Is it possible to run the SolidWorks CAM NC Editor as a stand alone program at another computer?  I am programming from my SolidWorks models here at my desk but the Onsrud Router is on the other side of the building.  Currently we are using AlphaCAM to open the G-Code and then port it to the Onsrud. I would like the operator to be able to use 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'm a user of PowerMill, and I'm trying to use SolidWorks CAM. SolidWorks CAM has different concep with PowerMill, so I'm little bit confused. I tried to make finishing tool-paths for the smooth curved surfaces, but I didn't know how to do.  I applied 'Fine' strategy for 'Mult-surface Feature', but I got the message that "No operations have been… (Show more)

The file "yasnac.lng' cannot be installed because the file cannot be found in cabinet file 'Portug~1.cab'   How do I get around this error.   I cannot use… (Show more)

When trying to create toolpaths in SolidworksCam using Automatic Feature Recognition there are instances where collisions happen. If a perimeter boss or contour is being used and the side wall of the part is longer than the flute length or even the tool protrusion from the holder, a collision will occur. It is possible to set a tool protrusion… (Show more)

Anyone have any experience using Solidworks CAM 2018 to post process to an older Haas VF0 and an older Haas Mini Mill controller? I see an option for a Haas VF3, but not the machines that we have. We just got these machines from a company acquisition and I have been out of the CNC game for some time, so I am trying to see what it would take to get… (Show more)
