Crosspieces function
In order for the cut out pieces not to fall out from the sheet, you can leave several crosspieces on their contours. After the cutting, the cross pieces are cut and the parts are taken out from the sheet.

SprutCAM has the following modes for detecting crosspieces:
  • machining without crosspieces;
  • a definite number of crosspieces is set, hence we get an even number of crosspieces for all the curves;
  • number of crosspieces for each curve is variable and depends on its length;
  • number of crosspieces for each curve is variable and depends on its surface area.
Automatic schemes for angle passing
In order to avoid the bad angle cutting of the part, the system has several methods of forming of tool path in the angles. The passing of the angles can be set automatically or manually, depending on the angle.
Contour cutting sequence optimization according to the lengths of the passes, taking into consideration the inner contours
The contour cutting sequence is determined automatically, taking into consideration the inner contours.
This has to be done in order to avoid the untimely cutting out of a part with uncut parts inside.
Besides that, the system provides the optimization of the machining sequence taking into account the length of the passes between parts.
Automatic detection of the optimal approach points to the workpiece contour with a simultaneous control of the approaching and withdrawal of the cut of the neighbouring parts
The system has an automatic creation of the positions for the tool penetration, depending on the approach chosen, avoiding a cutting of the neighbouring parts.
Avoiding passes over already machined zones
Often, the machined piece will bend because of the thermo treatment and it can break when the cutter head is moved above it. In order to avoid such situations, the passes between cutting in points can be done above the unmachined zones of the sheet. When the function is turned off, the passes will be made following the shortest distance between the points. When the function is turned on, the passes are made in such a way, that the cutter head avoided passing above the already cut out contours.
3D cutting simulation
The NC code is checked in the machining simulation mode. The cutting simulation assures visual control of the quality of the NC code.
