With the release of SmartCAM V13.5, SmartCAMcnc has added functionality that provides all SmartCAM customers with new organizational tools for their job and process data. Additionally, the version improved Z-level core/cavity roughing, spiral hole-making functionality and more.

The regenerative toolpath elements enhancement allows the process information used to create a specific tool path to be captured in a toolpath container. This data can be recalled for process modification and optimization. The user can see the original manufacturing parameters used to create the toolpath, and then modify those parameters to meet new requirements.

The job library feature gives users the ability to capture and collect tooling, operation parameters and speeds and feeds from previous (or new) SmartCAM job files. This data can then be retrieved from the library for future jobs.

A spiral hole-making process has been added, which computes a continuous, smooth spiral toolpath for straight or tapered through or blind holes. Flat, bull and ball end mills are supported, and the tool path includes compensation for the tool corner radius, the specified finish allowance and start and end through-hole clearance.
