SolidCNC CAD-CAM System

SolidCNC has a geometry kernel that had been developped by company it self and there is not an external dependency. SolidCNC can import IGES , DXF , VRML and STL files from other CAD-CAM systems and make its own geometry objects , render them by open GL. There are basic modelling functionality that lets users to make lines , arcs , curves , surfaces and primitive solid bodies from scratch. Users can use many interactive functions that SolidCNC apply on the geometry entities.

Modelling fuctions of SolidCNC

You can make lines , circles , arcs ,ellipses and cubic splines from scratch. You may trim the curves where they intersect , make ofset curves , project them on other planes or surfaces. There are some simple surface modelling functionality as extruding curves to make tabulated cylinders , or revolve curves and make surface of revolution , or make ruled surface between curve sets. Trimming surfaces or closing the holes on trimmed surfaces is possible. Sectioning the surfaces by planes is also possible. SolidCNC is capable of many geometric functions on curve and surface entities.

You can attach texture to surface entities on SolidCNC by selecting image files. It is possible to import VRML files to get texture map models from other software systems.

It is possible to change the positions of geometric entities which are imported or modelled on SolidCNC by transformation functions. Rotations , linear moving , mirroring , scaling can be applied.

Digitised models (STL files) can be opened

Triangle mesh models may also be transformed or curve models may be formed by sectioning triangle meshes.
