Virtual Assistant Helps Engineers with CNC Machining Tasks

SprutCAM Tech offers SprutCAM X, an easy to learn CAD/CAM software for next generation makers. The update of SprutCAM X integrates an AI virtual assistant that helps users with various aspects of CAM workflow. The AI assistant is based on ChatGPT technologies.

The AI assistant is powered by the OpenAI API, which uses deep learning models to understand and generate natural language. Engineers can communicate with the AI assistant using text commands in multiple languages, and the AI assistant responds accordingly.

The AI wizard, called Éncy, can perform the following tasks:

  • Explain the G-code generated as a result of post-processing. Users can ask the AI assistant to clarify any line of code or command, and it will give a detailed explanation of what it does and why it is necessary.
  • Generate a G-code using a text description of the operations. Simply type what you want to do, such as "drill a 10 mm diameter hole at point (100, 25)" and the AI wizard will generate the corresponding G-code.
  • Write code in Python to create .dxf or .stl files. Use the AI assistant to create 2D or 3D models of parts using Python code. The AI assistant guides users through the process and shows the results in real time.
  • Provide reference information for the industrial robot or CNC machine when creating kinematic schemes in MachineMaker, a zero code application for building digital twins from SprutCAM Tech. Ask the AI assistant for any information about the robot or CNC machine being used, such as its dimensions, specifications, capabilities, limitations, etc.
  • Answer any question from a SprutCAM X user, even not related to the operation of the software. Chat with the AI assistant about anything, such as CNC tips and tricks, industry news, best practices, etc. The AI assistant will try to answer the questions as best it can, or direct users to relevant resources if it does not know the answer.

To create the above requests, CNC engineers can use various macros that are automatically adapted to the context of the task being performed.

Andrei Kharatsidi, co-founder of SprutCAM Tech, said, "We are committed to creating software that enables our customers to seamlessly transition from CAD to finished parts with the fastest turnaround time in the industry. SprutCAM X with ChatGPT technologies will save you time, improve your productivity and enhance your creativity."
