Adaptive roughing (HSC)

SprutCAM's module for efficient roughing.

Adaptive roughing strategy ensures that the high speed cutting conditions remain almost constant by which offers great improvements compared to conventional constant offset roughing strategies. The strategy avoids full-width cuts by constantly measuring the engagement volume of the tool with material and gradually removing material off the remaining stock. It guarantees stable load on the tool, which allows an increased material removal rate at higher feed rates and reduces the overall machining time.



  • Reduction in  machining cycle time
  • Extended tool  life


  • Supports 2-axis and 3-axis models
  • No full width cuts
  • Consistent engagement with material
  • Trochoidal like passes to progressively cut corners
  • Supports intermediate slices & rest roughing
  • Multi-core CPU support for  faster calculation times
