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)

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)

Click to view contentI am having an issue with trying to change the "z" axis on a mill part setup in CAM. I have the Coordinate System setup so that "z" axis is up and down. But on a particular cut, it has the tooling coming in from the  "x" axis based on the Fixture Coordinate System. I've tried to go through the Part Setup Parameters and reorient it so that it's… (Show more)

Hello, I have a Kitamura Vertical center with a 16 tools torret tool changer (bidrirectional). But the 3 predefined gribs in Solidcam are 20 places, I will change to 16. How can I do this? The next: How can I block a place in the tool changer? i.e. sometimes the springs they clamp the tools must be changed, in the meantime I cant use thios… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello   I started learning SW CAM recently and was a little disappointed when I found out there are no native CNC plasma cutter settings (at least I didn't found them). However, after digging I found this handy video Automation using Save Operation Plan - YouTube by Michael Buchli . It works perfectly except for this one annoyance.   When I try… (Show more)
