The two newest software updates from SprutCAM Tech include support for robot providers ROKAE and Kawasaki.
Updates 17.0.14 and 17.0.15 for SprutCAM X and SprutCAM X Robot feature more than 200 changes and offer support for ROKAE and Kawasaki robots.

SprutCAM Tech, a Cyprus-based CAD/CAM/OLP software company, recently announced the launch of Updates 17.0.14 and 17.0.15 for SprutCAM X and SprutCAM X Robot.

The newest updates feature more than 200 changes and provide additional support for new robot models, including ROKAE Robotics and Kawasaki.

New functionalities in latest updates

According to the company, this update enhances various functionalities, including:

Support for new robot models: Added support for Kawasaki robots (BX300L model and others) in SprutCAM X Robot and MachineMaker. Additionally, support for 27 models of ROKAE robots has been added to MachineMaker. Kinematic models of these robots are now also available in the online Robot Library.

Profile Mode for Lathe Operations Enhancement: In Job Assignment for lathe operations, users can now adjust the chamfer angle in Profile cycle based on the 3D model, an improvement from the previous limitation of only being able to change the chamfer size.

User Experience Enhancements:

  • Updated pop-up hints for lathe machining, engraving, pocketing and chamfer machining operations.
  • Improved functioning of pinned Snapshots when clicking “Clear All” in Project Snapshots manager.
  • Enhanced overall performance of SprutCAM X and SprutCAM X Robot.
  • New feature, which allows users to save tutorials on post processor development as an archive file, enabling offline access.
  • Added Machine setup template for Swiss-type machines.
  • Increased speed of machining report generation with sketch output. The generation of sketches has been optimized, significantly reducing the Machining report generation time.
  • Updated Smart Hints for Lathe part off, 5D by meshes, Turn Takeover, 3D helical and Scallop operations.

Technical improvements in new SprutCAM updates

Along with the above updates, SprutCAM also said it offers technical improvements on prior releases.

Significant improvements have been made in 17.0.14 update, addressing some challenges across the software, according to the company. Notably, enhancements include fixing spline handling issues and refining the operation of vectors in 6D contour tasks. The update also resolves critical bugs such as the mishandling of network licenses and the visualization of 3D models in the tool library. The software

now correctly updates fixtures during “Rotate and Shift” operations and eliminates previous issues with machine node saving in MachineMaker. Additionally, it resolves a recurrent error during the trajectory calculation for cladding operations.

With Update 17.0.15, the company also fixed a critical error related to recalculating operations with the workpiece and errors when editing 4th and 6th axis limits for industrial robots. Importing step files no longer causes hangs, and the company resolved axes collision issues in the standard project included with SprutCAM X.

Errors in polar interpolation on lathes, collision avoidance options and 5D mesh operation calculations in standard projects have also been fixed. SprutCAM corrected bugs in various areas such as the safe surface level option for adaptive machining, TCP calibration app links and toolpath calculation in 6D Contour operation.

Additionally, issues with localization rollbacks, launching SprutCAM on Windows 7, and cutter shank operations were also resolved. Existing SprutCAM X and SprutCAM X Robot users with an active software maintenance contract have been notified about the new release and can upgrade at their earliest convenience to utilize these enhancements. Users who have not received a notification are encouraged to contact their nearest SprutCAM X Reseller for assistance or visit the SprutCAM Tech contact page for more information.
