SharpCam CAD/CAM
Upgrade System


Re-defining simplicity.

SharpCam CAD/CAM Upgrade System is an easy to use, intuitive and affordable 2.5D CAM system for the programming of CNC machine tools.


User Interface
SharpCam CAD/CAM uses Microsoft DirectX technology for high performance, hardware accelerated graphics and flicker free operation. The use of DirectX enables dynamic view changes, like panning, zooming and rotation, all with the middle mouse button. Hundreds of thousands of objects can be displayed with no noticeable drop in performance. This, combined with some of the fastest toolpath creation routines available, allows for instant updating and viewing of the results of an action.
Solid Verification
Advanced Polygon Model based integrated toolpath verification, included as standard, boasts features typically only found on high end systems.
Advanced Pocketing
Our pocketing is amongst the most advanced and fastest of any CAD CAM system, and was developed following the criteria of minimum number of plunges to depth, pocketing speed, minimum toolpath length.
Whenever a point value is required for a command, typically when drawing, snapping is used to automatically acquire these points from existing objects.
Always There NC Code
NC code is created instantly as you work, and is automatically created whenever a change is made to a toolpath.
Fully Associative
SharpCam CAD/CAM is fully associative. Every action taken will always regenerate the toolpaths immediately and automatically when needed. Moreover, orphaned toolpaths are never allowed.
Machine Developer
The Machine Developer is used to create Machine Definitions (post processors). At the heart of this feature rich development environment is Microsoft Visual Basic .NET programming language with unbelievable performance, power and flexibility.
Machine Definition Configuration
This technology allows Machine Definitions (post processors) to be simply configured specifically for a machine control. This is basically an interface that displays properties specific to a machine control. By changing a property, the Machine Definition is actually being edited without the need to learn how to use the Machine Developer. The power of this unique technology lies in the fact that SharpCam CAD/CAM is able to make a single Machine Definition suitable for a wide range of machines/controls. For example, SharpCam CAD/CAM only supplies one Fanuc Machine Definition that is configurable to suit any machine in a matter of seconds. The technology that displays the configurable properties is actually contained in the Machine Definition, so it is very transparent and is documented in the Machine Developer Help file. Machine Definitions are maintained and versioned by SharpCam.
Built in RS232 and NC Code Editor
Built in RS232 communication allows instant transfer to machine control. This combined with Always there Nc Code makes for important gains in productivity. Also included free with SharpCam CAD/CAM is an NC code editor – SharpEdit, that also has RS232 communication.
