Trying to use SWCam for small things like drilling and small parts, but the post output does not include semicolons at the end of the lines, I have to add manually, drilling cycles don't look right, is there anyway to change the post for a Fanuc 18i, I have Solidworks Pro licence so the functionality of the cam is limited. I've included 2 output… (Show more)

Greetings,    I am pretty new to solidworks and SOLIDWORKS cam.  I have an L bracket that I need to machine, I plan to machine both faces of the L-Bracket.  I have created an assembly that contains my part, part stock and a block to align to as my jig.     I have two configurations, the first is the default and I can generate all my features.  I… (Show more)

I am looking at several design options that all require machining, but with different levels of complexity and amounts of machining that needs to be done. I was hoping that SolidWorks CAM would have a function that would tell me how long it would take to machine a part in the simulation of the toolpath, but I cannot find anything like that… (Show more)

I am looking for a post processor that will work with an Anilam 3000m Control on a 2 axis knee mill. Does anyone have any ideas?

The CAM of Solidworks creates very long linear code. I.e. for a pocket, this are for each Z-level the same code. Normaly should a program be created in this kind: Z-2 M98 P100 Z-4 M98 P100 M30 and so on... If you use also G41 you can change the parameters directly on the machine. This is important to adapt teh NC progam i.e. for perfect… (Show more)

i am trying to create a cam, i have the drawing but im not sure how to approach the sketch.    the drawing dimensions with statements like " spiral A from 7.5 to 70 degrees: decreasing from R19 to R17.3 linear with degrees, counter clockwise" can some one explain how i can sketch this? I am not sure what commands or features to use. can this be… (Show more)

The scenario: I have setup the Technology Database for my needs. (Tools, strategies, default settings etc.) Now in the technology database all is perfect for me. But if I open a part, and generate a operation plan, the default settings from before appears. If I open the technology database, there are my settings. But in the actual part I must… (Show more)

Hello. I created a simple part with a rectangulat inner pocket with corner radius of 5mm. I configured the machine (Kitamura) and the tool changer and tools. I have 2 tools, one 2mm drill and a 6mm endmill.   The roughing process works fine (dont use the G41). The countour finish process uses G41 with leadin/leadout. This fails.   I will… (Show more)
