SprutCAM X 17 and SprutCAM X 17 Robot Released

LIMASSOL, Cyprus, Sep 12, 2023 – SprutCAM Tech announces the release of new versions of its flagship CAD/CAM/OLP software products, SprutCAM X and SprutCAM X Robot of version 17.

How can we briefly describe SprutCAM X and SprutCAM X Robot of version 17? They represent CAD/CAM solutions for the next-generation makers and form an entire software ecosystem. They are the most powerful and functional versions to date but at the same time easy to learn and use. Now, let’s delve into a detailed description of the innovations introduced in version 17 and its key new features.

SprutCAM X is a CAD/CAM system that is ideally suited for the next-generation makers

The today’s engineers prefer to explore software independently to quickly begin using it. Therefore, SprutCAM X 17 and SprutCAM X Robot 17 are equipped with Éncy, the SprutCAM X virtual AI assistant, the first in the CAD/CAM industry, which opens new learning opportunities for G-code proficiency.
When it comes to programming industrial robots that handle parts of incredible shapes, enormous dimensions, and various materials, SprutCAM X Robot, an all-in-one CAD/CAM/OLP solution, has almost no rivals in robot milling applications. Considering the wide range of applications of SprutCAM X Robot, including welding, additive manufacturing, pick-and-place, assembly, painting, trimming, and more, we position to SprutCAM X Robot as an all-in-one CAD/CAM/OLP solution for complex and creative robotics tasks.

SprutCAM X Robot 17 introduces new features:

  • An updated Point Pick and Place operation to move objects from one location to another using a robotic arm. Now you can create any number of nodal points and move the end effector through them.
  • New Spray group operations, including contour spraying, surface spraying, morph spraying, and rotary spraying.
  • Improvements in the redundant axes optimizer, including the display of boundaries of periodic axes on the map.

The Most Powerful Version Yet

One of the most highly anticipated innovations in version 17 is Multiproject, which streamlines workflow for improved time efficiency and allows for the simple reuse of similar approaches across multiple projects.
The Snapshots feature is another significant addition, functioning like an Undo feature for CAM workflow. It automatically creates snapshots triggered by events, offers rapid Undo functionality through the snapshots list, and provides a snapshot manager for convenient preview.

The Machine Setup File is a significant time-saver, especially for users who work on many projects with typical parts. It enables the easy and quick transfer of machine digital twins, settings, and tools from a ready-made template.

The Machining Report has been completely reworked, offering report generation with only relevant content, swift report generation, high-quality image output, a fresh and intuitive user interface, advanced expert mode with extensive settings, fine-grained control over the graphic scene, export functionality in multiple formats, and a diverse selection of report templates.

The Most Functional Version Yet

In version 17, special attention is given to 3-axis operations. For example, the Roughing Waterline operation now offers new features like seamless integration of rest machining in corners, accelerated calculation speed by 30-40% (using a single core of the processor), significantly enhanced stability, simulation features that emphasize cutting during non-cutting feed movements, and simulation features that highlight incorrect plunges.

A new operation for 3-axis milling, Undercut Waterline, is introduced, supporting any kind of undercut tools (lollipop, disk tool, slot tool, etc.), adaptive rough passes, and multicore calculation.

5-axis Solid Simulation with unprecedented tolerance is added, particularly beneficial when using very small tools with large stock, such as Wire EDM or laser cutting operations.

SprutCAM X Ecosystem

SprutCAM X 17 is more than just CAD/CAM software; it represents a complete digital production universe.
The introduction of a new Online Project Library offers a cloud-based platform to facilitate collaboration and project sharing among SprutCAM X developers, partners, and customers.

MachineMaker, a digital twin builder for robotic cells and CNC machines, now supports milling machines with optional axes, turn-mill machines, and Swiss-type machines. The addition of a new interactive simplifier allows you to remove some elements from the digital twin of a machine to speed up your work in MachineMaker.

The built-in CAD module receives optimized menus and windows for HD monitors, improved performance and stability, added new operations: fillets and chamfers, and enhanced Boolean operations. Additionally, new sketching features are introduced.

SprutCAM X: Easy to Learn and Use

New smart hints are introduced to quickly navigate the parameters, making them interactive and intuitive, aiding new users in navigating hundreds of technological parameters.

Design and interface improvements have been made in SprutCAM X 17, with evolutionary changes ensuring a better color balance for long work and consistent interface design across various second-level windows. These changes result in one window for everything, keeping all necessary tools at hand, and a laconic and straightforward design that eliminates distractions and maintains a consistent workflow.
