Hello everyone. I'm having some issues working with CAM tool, specifically with chamfers. I need to mechanize a square part and make a chamfer on its perimeter, but all the operations has to be done with only one tool, a DRILL MILL Diam. 3mm x 45º.

Sal Lama and his dastardly headphones. The Magic Wheelchair build has officially had its first causality—the top of Sal Lama’s head! Was it from a machine going on the fritz? A sharp corner of foam whacking him at just the right angle after being cut off?

We mostly do Alum. & Plastic parts and use HSS tools not Carbide. Cam always picks carbide tools and I am change feeds and speeds. Can I set something to get Cam to default to HSS tools instead of Carbide?

You have to let me talk to the controller. And don't assume that it is just a matter of time before I choose the midpoint of a line. I am excited to think that SW 2018 includes some CAM functionality.

If doctors and plane manufacturers and world-class champions can use 3D printing to become best in class, imagine how you can use this technology for your applications. You have already heard about 3D printing with plastics. What you may not know is now, you can 3D print with metal! Picture this: In one room, surgeons remove a tumor infected bone from a patient.

When I select a profile of a boss an try to machine it, it simulates fine but the actual machine HAAS VF3 will not run it. I get Tool Radius Compensation errors every time. It seems like CAM Works wants me to have zero radius tools. It is programming the path as if it is the center of the tool.

I have created a SolidWorks CAM file and want to make a small edit. Is there a way to start the SolidWorks CAM Editor without starting SolidWorks? I have NotePad++ and a few other text editing programs but would like to use the SolidWorks CAM Editor.

Hi everybody. I'm having some issues with the CAM module (again). I make a program to use in a postprocessor MACH 3 (G54) but in the text file appears an error; several lines ends with dots, and when i put the program on mi CNC, every time that it comes to that point, it stops.

I saved out some flat panels with holes and cutouts as Parasolid Binary x_b files. When they open, Solidworks CAM is set to Turn instead of Mill. Hopefully this is easy, but I haven't been able to figure out how to switch to Mill. These look nothing like lathe parts.

I wasted an hour reading through the turning tutorial and trying to figure out why nothing would work. I could choose "Turn Single Turret" as the machine (even though, as I now realize, it was grayed out and the "Select" button was unavailable) but "Turn Operations" on the Command Manager never activated. I though maybe it was something wrong with my settings or installation.

I created a simple part in solidworks 2018. I assigned toolpaths, a coordinate system and could output g-code as a single part with no problems. I created an assembly to machine multiple parts but I can't get Solidworks Cam to recognize the correct Coordinate System.
