Im using Solidworks 2018   I am unable to open Solidworks CAM NC Editor on it own. Meaning if I want to edit an NC file at a latter time, I have to launch Solidworks and from Solidworks CAM Operations tree post (or repost)  a toolpath in order to launch NC Editor. Then once the editor has launched open the file I actually want to edit.  When I… (Show more)

This is a very typical operation for a router on sheet goods. I want to ramp to depth, cut around part with a .010 allowance, then lead in without retracting, and do the finish pass contour. Every time I try to do contour operations that are dead simple in HSMWorks I stumble and fall flat on my face.    Ramping to depth and doing a part contour… (Show more)

Hello, for 2 weeks i'm trying to make machining file for my detail but i cant due to lack of experience. and i dont know there to find it, because the simplest parts that are created in youtube cant help me. The last hope for student, that solidworks community will help.

When I have monitors connected to my laptop, the primary way I work, I cannot access the machine setup for Solidworks CAM. Any way I try(Clicking define machine in the solidworks cam tab, right clicking and selecting edit definition, double clicking, etc.) it will not open. The second feature tree opens and all the CAM functions grey out but the… (Show more)

Hello: I am trying to set up a tool path for laser cutting operation. I have added the tool Flat endmill to the TechDB and used AFR to detect Irregular pocket. Now when I generate the operation plan and toolpath, I see there are multiple passes of the tool on the rectangular pocket. I want the tool to go around only one pass. How do I do it? Any… (Show more)

we use to have camworks & now use solidworks cam so i'm familiar with the camworks UPG software for modifying a post processor. my problem is that when I compile the source file, UPG is not creating a ctl or lng file. it's telling me that the source compiled successfully but it's not creating anything. I've tried changing where the files are to be… (Show more)

Trying to use SWCam for small things like drilling and small parts, but the post output does not include semicolons at the end of the lines, I have to add manually, drilling cycles don't look right, is there anyway to change the post for a Fanuc 18i, I have Solidworks Pro licence so the functionality of the cam is limited. I've included 2 output… (Show more)

Greetings,    I am pretty new to solidworks and SOLIDWORKS cam.  I have an L bracket that I need to machine, I plan to machine both faces of the L-Bracket.  I have created an assembly that contains my part, part stock and a block to align to as my jig.     I have two configurations, the first is the default and I can generate all my features.  I… (Show more)

I am looking at several design options that all require machining, but with different levels of complexity and amounts of machining that needs to be done. I was hoping that SolidWorks CAM would have a function that would tell me how long it would take to machine a part in the simulation of the toolpath, but I cannot find anything like that… (Show more)

I am looking for a post processor that will work with an Anilam 3000m Control on a 2 axis knee mill. Does anyone have any ideas?
