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 moreShow less)
I was just looking into this, and don't understand the new matrix here: SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD | SOLIDWORKS Here it says: CAM Programming (SOLIDWORKS CAM) SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard powered by CAMWorks® is an integrated 2.5-axis milling and 2-axis lathe programming solution. I also can't select the "Turn Single Turret", and the "Select" button is…
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 moreShow less)
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 moreShow less)
Hi Nate, Yes, you are correct. I load zero in my tool table and then slightly modify this value +- to get myself to the mean dimension. Would you consider working with me via Email & GoTo Meeting to get this solved? My email address is email@example.com
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 moreShow less)
Bonjour tout le monde, je découvre petit à petit solidworks cam 2018, et je suis à la phase de création de la forme de l'empreinte. en mentionnant que cette empreinte contient beaucoup de formes. 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 moreShow less)
Double check that the model geometry and properties of the SW material applied matches that of the real world spring. If the elastic modulus of the SW material is inaccurate then the results will be too.
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 moreShow less)
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 moreShow less)
Bonjour tout le monde, je suis passé à Solidworks 2018, et j'ai été agréablement surpris de voir le module CAM. ça résout mon problème. Merci à tous les ingénieurs et programmeurs de la famille Dassault.
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 moreShow less)
You are correct we use the avoid functionality for Tabs or breaks. In my previous life with Lasers, we used sketches as "avoid" areas to create tabs if we needed more than one tab. For one tab you can put a negative overlap on the lead in and lead out to stop short and automatically create a tab. If you have specific tabs you need, you can add…
