Esprit Files

Question asked by Ryan Fritts on Apr 29, 2012

Working to integrate our SolidWorks models with the current cam system we are using Esprit.  We had been using XT files to transfer the solid model data.  We would like to use the actual solid models instead of translating files.   We follow our manufacturing process to create our models.   We have a shaft that is friction welded and so is an assembly that we then apply revolved cuts to.   It appears Esprit when importing an assembly does not show the cuts only the rough stock that is cut.  We had tried many different ways of import with no luck. Is there a way to get Esprit to recognize the cuts in the assembly?  If not are there other cam packages that interface with SolidWorks and will recognize the cut paths in an assembly?  We do not want to save any auxillary files for machining.  One file to control for revision is key.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks
