Click to view contentI'm experienced in design, but this is the first part I'm attempting to take through CAM and machining, and I'm stumped. I'm trying to make the part below on a desktop 4 axis mill (Taig DSLS3000). There are a number of similar parts, all of which would be best machined by indexing the 4th axis (which turns around X) while changing the X and Z… (Show more)

Hey guys, I'm using SolidWorks Cam as a post processor and had alarm 430: Beginning and end mark missing come up last night while trying to load a file. I've seen this code before while hand writing code and forgetting the % sign but it appears to be in the code generated by SW Cam.    On a side note, this is the first time I have used SW Cam to… (Show more)

Hi all,    This is my first time posting on solidworks forums, and with that, I am encountering some issues with running solidworks CAM on the lathe (tormach slant 15L) in the lab.    I researched a little bit, and followed the instructions based on what I found, however, I would always end up with G-Code errors on the machine. I used the post… (Show more)

I'm plan to mill some small parts from bearing bronze on a HAAS mill, but all the materials listed in the stock menu are iron, steel, stainless steel or aluminum.  I know I could use one of the pre-loaded materials and just change the feeds and speeds, but this is my first time working with G-Code, so I don't know what to use as a starting value.

So to be upfront, I very new to SW CAM and cnc machining in general. I've been working with SW for a decade or so but only recently decided to give machining a go so please bear with me if this is a dumb question. I have a relatively simple part that I need to machine from two sides (top and bottom) on a 3 axis machine. Though I haven't actually… (Show more)

I had just programmed a part for my mill. Can I go back into my program and use TBM to help machine a unilateral tolerance to the mean and just update the tool path?.

Does anyone know of one or where to get one.  I am told this is a pretty standard machine.

Bonjour à tous. J'ai pu faire le programme g code pour effectuer une gravure. Mais ce programme travaille de la droite vers la gauche. Comment faire pour qu'il travaille plutôt de la gauche vers la droite? Merci pour vos réactions .CAM

Click to view contentWanted to try assembly mode in turning from a visual perspective. Turns out SolidWorks Cam Professional does not have this option. Can this be a possibility? Would love to see this added in the future.
