BRETON SMARTCAM FRAME

SOFTWARE CAD/CAM TO DRAW AND PROGRAM SHAPING AND CUTTING CENTRES WITH UP TO 5 AXIS

The CAM module allows to carry out the following major functions on work planes with indexed rotary axes:
  • cutting of slabs with saw blade;
  • profiling, rough-hewing, trimming and exterior/interior shaping of small blocks with saw blade;
  • shaping, profiling, hole drilling, milling and hollowing out with millers or shaped tools;
  • polishing of tops (even inclined tops);
  • milling and polishing of grooves on tops (even inclined tops);
  • 3D engraving of Windows "True Type" fonts on flat surfaces;
  • bas-reliefs imported from digitized surfaces.
If paired with the "BretonLathe" optional module, the software also allows:
  • to execute bas-reliefs on cylindrical columns, which are imported from digitized flat or cylindrical surfaces
  • to 3D engrave Windows "True Type" fonts on flat and cylindrical surfaces
  • to grind a twisted groove on columns generated by the revolution of a 2D profile and finish them, using a saw blade

The CAD module allows to carry out the following major functions:
  • generation of 2D drawings with relevant dimensions
  • determination of the 3D working volume of the piece
  • determination of any working plane inside the generated 3D volume
  • management of a 2D drawing created on the selected working plane, no matter how it is oriented in the space
  • import of drawings in DXF and DWG format from external CAD or template detectors
  • positioning of the pieces to be produced directly on the image of the slab, so as to utilize its surface to the full
  • automatic programming and display of the vacuum cup arrangement on the worktable
  • interface with the software of a possible laser projector for arranging the vacuum cups on the worktable
  • interface with the software of a possible bas-relief digitizer
  • generation of 3D models of the pieces
  • import of surfaces and solid models in IGES, STL, STEP and 3DM format
  • generation of surfaces and bas-reliefs from image processing
  • generation of 2D drawings of vanity and kitchen tops, whose dimensions are set starting from a basic template

3D SOLID SIMULATION MODULE

The 3D SOLID SIMULATION module allows:
- to check any possible tool-piece and/or tool-machine collision
- to assess the raw material remaining after the machining

The software operates in a Windows environment, is intuitive and user-friendly.
N.B. The software features may be limited by the technological and operational features of the machine.
