Pictures by PC is a cost-effective, complete CAD / CAM and IT software package for design, construction, CNC manufacturing and technical documentation with more than 30 years of development continuity.
2D / 3D CAD Construction
Complete 2D CAD for creating DIN/ISO compliant drawings, 3D design of mechanical parts including sheet metal and steel frames, as well as 3D modelling and modification of freeform parts (volumes, surfaces, meshes).
3D Freeform Modelling
Sculpt and create aesthetically pleasing forms using our hybrid solid, surface and mesh modeller.
Render, Animation, Presentation
Create stunning sales and marketing visuals using photo realistic rendering, animation, stereo and virtual reality presentations.
Graphic, Design, Documentation
Create posters, brochures and leaflets with Pictures by PC's graphic design tools. Design manuals, technical documentation and assembly instructions.
Multi-Axis Drilling and Milling
2.5D and 3+2 axis milling, drilling and engraving. Highlights include automatic feature recognition (pocket and hole) as well as (HPC) high performance trochoidal cutting.
3D Freeform Machining
Milling of freeform models (volumes, surfaces and meshes) including trochoidal high-performance milling (HPC) and high-speed finishing (HSC).
Engraving and Carving up to 5 Axis
Industrial engraving of front panels, signs, moulds and jewellery. Bitmap vectorisation, 3D reliefs from grayscale photos and 3D wrapping and projection of engravings.
Simultaneous Milling, Trimming, Engraving
4 and 5 axis simultaneous roughing and finishing. Simultaneous milling of undercut regions with collision control (tool, holder, machine head, clamping components).
2 and 4 Axis Wire Cutting
2 and 4 axis wire cutting with individual setup of pre and post cuts. Automatic detection of pockets and holes.
Turning and Turn/Mill
Roughing and finishing of turn profiles (facing, grooving, threading and drilling). Full support for C-axis, Y-axis and B-axis milling and drilling.
For more than 35 years, SCHOTT SYSTEME GmbH has developed and marketed comprehensive software solutions for graphics, design, CAD design, CAM / CNC production, product presentations, documentation and special applications.
