CAMWorks Tips: How to use a corner round tool.

CAD-CAM Engineering

In general a corner round tool is used to apply a radius instead of a chamfer to the edge. In CAMWorks, the user have the ability to use the corner round tools available in the technology data library or define very easy a new one. If you want to access a corner round tool, go to tool crib and then add a new tool from library, just like in the photos below:

CAMWorks Tips: Sort operations.

CAD-CAM Engineering

In CAMWorks the sort operations command allows you to sort operations in a logical machining sequence based on user-defined sort rules. When you activate this command the dialog box displays two tabs:
33
PROCESS TAB: the options on the Process tab in the Sort Operations dialog box allow you to establish the rules for sorting operations. These options are used in conjunction with the conditions that are specified on the Sort tab. Here we have three options:

– By setup: within each setup, operations are sorted according to the following rules:

Based on the Process complete feature option, operations will be grouped by feature.
The operations will then be sorted according to the Sort by condition as specified on the Sort tab.
Next, the operations will be sorted based on the optional setting of the Then by condition as specified on the Sort tab.
The operations will then be…

Additive Manufacturing.

CAD-CAM Engineering

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is an appropriate name to describe the technologies that build 3D objects byadding layer-upon-layer of material, whether the material is plastic, metal, concrete or one day…..human tissue.

Common to AM technologies is the use of a computer, 3D modeling software (Computer Aided Design or CAD), machine equipment and layering material. Once a CAD sketch is produced, the AM equipment reads in data from the CAD file and lays downs or adds successive layers of liquid, powder, sheet material or other, in a layer-upon-layer fashion to fabricate a 3D object.

The term AM encompasses many technologies including subsets like 3D Printing, Rapid Prototyping (RP), Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM), layered manufacturing and additive fabrication.

AM application is limitless. Early use of AM in the form of Rapid Prototyping focused on preproduction visualization models. More recently, AM is being used to fabricate end-use products in aircraft, dental restorations, medical implants…

CAMWorks vs. BobCAD-CAM.

CAD-CAM Engineering

Prerequisites:

CAMWorks is a product who has the ability to recognize automatically over 20 types of prismatic features on native SolidWorks part models or on solid models imported via IGES, SAT, etc. Feature based machining reduces programming time by as much as 90% compared to traditional CAM software. Also, CAMWorks allow you to capture and reuse your programmers and machinists best practices using the patented tehcnology database (techDB). The techdb reduces programming time by as much as 80% and provides a company owned database to store employee knowledge and skill.

BobCAD-CAM software for milling delivers advanced 2.5..5 axis cutting capabilities with a fully integrated CAD design system that allows you to seamlessly transition from designing your part model to assigning advanced milling toolpaths. The CAD-CAM software for milling offers powerful toolpath options to allow you to perform high speed machining and multiaxis cutting operations that take full advantage of your…

CAMWorks – Airplane Machining ( Volumill and Virtual Machine ).

CAD-CAM Engineering

Using the powerful tools from CAMWorks 2017, like Volumill Technology Expert, I created two roughing operation using volumill pattern. Using this amazing tool, now when you choose to work with volumill, you have assistance in choosing the right feeds and speeds.

2

Simulating the toolpath in CAMWorks is complete, either you use the simulate toolpath from the CAMWorks Opearation Toolbar or you decide to use an amazing tool for simulation, which is CAMWorks Virtual Machine. Having the 3D model of the machine, devices and parts it’s now easy to define everything in Virtual Machine in order to have a complete simulation.

CAMWorks vs. Fusion 360.

CAD-CAM Engineering

Prerequisites:

CAMWorks is an intuitive, feature-based CAM software that helps the user to increase productivity using best in class technologies and adaptable automation to maximize CNC machining efficiency. CAMWorks works on a SolidWorks Platform, with its own CAD system, CAMWorks Solids.

Fusion 360 is a CAD/CAM tool that can connect your development process in a single cloud-based platform. The CAM capabilities of Fusion 360 share the same kernel as HSMWorks and Inventor HSM, enabling you to generate toolpathS for your parts.

Test:

A simple 2.5 axis part, some simple operations in order to decide which product suits your company.

Conclusion:

Please watch the video below.
