I have a Shopbot that works OK for what we do. It came with VcarvePro which sometimes makes me tear my hair out. SW CAM comes with a dozen or so generic post-processors but not Shopbot. However Shopbot will accept G-code so I'm wondering which of these pre-loaded post-processors would be best for producing code for Shopbot. If anyone has… (Show more)

I created a simple part in solidworks 2018. I assigned toolpaths, a coordinate system and could output g-code as a single part with no problems.

Can someone review the attached files and tell me what I am doing wrong?  … (Show more)

The Stepoko board runs on Grbl v1.1, so I need a post-processor that will output to a format like that. None of the standard machine profiles included with SolidWorks seem to work.… (Show more)

Hi everyone, I'm new to CAM in general and Solidworks CAM in particular (though I've used Fusion 360 CAM a little). I'm trying to create this multi-surface feature and you can see by the picture what I'm hoping for. The problem is that the tool path is ignoring the material in the center of the feature. I'm getting this as a result It looks… (Show more)

I was going through menus to become more familiar with the software and clicked on Solidworks Cam to see what it was. I am now stuck in Cam and cannot find a way to get back to 3D CAD to go back to modeling.   I have not and never will use CAM so i tried to disable the add-in but that just removed the options at the top of the screen, How do i… (Show more)
