstone of our success.
