BretonSmartCam FRAME: Software CAD/CAM for 5 axis bridge saw

BretonSmartCam FRAME software for the drawing and programming (CAD/CAM) of shaping and cutting centres with up to 5 axes. 
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.
- 3D engraving of Windows "True Type" fonts on flat surfaces.
 
- shaping, profiling, hole drilling, milling and hollowing out with millers or shaped tools.
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 work bench
 
- interface with the software of a possible laser projector for arranging the vacuum cups on the work bench
- 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 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 characteristics of the machine.
