Bonjour tout le monde, je découvre petit à petit solidworks cam 2018, et je suis à la phase de création de la forme de l'empreinte. en mentionnant que cette empreinte contient beaucoup de formes. Pouvez vous me donner les étapes à suivre pour arriver jusqu'à l'obtention du code G de ma pièce. je vous remercie. Je joins une image relative de… (Show more)

Bonjour tout le monde, j'ai Solidworks 2016 sur lequel j'ai greffé Solidcam 2017. je souhaite effectuer une simulation de fabrication pour ressortir le g-code mais je n'arrive pas à définir l'origine de la pièce brute. je ne sais pas si quelqu'un a déjà eu ce problème, mais j'ai besoin de votre aide. Qu'est ce qu'il faut faire sachant que j'ai… (Show more)

Hello Everyone.   Today i'm going to ask something that i wonder if it can be done on SW18 CAM.   I'm modelling some sheets to be cutted in a CNC to fold it later. The thing is that several programs has the option of adding taps/tabs/bridges trough a contour. For those who are not following me, by tap/tab/bridge i mean a little part along the… (Show more)

Hello everyone! I updated my SolidWorks to 2018 recently, and i'm very enthusiastic with the CAM module! I was experimenting a little bit, and today i wanted to produce some washers from a sheet of material. 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)

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)

You have to let me talk to the controller.  And don't assume that it is just a matter of time before I choose the midpoint of a line.   I am excited to think that SW 2018 includes some CAM functionality.  What I am hoping is, that it will be a good geometry processor, but also allow the part programmer to communicate to the machine/control… (Show more)

We mostly do Alum. & Plastic parts and use HSS tools not Carbide.  Cam always picks carbide tools and I am change feeds and speeds.  Can I set something to get Cam to default to HSS tools instead of Carbide?

Hello everyone. I'm having some issues working with CAM tool, specifically with chamfers. I need to mechanize a square part and make a chamfer on its perimeter, but all the operations has to be done with only one tool, a DRILL MILL Diam. 3mm x 45º. The thing is that the program don't allows me to make a chamfer with a drill tool, despite all the… (Show more)
