DESIGN

PEGASUS CAD-CAM includes 2D and 3D CAD modules for the drawing, editing and transformation of 2D and 3D geometric entities.

2D CAD
  • Drawing and editing of 2D geometries placed on 3D work planes
  • Construction geometries mode
  • Text outline generation along lines and curves, using Windows TrueType font mapping
  • Dimensions
  • Printing functions supporting PDF, printer and plotters
3D CAD
  • Drawing and editing of 3D primitives, NURBS based solid models and surfaces, triangular meshes
  • Features detection and extraction: pockets, slots, holes
  • Projection and wrapping of 2d geometries on surfaces
  • 3D geometric macros for details simplified drawing
EXTERNAL CAD IMPORTS

It’s possible to import the following formats: DXF, DWG, IGES, 3DS, STEP, STL, OBJ, Rhino3D.

TOOLS TABLES

The software is provided with a specific environment to manage the tools’ archives. The user, depending on his equipment, can archive his tools in one or more tool tables that can be arranged and customized depending on his needs.

Supported tools:

  • mill cutters: cylindrical, spherical or toroidal cutters; tapers and engraving cutters
  • holes machinings tools: drill, boring, reaming and taper tools
  • turning tools: generic, parting and threading tools

Handling of tool-holders and additional accessories. Tables handling: printing, exporting and importing.

  • Complete control of the tool axis orientation with the ability to handle the contact point and limit the inclination

LATHE MACHININGS

Module for the 2-axis lathe machinings.

  • Lathe machinings: roughing, pocketing, facing, finishing, groove, cut off, threading
  • Canned cycles: axial drilling, axial tapping

SIMULATION

PEGASUS CAD-CAM is bundled with an integrated graphic simulation environment for the immediate verification of the machining result on the material (material simulation), and a virtual simulation environment based on the real model of the machine (machine simulation).

MATERIAL SIMULATION

Verification of all kind of machinings, from 2.5D up to 5 axes, with collision checking on both the stock material and the finished model. Two possible simulation modes are available:

  • toolpath (showing only the tool trace)
  • material removal
VIRTUAL MACHINE SIMULATION

This is an optional module that provides the virtual representation of the entire machine, showing the movement of all axes, both linear and rotary. This module is useful to avoid problems on the machine during the CNC program execution; it checks the limits of the axes and detects potential collisions with the moving parts or the fixtures.

Report

Integrated module to handle reports and project printings, for the operator to use during the equipping of the machine. Reports content is customizable with:

  • the list of the applied operations
  • tools data
  • working schedule
  • material images e work setting operations

Post processor

This is an integrated module to convert the applied toolpaths into the language of the specific CNC. Usually there are one or more custom post-processors available for the machines present in a workshop.
