BretonSmartCam EVOLUTION: Software CAD/CAM of cutting centres with 3 interpolated axes

BretonSmartCam EVOLUTION is a CAD/CAM software to draw and program complex stone workpieces, for cutting centres with three interpolated axes.
The CAM module allows to carry out the following major functions:
- cutting of slabs with saw blade
 - profiling, rough-hewing and trimming with saw blade.
- exterior/interior shaping of small blocks with saw blade.
- hole drilling.

If paired with the "BretonLathe" optional module, the software also allows 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.

The 3D SOLID SIMULATION module allows:
- to check any possible tool-piece and/or tool-machine collision
- to calculate 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.
