Good afternoon all, I have been teaching myself Solidworks CAM for the last few weeks and I have reached a point of being able to cut metal ok via the mach3 post processor but I have a few issues I cannot find a solution for so hopefully people on here with more experience will be able to help. I have set up the technology database for my…(Show moreShow less)

First off I'm using a CNC Router so my part has tabs, we havent installed SW2020 yet, high school robotics mentor for team 6722. Would like to learn how to cut out parts with our CNC Router and have made great strides but cannot figure out how to get the part out of the stock. I have created the G-code and have cut out the pocket and the 6 holes…(Show moreShow less)
In SW CAM how can you output a work and sub coordinate offset? In the part parameters dialog box - offset tab, I have tried "G154" for my offset and "1" in my subcoordinate. When I post, all it says for my offset is, " G154 ". Not " G154 P1" In SW Cam it shows my work coordinate as a " G154.1 " on the part I am working on. I take it…(Show moreShow less)
Hello Craig, I just spoke with Patrick on the phone as he is our customer and is working with a custom 5ax post that I did for him; I will make these mods for him so we should be fine for now. We do appreciate your response in this matter. Thank you!
I am completely new to Camworks (2019 SP3.0) and have just started the Mill Tutorial. The tutorial describes that on the Solidworks CAM machining tree there should be the Configurations, Stock Manager, Machine, and Recycle Bin. My tree (see attached) doesn't show the Configurations, but does show Coordinate System which is not described in the…(Show moreShow less)
Craig, Our software is controlled by a different division, I'll have to verify with them which level is loaded. I'll go along with what you say, makes sense. I appreciate the quick responses guys! Vance
Hey, everyone John and I just added another episode to our mfg podcast. This episode talks about ERP/MES, real-time machine monitoring, and the Bill of Materials vs. Bill of Manufacture. Driving business decisions by using the correct data analytics - George Korn, DELMIAWORKS by The 3DExperience | Free Lis… Thanks in advance for the…(Show moreShow less)
We have a division of our company that is using this software or there paths for laser and plasma. They are telling us that they cannot pull flat patterns from multibodied parts like Weldments. The end results is that they want us to create individual files for every body of a multibody part....which of course defeats at least one of the reasons…(Show moreShow less)
I work on a lot of teeny parts (e.g. less than an inch). Sometimes I want to face the stock to a final thickness. When I do, it always chooses a face mill. I think I want to face with a small end mill, say 1/2-inch dia. Is there a rule where I can specify to select an end mill for a facing operation? To get around this, I have been making…(Show moreShow less)
William, it could come back if say the box width changes or something like that. These can be edited when saving back to the techdb. Just test the feature and save like that and before you know it your techdb will be changed.
I am attempting to use a "Perimeter-Boss" to contour cut out a piece of wood with ramps to 2 different depths. Before selecting the ramp in the Depth Parameters menu the operation works exactly as expected. The tool goes to the specified depths progressively until punching past the stock the specified amount. Great. However, a plunge is not…(Show moreShow less)
