Module to be used with 3/5-axis machine tools or robots.

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
  • 2D geometric macros for the simplified drawing of kitchen and bathroom countertops
  • Manual and automatic true-shape nesting
  • Dimensions
  • Printing functions supporting PDF, printer and plotters
3D CAD
  • Drawing and editing of 3D primitives, NURBS based solid models and surfaces, triangular meshes
  • Projection and wrapping of 2d geometries on surfaces
  • Specific CAD commands to edit and manipulate sculptured surfaces
  • 3D geometric macros for the simplified drawing of: frames, washbasins, 3D pockets, shower plates, ruled surfaces, helicoidal sections
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; cut drills, slotters, shaped cutters, polishing tools, custom shaped tools
  • disks and horizontal disks

Additional accessories that can be combined with the tools:

  • tool-holders
  • carters

Both disk and mill tools can be mounted on a gearbox.

2.5D Machinings

A complete set of 2.5D milling machining strategies.

  • Contouring: cutting, vertical walls, shaped walls
  • Automatic pre-drilling handling
  • Pocketing: vertical walls, shaped walls, high-speed, 2 sections concave/convex pocket
  • 3D engraving of artistic details and texts with automatic rest machining
  • Ruled surfaces
  • Leveling (Face Milling)
  • Hole/circle machining
  • Polishing: planar (kitchen tops), vertical edges
  • Drips
  • Disk cut with gearbox
  • Touch probe: generation of touch points arranged on a grid or along the toolpaths

3+2 3D (FIXED FRAMES) AND 4/5 INTERPOLATED AXES MachiningS

  • Vertical disk: roughing, finishing, border finishing, radial machining
  • Horizontal disk: roughing, finishing, border finishing

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, both with conventional tools and disk tools, 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.

Workbench

This module handles the placement of the parts on the machine workbench. Once the parts/projects have been prepared, they can be arranged graphically on the machine workbench.

Each piece can be linked with its sub-pieces (suction cups, stoppers, fixed stoppers, fixtures). During the simulation it is possible to verify all the executive processes of the applied machinings and check the potential collisions with the sub-pieces.

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.
