another major release of PyCAM was published today.
PyCAM is a toolpath generator for 3-axis CNC machining.
This major release features parallel processing (automatically using all CPU
cores of your computer) and even distributed processing (connecting multiple
hosts to a shared pool of worker processes). This speeds up processing of
complex models significantly.
Additionally a standalone executable for Windows is available (no dependencies
Climb and conventional milling styles are configurable.
The new toolpath strategy "Contour->Follow" can calculate exact contours of
a model (before: only an approximation).
Automatically distributed support bridges keep your 3D model attached to the
The path precision (G61/G64) for the GCode interpreter is configurable.
Various interface improvements and minor bugfixes are included.
You can download the appropriate package for your system from sourceforge:
