I am trying to do a simple tool path to cut along the grooves in my part. I have tried feature based as well as using just a sketch.   See attached image   Thank you.

I wasted an hour reading through the turning tutorial and trying to figure out why nothing would work. I could choose "Turn Single Turret" as the machine (even though, as I now realize, it was grayed out and the "Select" button was unavailable) but "Turn Operations" on the Command Manager never activated. I though maybe it was something wrong… (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)

When I select a profile of a boss an try to machine it, it simulates fine but the actual machine HAAS VF3 will not run it.   I get Tool Radius Compensation errors every time.  It seems like CAM Works wants me to have zero radius tools.  It is programming the path as if it is the center of the tool.   It is using g41 and g42 but the path is all… (Show more)

Hi. I need to build/customize a post processor for my company's Fagor-controlled CNC mill and lathe. I'm currently trying to get the Universal Post Generator (UPG; https://camworks.com/universal-post-generator/ ) to run, but I'm encountering severe problems.:   UPG v0307 is not installable on my Win10 64bit machine. I've managed to install it on… (Show more)

Pouvez vous me donner les étapes à suivre pour arriver jusqu'à l'obtention du code G de ma pièce. je vous remercie. Je joins une image relative de… (Show more)

Why different results by indicating solidworks simulation(3.8 N/mm) for getting the spring stiffness from  The results that I got from a certified lab (4.7 N/mm)?

I have a Shopbot that works OK for what we do. It came with VcarvePro which sometimes makes me tear my hair out. SW CAM comes with a dozen or so generic post-processors but not Shopbot. However Shopbot will accept G-code so I'm wondering which of these pre-loaded post-processors would be best for producing code for Shopbot. If anyone has… (Show more)

Bonjour tout le monde, j'ai Solidworks 2016 sur lequel j'ai greffé Solidcam 2017. je souhaite effectuer une simulation de fabrication pour ressortir le g-code mais je n'arrive pas à définir l'origine de la pièce brute. je ne sais pas si quelqu'un a déjà eu ce problème, mais j'ai besoin de votre aide. Qu'est ce qu'il faut faire sachant que j'ai… (Show more)

Hello Everyone.   Today i'm going to ask something that i wonder if it can be done on SW18 CAM.   I'm modelling some sheets to be cutted in a CNC to fold it later. The thing is that several programs has the option of adding taps/tabs/bridges trough a contour. For those who are not following me, by tap/tab/bridge i mean a little part along the… (Show more)
