The SprutCAM Add-Ins Manager is designed to control the many available SprutCAM addins. Add-Ins can be DLL's, VBA/JS-scripts or COM-objects that support the extended SprutCAM capabilities. One example of this is to link with an external application (for example: link to SOLIDWORKS to use it for geometry import) or to add menus/toolbars to external applications (for example: a SprutCAM Toolbar for Rhinoceros).
For the correct operation of the Add-Ins/Toolbars, the CAD software must be installed together with SprutCAM on the host PC.

List of supported 3D models formats can be extended by adding any third party converters. It is enough to specify the path to the converter, supported extensions and command line parameters. SprutCAM will use third party converter to import models. See example.
