I had created toolpaths in Solidworks CAM 2019 for a lathe part.  Toolpaths looked great with the turning tools starting far away from the part in X and Z like normal.   Fast forward to where I upgraded to Solidworks CAM 2020, and I load my lathe part with its toolpaths.  When/If I regenerate my toolpaths, now the turning tools start (and end) at… (Show more)

I have a lathe part that has a small thread relief feature which required me to create a custom 0.062" grooving tool.   There is also a much deeper groove on the backside of the part.  The toolpath generated is correctly using the 0.062" grooving tool to machine out the thread relief, but then incorrectly is using the same grooving tool to… (Show more)

I am building my Tool Cribs and have input as many of the tools that I currently have but required creating a number of user defined tools to get the right profile for the tool.    Now that I have about a dozen User Defined tools that I would like to label as their appropriate tool type, Drill, Flat End Mill, Bull Nose End Mill, etc.   But When… (Show more)

I would like to add some custom codes (M01) in my Operation Tree. Is that possible?   Using SW 2020 with Standard CAM.

Solidworks CAM Lathe:   I'm trying to use a boring bar to enlarge the diameter of a blind hole, however the operation insists on continuing in the X direction at the bottom of the hole toward the part center line (flat bottom hole initially drilled with a custom drill to create the flat bottom), and as the boring bar has a diameter larger than… (Show more)

Hello! I just started using Solidworks CAM and I couldn't figure out how to toolpath this aerospike. My problem lies in how to mill the top surface and bottom surfaces separately. I also had trouble with pathing the front side since my tool did not mill the corners. Was there a way to make the path extend to cover the corners? I will attach… (Show more)

I'm a just started trying to learn Solidworks CAM for my HAAS TP-2P mill and I'm having a little bit of trouble.  I have a fairly simple block designed with slots on the top surface. I set the coordinates, mill set up and pick the top of the part. When I Extract Machinable Features, Generate Operation Plan and Generate Tool Path, it wants to try… (Show more)

But not all arcs are showing as polygons. Does anyone know why this is, or could be. Full disclosure I am new to solidworks Cam 2020.

Does anyone know why Perimeter Boss only allows for Finish and not Rough-Finish? I tried adding it in TechDB but there's no Rough mill operation to add. Only Contour mill. I could do two contour mill passes (one for roughing) but if I sort the operation the roughing operation will not be sorted with the rest of the roughing passes. I'm new to… (Show more)

I just started playing around the CAM Standard and find it pretty easy to use for the simple tasks I need, but the milling machine I plan to use this with requires manual tool changes. I can't change the tools over the part. I need the table to move to another location so I have the room to change to the next cutter. Am I missing something or is… (Show more)
