SPRUT Technology has presented SprutCAM 9.0. This new generation system works directly with the imported CAD data of the initial model (including NURBS-representation) without any preliminary approximation or triangulation, and automatically calculates and develops a very efficient toolpath for machining the model, which can be graphically simulated to allow the user to see any potential problems with the type of machining parameters chosen.
What's new in SprutCAM 9.0:
- Advanced Robot module
Advanced Robot module provides easy and intuitive programming of complex 3D motions of the robot effectors. This option extends robot machining features: bypass inaccessible positions and singularities with optimizer due to automatic robot axes map building.
- Morph operation
Morph operation generates a toolpath that smoothly morphs between two specified curves with high speed links. Available strategies include: Across, Along, Sprial. 3 to 5 axis toolpath with the following tool axis orientation modes: Fixed, Normal to drive curves 4d/rotary axis/drive curves 5d/surfaces 5d.- Feature based drilling
This feature recognizes all the holes in a part and conveniently displays them on the screen in a tree type structure. One can group holes by their type, plane, top or bottom level, or by color. It stores machining sequences that are used to machine a particular type of hole in a database and then automatically searches for similar holes in a new part and attaches the appropriate sequences to them. The best tools for machining the holes are automatically selected based upon the defined rules.
- Sawing operation
The Sawing operation is specifically designed for the fast programming of a saw blade for up to 5 axes milling of wood, marble, granite, stone and similar materials.
- Advanced Plasma module
Special operation for automatic programming plasma cutting. Easy selection of optimum cutting conditions based upon the thickness and physical properties of the material being processed. For multi-axis plasma machines and industrial robots.
- High speed cutting
Advanced Roughing strategy provides dramatically faster stock removal by maintaining constant tool load with a smooth toolpath leading to reduced cycle times, improved tool life and optimum surface finish.
Create custom operations with automatically selected parameters using rules (for example milling using shaped mills, multi axis laser/plasma cutting etc.) and direct access to any operation's parameters via Sprut IDE.
- Tool-axis modification
Interactive tool-axis modification in the 5D contouring operation allows adjustment of the tool axis direction manually at any position of the toolpath.
- Advanced multi axis machine control
An easy way to move machine nodes / axes using the mouse. It enables the checking of tool accessibility for any point on a part. This feature also enables the easy definition for tool transitions (rapids) between machining operations.
- Multi-Core calculation*
SprutCAM uses the latest technologies, including native 64-bit support SprutCAM is designed to take advantage of the modern workstation architecture up to 64 core systems.

About SprutCAM. SprutCAM includes powerful methods for lathes and mill/turn centers as well as all the features of the existing software for programming 3-axis and 3+2-axis machining centers.
The full associativity of SprutCAM machining with the SolidWorks design model reduces errors when the model changes and supports the process where updates are received for machine models. When the geometry used to define a machining operation is changed in the SolidWorks design, SprutCAM enables the user to automatically synchronize all machining operations with the updated geometry. The system will make it easy to program all machines in one system and work towards lean manufacturing by optimizing both milling and turning methods, while minimizing the levels of software investment.
The transparent workpiece graphics make it easy to see how the part is progressing and ensure that subsequent toolpaths consider the actual material remaining, which will avoid collisions and minimize air cutting. The advanced graphical toolpath high-precision simulation provides collision detection and accurate visualization of the toolpath. SprutCAM toolpath editing provides a powerful means of controlling the exact toolpath, while the customizable post-processor generator and post-processor library enable users to tailor the CNC code to suit their exact requirements.
SprutCAM is widely used in mechanical manufacturing, automotive and aerospace industries, electronics, mold and die shops, among others.
