We mostly do Alum. & Plastic parts and use HSS tools not Carbide.  Cam always picks carbide tools and I am change feeds and speeds.  Can I set something to get Cam to default to HSS tools instead of Carbide?

You have to let me talk to the controller.  And don't assume that it is just a matter of time before I choose the midpoint of a line.   I am excited to think that SW 2018 includes some CAM functionality.  What I am hoping is, that it will be a good geometry processor, but also allow the part programmer to communicate to the machine/control… (Show more)

I have created a SolidWorks CAM file and want to make a small edit.   Is there a way to start the SolidWorks CAM Editor without starting SolidWorks?    I have NotePad++ and a few other text editing programs but would like to use the SolidWorks CAM Editor.   This is a great addition to SolidWorks by the way.

We just upgraded from SW2016 to SW2017 and HSM2017 to 2018. It did not go smoothly. I am certain that if you added up the amount of time my SW VAR, HSM support, and Autodesk spent thru goto meetings on our (2) CAM systems it would easily be 6 hours. We now have everything loaded but the systems are running so slow now that I have regrets about… (Show more)
