Inserting a contain area inside Camworks

Insert Contain areas feature inside CAMWorks allows designers specify limits of a certain milling operation. Contain areas can be added to rough milling operations and also contour mills.

This helps avoid milling areas that are not required to be milled. It makes it easy to specify limits of milling operations thus reducing machine idle time. Contain areas are basically the exact opposite of avoid areas.

Rather than specifying the area we want to keep out off, the contain area feature Continue reading

Tutorial On CAMWorks with Solidworks

CAMWorks is a Computer Aided Manufacturing software that directly integrates itself with Solidworks once it’s installed on your pc. The CAMWorks add-in is automatically configured in the Solidworks add-in and once you click the checkbox it automatically appears on the tool bar explorer whenever you open a part.

In this demonstration we will look to machine the above part using CAMWorks.

We first have to define the stock which CAMWorks automatically does by tracing the outline of the parts. Continue reading

How Solidworks and Camworks can help manufacturers

Integration with SOLIDWORKS, CAMWorks allows you to:

  • Use and manage just one file for both CAD and CAM systems.
  • Use the CAMWorks machining tree and commands at the click of a button along with SOLIDWORKS, plus generate toolpaths without leaving the familiar SOLIDWORKS environment.
  • Use the same SOLIDWORKS geometry to generate toolpaths to ensure the part machined is the same as the part that is modeled.
  • Eliminate time-consuming file transfers using standard file formats such as IGES and STP.
