hello please, i wish to start digging into CAMs, and i recently noticed that solidworks suports CAM, and, in some youtube vidoes, i saw tabs for different cam brands.
i wish to be able to replicate the entire machininig cabinet ( for collision check, including fixture and tools offset ), for lathes with live tools & programmble tailstock, and horizontal mills.
next in line, would be multitasking lathes up to y turret + 2nd spindle, gangs, and 5 axis mills.
i am ok with g-code, cad enviroment and conversationals, but i lack cam experience, and i have never before configure a postprocessor.
i have seen different people complaining about several radom cam functionalities, and/or spending months in order to achieve a desired configuration, or not being satisfied by a limited postproceesor.
please, i gently ask for guidance, like a solid tutorial sugestion, or advice, to shorten the implementation time.
i would preffer to go over a more complex, capable enviroment, rather than a simple one, but at this point, i have no idea from where to start. kindly
