Webinar Wednesday 08/09/2017 - Post processing is a critical part of any CAM system, and one that many CAM users don’t know how to manipulate effectively. Join our CAMWorks Technical Expert, Daniel Lyon, for an in-depth look at how you can customize your post processor to optimize machining performance and prevent costly mistakes and rework. You will learn how to create your own CAMWorks post processor using the Universal Post Generator and EC Editor and witness how the different post files interact with each other. Sign up for the webinar to dive under-the-covers of CAMWorks Post-processing and take control of your machining. -- Presented by Daniel Lyon
When using CAMWorks turning, the software locatates the chuck on one side of the part by default. At times the user may wish to program from the opposide end. This video explains how to set up your coordinate point on the opposite end of the part.
This video shows how to program a Corner Slot both automatically using the Automatic Feature Recognition, and then manually using the Insert New 2.5 Axis feature. It also shows the functionality of the Air Segment Offset feature.
Introduction to turning (programming for a CNC lathe) in CAMWorks. This video introduces the programming workflow for automatic and interactive feature definition on a 2 axis (single turret) turned part.
Introduction to the 3 axis Roughing and Finishing strategies available in CAMWorks. Easily program internal cavities and external features without having to manually select faces. Broad overview of finishing strategies including Constant Stepover, Z level, Slice, Spiral, Radial, and Flowline.
This video will show how to set up your machine definition in the CAMWorks TechDB. In the video we set up a mill machine but the same workflow and logic can be employed for lathes, mill-turn machines, and wire EDM machines.
