Is it possible to run the SolidWorks CAM NC Editor as a stand alone program at another computer? I am programming from my SolidWorks models here at my desk but the Onsrud Router is on the other side of the building. Currently we are using AlphaCAM to open the G-Code and then port it to the Onsrud. I would like the operator to be able to use the SolidWorks CAM NC Editor at his terminal.

I'm a user of PowerMill, and I'm trying to use SolidWorks CAM. SolidWorks CAM has different concep with PowerMill, so I'm little bit confused. I tried to make finishing tool-paths for the smooth curved surfaces, but I didn't know how to do.

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.

Stock Manager For a while I have been designing parts in SW and machining them manually. Our VMC was finally repaired last week, so I am pleased to find that CAM is now included in SW Standard 2018 (which we have).

Anyone have any experience using Solidworks CAM 2018 to post process to an older Haas VF0 and an older Haas Mini Mill controller? I see an option for a Haas VF3, but not the machines that we have. We just got these machines from a company acquisition and I have been out of the CNC game for some time, so I am trying to see what it would take to get these up and running quickly (is in if I need to purchase a standalone CAM package or something else).

I am trying to do a simple tool path to cut along the grooves in my part. I have tried feature based as well as using just a sketch. Did you try a curve feature?

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 have a Shopbot that works OK for what we do. It came with VcarvePro which sometimes makes me tear my hair out. SW CAM comes with a dozen or so generic post-processors but not Shopbot.

Bonjour tout le monde, j'ai Solidworks 2016 sur lequel j'ai greffé Solidcam 2017. je souhaite effectuer une simulation de fabrication pour ressortir le g-code mais je n'arrive pas à définir l'origine de la pièce brute. je ne sais pas si quelqu'un a déjà eu ce problème, mais j'ai besoin de votre aide. Qu'est ce qu'il faut faire sachant que j'ai déjà utiliser les controleur cnc mais lorsque je selectionne une surface, le petit v vert ne s'active pas..

Today i'm going to ask something that i wonder if it can be done on SW18 CAM. I'm modelling some sheets to be cutted in a CNC to fold it later. The thing is that several programs has the option of adding taps/tabs/bridges trough a contour.

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.
