I have a Torchmate plasma table and would like to try SW cam with. Does anyone have a post that would work? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.9.0, revision: 20171215204634.b96715f.release_2016.3.9

In the What's New from BETA 2 appears a metion about two SOLIDWORKS CAM versions (Standard - free with subscription, and Professional). Is there any document that explains the diferences between these two verions?

I created a tapped hole using the Hole Wizzard. After extracting machinable features, generating operation plan and toolpaths, I get toolpaths for center drill, drill and countersink, but no toolpath for tapping the hole. How do I get this "feature" based program to recognize a Hole Wizard "feature"?

I noticed there is no "new" button for machines in the tech db. I know you can copy and overwrite the ones that are there but it would be great to have a new option similar to the toolcrib options. Santiago LAVERDEEmployeeAug 1, 2017 3:50 PM(in response to Lindsay Widmeyer) There is no new button. if you want a new machine just hit Copy, this will create e new machine and grab the same settings, this way you don't have to fill out everything.

I hope everyone else did not have the same problem as I had trying to install the newest CAM Beta. I had nothing but trouble for the last 2 1/2 hours trying to get it to show up in my SW 2017. I thought it had to be one of those Windows things and I am really use to Windows 7. I guess I will get use to the newest SolidWorks, Windows 10 and this SolidWorks CAM all at the same time.

User interface changes I fully understand the need/desire to change the graphics in operations, but please get someone with a bit of design knowledge to do this.

I've never had a problem with the default color scheme used in CAMWorks. Namely the magenta fonts, light teal stock preview, green feature preview/outline, red rapid moves, blue feed moves, etc. The one item I would always do is bump the line weight up to 3 from the default.

Turning Tools I was testing out turning toolpaths on a couple part files and noticed there are not many tools available in the turning tool library. Wondering if there are plans to add to these tool lists or even link up with common tool manufacturers in the industry to carry their specific tools?

It would make it a little quicker if I could select multiple features, right click and be able to change whatever parameters are common to the selected features. Tags:none(add)change strategies

Post Processor Customization I been using Solidworks for a long time but this is the first time for me to use any sort of CAM tool. I believe I will need a customized post processor for the specific CNC machine and its controller.

So like most of the users here have CAM software in place. Most have payed for these CAM programs. And using integrated CAM is very intresting, there is always that price issue.

I really like the tolerance based machining a lot, and think that CAMWorks did a great job on this one. But I think it is crazy that end-users of SOLIDWORKS need to have MBD to Export to that format, and it is like a gigantic bug that we do not support opening step242 files in SOLIDWORKS at all. (we do open them, but no PMI will be imported)

Planes, Planes, Planes One thing that is really strange to me is the lack of support of SOLIDWORKS planes.

Are there any thoughts about how to handle the CAM Data folder in a PDM system? It would be really good to have the data reside in the PDM vault for easy administration as well as read / write permissions of data.

Coordinate point selector Really like what you did to coordinate selection, but why only do it 70%?

This part will be run on a 3 axis vertical mill. It will require multiple operations. Op. 1 will be to clamp the block in a vise, face the top and rough the profile down to the .5" boss.

You have shown us the video for creating tool paths starting with a tool. Since this is a Solidworks Concept are there more options for creating tool paths. When we left Autocad and went to Solidworks it was at first hard for people to grasp sketch,dimension and it changes with you. Everything did not have to be defined up front like Autocad.

When I watch your videos I see your tool tree view clearly. All my tools are orange and I can't see what they are unless I mouse over and highlight them. What do orange tools mean and how do I make them a different color?

The attached video shows a couple different ways to approach machining the boss. This video is for example only and uses configurations inside of SW CAM to showcase the different strategies. An updated version of the part is also attached.Selecting Surfaces using the 2.5 axis and Multi-Surface Feature Tools

I had trouble creating a new tool. The software limited me to a specific flute length / length of cut (L2). The shoulder length and flute length are tied together when you add more flute you need to add more to the shoulder as well.
