Click to view contentThe endmill I am using in the slot does not want to stay at depth after it has made its passes. It raises outside and above the part and then goes back down. I have stay at depth checked to make the cutter just cut down, but it sill comes back up and then goes back down. Does anyone know why it is doing this and/or how to fix it?

I am trying to mill out a rectangular slot with SW CAM. I would like to be able to save some movement/operation time by using a Rough Mill to finish the slot. I did not think that that was possible but wanted to see what others thought.  I have a rough mill followed by a contour mill to get the slot done, but when the system goes from rough to… (Show more)

Click to view contentI'm experienced in design, but this is the first part I'm attempting to take through CAM and machining, and I'm stumped. I'm trying to make the part below on a desktop 4 axis mill (Taig DSLS3000). There are a number of similar parts, all of which would be best machined by indexing the 4th axis (which turns around X) while changing the X and Z… (Show more)

Hey guys, I'm using SolidWorks Cam as a post processor and had alarm 430: Beginning and end mark missing come up last night while trying to load a file. I've seen this code before while hand writing code and forgetting the % sign but it appears to be in the code generated by SW Cam.    On a side note, this is the first time I have used SW Cam to… (Show more)
