How do I gcode in solidworks cam? Not solidcam.......solidworks cam.
Whatr I mean is, I know how to Gcode. I just can't find the option in Solidworks Cam.
SOLIDWORKS CAM follows the Automatic Feature Recognition workflow. This is on the Comand Manager for SW CAM.
The tasks should be run in this order:
Extract Machinable Features.Generate Operation Plan.Generate Tool Path.Post Process. This will create the GCode file and prompt you to save it.
Hope that helps.
I have already done all the steps yesterday. How do I gcode the files now?
Do you have a post processor selected? In the Cam works tab edit the Machine. In there will be a tab post. You need to select a post from the list - hopefully one that matches your machine.
Sta Bla, as Mike has already stated the G-code you are after is posted once you run the "Post Process" function. If you have already done that I would suggest you try it again and watch for the directory where the code actually got sent.
It is possible that it has been done and you simply don't know where to find it.
