At SolidSolutions we run training courses for a large variety of manufacturing solutions such as SolidCAM, SWOOD and SigmaNEST alongside the newly introduced SOLIDWORKS CAM. To help make our training courses easier to understand and more relatable to real life working situations we have purchased a 5 axis milling machine to demonstrate the outputs from these programs in action. Not only is this machine versatile in its output, it is also quiet and portable, making it suitable for demonstrations.

SW CAM comes with a dozen or so generic post-processors but not Shopbot. However Shopbot will accept G-code so I'm wondering which of these pre-loaded post-processors would be best for producing code for Shopbot. If anyone has experience with this.

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.

Mazak Matrix post processor We reacently installed a 2012 Mazak 510C-II with the matrix control. I am looking for a post generator for it. solidworks cam goes through cam works and they provide a program called UPG to create your own post, but there are no settings on how to start creating for a mazak.

Is there a way to disable this thing. I am trying to do a drawing of a multibody part, and EVERY time I go to select a body, I get a stupid warning about Solidworks CAM data needs to be updated. EVERY single freakin' time, no matter if I select OK or CANCEL.

It will not prompt. It needs to be entered in the machine setup on the tab shown below. We do not prompt on posting for any post items. They are entered when you specify the machine, post processor, and toolcrib inside of SW CAM.

My company recently acquired aStepoko CNC Machinefrom Sparkfun. We are looking to utilize SolidWorks new CAM feature with the machine for some in-house prototyping. The Stepoko board runs on Grbl v1.1, so I need a post-processor that will output to a format like that. None of the standard machine profiles included with SolidWorks seem to work.

Model-Based Definition (MBD) is a journey. Defining product and manufacturing information (PMI) on 3D models rather than 2D drawings is just a start. After that, it’s vital to serve the downstream processes such as inspection, fabrication, and suppliers, in an organized, consumable and actionable fashion. Regardless of MBD or 2D drawings, the functional purpose is to communicate.

I'm new to CAM in general and Solidworks CAM in particular (though I've used Fusion 360 CAM a little). I'm trying to create this multi-surface feature and you can see by the picture what I'm hoping for.

I was going through menus to become more familiar with the software and clicked on Solidworks Cam to see what it was. I am now stuck in Cam and cannot find a way to get back to 3D CAD to go back to modeling. I have not and never will use CAM so i tried to disable the add-in but that just removed the options at the top of the screen, How do i get back to 3D CAD so i can continue modeling?

With the completion of the Labor Day holiday, we have officially entered fall of 2018. For me, this means lots of exciting things: college football, family holidays, SOLIDWORKS 2019 and IMTS 2018 in Chicago. You may be asking what is IMTS? IMTS stands for the International Manufacturing Technology Show.

While 3D printers have been around for over 30 years, the reality of using a printer for manufacturing purposes at a reasonable price has only recently been available. 3D printers ascended to prominence largely on the backs of desktop machines, while printers capable of producing parts that would survive the factory floor were exorbitantly expensive. This created a false but lasting perception in the industry: you could either get cheap 3D printers to make trinkets and toys or million-dollar

Does solidworks cam professional need solidworks to run or it can run individully? Adrian CzaplaAug 16, 2018 3:26 AM(in response to Muhammad Osama Siddiqui) SOLIDWORKS CAM is an add-in, so you need SOLIDWORKS to run it.

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.
