Does Solidworks CAM have the capability to automatically adjust the feedrate in arcs? I am roughing a concave semicircular feature and i would like to reduce the feed rate. I know I can go edit the tool path but that is time consuming. I think some CAM systems can do this automatically.

Is there a way to disable this thing. I am trying to do a drawing of a multibody part, and EVERY time I go to select a body, I get a stupid warning about Solidworks CAM data needs to be updated. EVERY single freakin' time, no matter if I select OK or CANCEL.

Hi all.   I'm a newbie with SolidWorks 2018, although I'm progressing very well with my learning curve,but there is still one major problem. Lets say I have a basic cube 50x50x10mm and I need to cut it out from material.

I wasted an hour reading through the turning tutorial and trying to figure out why nothing would work. I could choose "Turn Single Turret" as the machine (even though, as I now realize, it was grayed out and the "Select" button was unavailable) but "Turn Operations" on the Command Manager never activated. I though maybe it was something wrong… (Show more)

With a couple of requirements;   First, the machining will be done using only one tool of 3mm of diameter. Second, the sheet thickness will… (Show more)

Hi,   In the What's New from BETA 2 appears a metion about two SOLIDWORKS CAM versions (Standard - free with subscription, and Professional).   Is there any document that explains the diferences between these two verions?   Thanks,   Juanjo

I created a tapped hole using the Hole Wizzard. After extracting machinable features, generating operation plan and toolpaths,  I get toolpaths for center drill, drill and countersink, but no toolpath for tapping the hole. How do I get this "feature" based program to recognize a Hole Wizard "feature"?

Does anyone have a postprocessor for kosy in solidworks cam 2018? Or do you know which mill post i should chose in upg to create an own 3 axis post easily?

I created a tapped hole using the Hole Wizard. After running feature recognition, generate operation plan and create tool paths, I get a spot drill and drill tool path but no Tapping tool path. Has anyone been able to do this successfully?
