CNC Module for Turning: A New CAM Application
The integrated CAM application for the KOMPAS-3D environment known as CNC Module for Turning is considered. This application permits automated development of control programs for numerically controlled lathes. The user may readily adapt the CAM application for specific production conditions and machine tools, thanks to features such as the following: representation of the cutting tools by means of parametric 3D models, the possibility of including fixed CNC cycles in the control programs, and the use of the Python language for programming of the postprocessors.
