Geometrical model

A geometric model can be prepared in any CAD system and be imported in SprutCAM using the file formats:

  • IGES (*.igs, *.iges)
  • DXF (*.dxf)
  • STL (*.stl)
  • VRML (*.wrl)
  • PostScript (*.ps, *.eps)
  • Parasolid text (*.x_t, *.xmt_txt)
  • Parasolid binary (*.x_b, *.xmt_bin)
  • Rhinoceros (*.3dm)
  • Sprut Models (*.sgm)
  • Step (*.stp, *.step)

The first part of the process is to import a file which contains the geometric information for the model, make corrections to the structure of the geometric model, make any spatial transformations of geometric objects, create new elements based on existing ones, as well as adjust the visual attributes of an object.

Access to the elements of a model is gained through the model structure window, and by making use of the interactive on screen options.

The new interface of the system includes animated views and also multi-windows support facility allowing tuning of the display; this allows the user to observe the model in several projections simultaneously.

  • Unrestricted complexity of a geometric model and on the number of elements
  • Full support of solid, surface, grid and curvilinear geometric objects
  • Correct machining of gaps and seams between surfaces
  • Analysis and automatic correction of faulty surfaces
  • Spatial transformations of the whole, or parts of the model
  • Measurement of a geometric parameter of a model or its components
  • Creation of curves by projecting onto a flat plane, the external borders of 3D model or, its separate surfaces
  • Interactive creation and controlling of coordinate systems
  • Two-dimensional geometric constructions in integrated environment
  • Simultaneous graphical and textual representation of 2D-objects
  • Powerful tools for the construction of parametric geometric models
  • Geometric calculator
