I am completely new to Camworks (2019 SP3.0) and have just started the Mill Tutorial.  The tutorial describes that on  the Solidworks CAM machining tree there should be the Configurations, Stock Manager, Machine, and Recycle Bin. My tree (see attached) doesn't show the Configurations, but does show Coordinate System which is not described in the… (Show more)

We have a division of our company that is using this software or there paths for laser and plasma. They are telling us that they cannot pull flat patterns from multibodied parts like Weldments. The end results is that they want us to create individual files for every body of a multibody part....which of course defeats at least one of the reasons… (Show more)

I work on a lot of teeny parts (e.g. less than an inch).  Sometimes I want to face the stock to a final thickness.  When I do, it always chooses a face mill.  I think I want to face with a small end mill, say 1/2-inch dia.  Is there a rule where I can specify to select an end mill for a facing operation?    To get around this, I have been making… (Show more)

Before selecting the ramp in the Depth Parameters menu the operation works exactly as expected. The tool goes to the specified depths progressively until punching past the stock the specified amount. Great. However, a plunge is not… (Show more)

Click to view contentThe endmill I am using in the slot does not want to stay at depth after it has made its passes. It raises outside and above the part and then goes back down. I have stay at depth checked to make the cutter just cut down, but it sill comes back up and then goes back down. Does anyone know why it is doing this and/or how to fix it?

I am trying to mill out a rectangular slot with SW CAM. I would like to be able to save some movement/operation time by using a Rough Mill to finish the slot. I did not think that that was possible but wanted to see what others thought.  I have a rough mill followed by a contour mill to get the slot done, but when the system goes from rough to… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi,   I've been playing around with SW CAM (the standard add-in for SW Prof). I'm trying to make a hole in a pipe where it cuts around 5 mm into the material in first cut and then finish the rest of the material in the second and final cut (around 2 mm). It only have to cut the contour of the hole. I got it working on a flat plate, but this seems… (Show more)
