Trying to mill a chamfer. I made a 45degree Boss feature and now milling with the contour operation. Milling path is now on the wrong side of the featrure (inside the Material) how can I flip the side to mill? Thanks!
My company recently acquired a Stepoko CNC Machine from Sparkfun. We are looking to utilize SolidWorks new CAM feature with the machine for some in-house prototyping. The Stepoko board runs on Grbl v1.1, so I need a post-processor that will output to a format like that. None of the standard machine profiles included with SolidWorks seem to work.…(Show moreShow less)
G70 and G72 are traditionally turning cycles. Are you setting this for a lathe or mill? The radius could be a couple things as some controllers need arcs specified in I and J vs. R (radius). HawkRidge also has some posts for generic and specific machines that use different outputs. https://hawkridgesys.com/products/cam/post-processors#free …
Hi everyone, I'm new to CAM in general and Solidworks CAM in particular (though I've used Fusion 360 CAM a little). I'm trying to create this multi-surface feature and you can see by the picture what I'm hoping for. The problem is that the tool path is ignoring the material in the center of the feature. I'm getting this as a result It looks…(Show moreShow less)
Hello John, You need to add some "Shallow" stepover passes in there. You can do this by going over to the "Z Level" tab and doing a Constant stepover by enabling the Combination cycle button. You will also need to modify your slope angles as well; this defines the "Steep" and "Shallow" areas. See image below for an example. This is very good…
I was going through menus to become more familiar with the software and clicked on Solidworks Cam to see what it was. I am now stuck in Cam and cannot find a way to get back to 3D CAD to go back to modeling. I have not and never will use CAM so i tried to disable the add-in but that just removed the options at the top of the screen, How do i…(Show moreShow less)

Hello, I am using Solidworks Prof. 2019 and Solidworks CAM Professional. In Autodesk Fusion 360 we have various types of 3D processing including parallel, ramp, pencil and much more. Is 3D machining (parallel by ball nose) possible also in Solidworks CAM Professional ?
SOLIDWORKS 2018 SP3.0 While performing “ROUGHMILL4” I am expecting the roughing tool to stop at the RED arrow, but in actuality it is machining out to the BLACK arrow which is really not correct as it is machining through the part. This does not allow for the countersink tool to machine the chamfer. Any suggestions? This image shows…(Show moreShow less)
