SolidCAM has implemented STL cutting capability into SolidCAM2009. The module enables the user to directly machine STL files, which can be used in 3D scanning and rapid prototyping applications to describe 3D surface geometry. The module generates the stock box and the CAM part directly from the STL file.

SolidCAM has implemented STL cutting capability into SolidCAM2009. The module enables the user to directly machine STL files, which can be used in 3D scanning and rapid prototyping applications to describe 3D surface geometry.

The module generates the stock box and the CAM part directly from the STL file. For a family of STL parts, tool paths can be automatically updated by changing the model reference. Also, a “process template” facilitates applying technology used for machining of a specific STL file to a different STL part.
