SCHOTT SYSTEME - Design and Machining with CAD/CAM Software Pictures by PC

CAD CAM Software News - 5 Axis Machining       German software developer SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH have released the latest version of their CAD/CAM software Pictures by PC.

Mould designers are firstly helped by the automatic splitting of parts at edges and silhouettes curves, enabling both the core and cavity surfaces of a form to be separated from one another. The existing solid, surface and mesh Hybrid Modeller within Pictures by PC has also been extended to support mesh offsetting, ideal for the creation of wall thicknesses on imported scanned STL mesh models.

HPC (High Performance Cutting) Trochoidal 3D Roughing is implemented to facilitate the dynamic and quick removal of harder materials. 3D Spiral Finishing enables the machining of steep and flat regions of a part, with a single toolpath that adjusts to maintain a maximum stepover relating the angle of the surface to machine. Additional improvements include 5 Axis Rotary Roughing and 4 Axis Spiral Finishing operations to reduce the programming and machining times on components that require milling from multiple directions.

The inclusion of a new 5 Axis Simulation also helps to ensure that possible collisions between the component, machine spindle, tool and holder, clamps and the machine table are highlighted, without the need for a full machine simulation.

All of the improvements complement SCHOTT SYSTEME’s existing range of milling, engraving, wire cutting and turning tools. This software includes free of charge support and standard machine post processors, without yearly maintenance costs.

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.
