SCHOTT SYSTEME - Machining Enhancements at the METAV 2020 Exhibition

CAD CAM Software News - CAM Enhancements       German software developer SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH are starting the year by introducing their latest Pictures by PC CAD/CAM software update on the METAV 2020 exhibition in Düsseldorf.

The update is an addition to their existing Pictures by PC version 3.8, and includes new functionality for both 3D and 2.5D prismatic machining.

Adding to their existing HPC (High Performance Cutting) capabilities, new toolpath algorithms written by SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH facilitate the generation of HPC toolpaths on even more complex 3D geometry (solids, surfaces and mesh models - STL). Machinists also have more control, such as the implementation of differing 3D offset values in the XY and Z directions. This control is also added to their existing range of 3D HSC (High Speed Cutting) finishing operations such as spiral and hybrid machining.

Enhancements to 2.5D prismatic machining include spiral contouring (a continuous fluid spiral toolpath without stepped Z increments) and 2D finishing with multiple side increments (within a single operation).

For those working with plate material, a new automatic tagging routine also ensures parts remain fixed in position after milling. Typical 2.5D prismatic parts also gain from improvements to the software's existing hole and pocket recognition tools, whereby features now result in the generation of corresponding CAM operations and tooling.

The end of 2019 also saw 35 years of product continuity for SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH, with their original Pictures by PC software first being released back in 1983. During this time, users have benefited from continued free software support without maintenance costs. This is in stark contrast to the increase in software ownership costs generally associated with CAD/CAM software.

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).

 

  • At 1st Mold, we make aluminum tools for plastic injection molding. We mill our complex and high-precision forms using Pictures by PC. What we particularly appreciate about Pictures by PC is the ability to program routines to automate the creation of milling programs. It should also be mentioned that all the software’s functions are accessible as source code so that they can also be easily adapted. The support is very competent and helps should questions about programming arise. Even with the software updates, you can see that SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH takes user requests and information seriously and integrates them into the software.

  • 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.
