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.

  • Pictures by PC is unique in terms of freedom and the number of possible machining strategies, regardless of whether it is 3-axis or 5-axis milling, turning or engraving. We are able to manufacture extremely complex parts in special alloys. I am always impressed by what the software can do. These abilities confirm that we chose the right software back in the nineties.

  • 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.
