Learn how to use and define custom strategies with CAMWorks technology database.
A beautiful sunset from Bucharest, Romania.
When you use CAMWorks, automatic feature recognition can save you a lot of time. However one features must be inserted manually, like for example chamfer. It is very easy to insert a new contour mill operation and use the chamfer machining options. More of that, after you insert one chamfer strategy, you can save it in the technology database and use it later on.
It is very important to understand that chamfer machining is a group of options under contour mill operation.
Another set of very important parameters are: length and clearance of the chamfer.
In CAMWorks for chamfering, you can use countersink tool and tapered flat end mill. If the chamfer is exterior or interior, please take in consideration the feature edge option. This parameter defines whether the geometry in the feature is to the apex of the chamfer or to the outer edge of the chamfer…

Sometimes working in 5 axis can be difficult, but in #CAMWorks everything is easier and I will show in the next video some of many functions in 5 axis strategies. In general, #CAMWorks #multiaxis machining allows a wide variety of shops and manufacturing facilities to take advantage of 5 axis machines that provide greater productivity, equipment flexibility and quality. #CAMWorks 5 axis simultaneous machining allows you to create toolpaths across complex shapes that could not be machined on 3 axis machines. This includes high-performance automotive port finishing, impellers, turbine blades, cutting tools, 5-axis trimming, and undercut machining in mold and die making. The part from video was a reques from a friend of my profile, so if you have any questions/requests for future tutorials, please feel free to contact me.
