Ultimate 5-axis programming workflow
Rest material handling
SprutCAM always keeps the workpiece updated live within the operations sequence to optimize the toolpath and avoid air-cutting.
Every subsequent operation detects the workpiece in the state it was left by previous operation.
Thus the machine time is kept optimized.
On the screenshot,the green color is the part itself and orange is the current state of the workpiece.

Machine kinematics consideration
SprutCAM takes into account the machine kinematics with all its limitations when the toolpath is calculated.
The simulation automatically commences in the background immediately after the toolpath is calculated. The user can avoid any collisions that may occur without having to switch to Simulation mode.
Thus the CNC programming workflow is very streamlined and takes much less time; especially for multi-axis programming.
Equipment safety: collision control during tool path calculation
SprutCAM takes into account machine the axes limits for initial tool path calculation. There is no need for post processing and separate simulation for collision and axis limits control.
