CAMWorks / SolidCAM
Looks like GSSL now has full control of Teksoft.
It seems to me that development of CAMWorks has been very,
very slow for the last say 2 years.
GSSL and SolidWorks Corp. have always been close partners.
Anyone using the latest verson of CAMWorks and have any comments on
how happy you are or are not with it ?
Looks like SolidCAM is seeing a lot of development but it still looks like
a lot of things are missing. Anyone using SolidCAM ?
I have been using SolidCAM for about 2 months now and I like it very
much.The integration with SolidWorks is very useful, espe...Solidcam or Camworks?
I noticed that both Solidcam and Camworks are gold partners. I
would be interested in comments from anyone who has used or evaluated
You might want to post this to "alt.machines.cnc" as well. There's at least
one regular there (Kathy) who uses Solidcam on a daily basis. She also has
experience with Mastercam so she has something to compare it to.
There may also be someone there that uses Camworks. I've only demoed
Camworks so I won't offer an opinion other than it seems to be very good at

Well, the $21000 Camworks software has arrived. I have three days to
learn it before the 5 axis router gets here. We still haven't hired the
machinist to run the router yet. Any machinists familiar with Haas
routers looking for work in the Portland area? You won't be familiar
with Haas 5 axis routers, since this is the first one. Go to our web

For the first time SolidCAM looks to me like it's *finally* becoming a
viable alternative. While still needing plenty of work, it seems like
SolidCAM is actually now headed in the right direction.
I looked at R11 and it was a mess. R12 looks much better.
Anyone know when the long awaited 64bit version might show up?
What is planned for SolidCAM 2009?

The place I work in is looking at Solid Edge, and I had a nice chat
with the rep. He indicated to me that the next release of Solid Edge
(current is v18) would partner with NX Cam, much in the same way that
SolidWorks is with Cosmos. I've been saying this for a while, if
SolidWorks were to join with Mastercam, they could be the killer app
for job shops. But if Mastercam does not get on board, I'm sure
SolidWorks can find another partner, because this looks like the next
logical direction for CAD to go into. If SE and SW (and eventually
Autodesk) start battling it out in the CAM arena, ...posts for SolidCam
I have been manual CNCing for about 17 years doing mostly digitizing
and duplication of complex surfaces. I would like to start from
scratch and learn solid modeling CAD and
CAM. I've been leaning towards Solidworks with SolidCam but am worried
about the ease of making custom postprocessors for my old, antiquated
machines. I know MasterCam has a very nice, user friendly
postprocessor tool and could also start with that with MCX etc.

Hello again friends ^_^
as I promised you last time : https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.cad.solidworks/LUikwr_i0EY

This software is very important for Mechanical & Production (Industrial) Engineers , and it concerns cutting operation , there're many other similar programs .. but this one is the easiest to use and handle
The first Part is already posted on our blog & Youtube , and you can view it from here : http://goo.gl/FbBmlK

effortlessly with SolidWorks.

Looks to me like development on CAMWorks has slowed way down.
Anyone using CAMWorks who likes it have anything to say about
development on CAMWorks latest release ?
Does the new 3 axis toolpath surfacing module still gouge like the
old one did ? It looks very basic in it's functionality.

A Engineer friend decided to purchase some surplus CNC machinery and
open up a Design and Prototype Shop. He also purchased a new seat of
CAMWorks so he could run CAM directly from SolidWorks. He felt this was
best for his situation since he has never programmed, set up or
operated a CNC before.
He brought me in to show him how to set up his CNC machinery and I did.
He is a quick learner so towards the end of the training we had some
time and decided to try out CAMWorks, I wasn't expecting much. I have
never used CAMWorks and He hadn't had any training on it at that point.

What possible purpose does the copy machine RMB option have?
I have a part that needs two mill setups, so I made a fixture that'll do
both. I thought I could set up the parts in the fixture, use the copy
machine feature or insert a 2nd setup, so I could contain both programs for
each setup on one file but now it doesn't seem that will work. also, once
you "copy machine" is there any stinking way to delete it and go back to one
machine? It is driving me crazy.. thanks..
Instead of using 'copy machine', just RMB from the features tab on an

I used to be a CNC programmer who used SolidWorks and MasterCAM(Mill
Level3) several years ago. Even though I'm not in this field anymore I
still continue to read up on CAD and CAM as you never know where live
leads you. I justnoticed that there is a product called SolidCAM that
"runs inside" SolidWorks( and it looks like Inventor?). How exactly
does this work if SolidCAM is not owned by SolidWorks?
When looking over the SolidCAM website they seem to be intergrated in
quite a bit of packages (Bently, SolidWorks, AutoCad & Inventor) and I
had never heard of this product ...SolidCAM 2009 At SolidWorks World.
Hope the SolidCAM booth is nowhere near CNC Software's booth at
SolidWorks World because it looks to me like SolidCAM 2009 is just as
impressive, if not more so, than SolidCAM 2008 R12. SolidCAM R12 was
easily the most impressive CAM release last year. See the Jon Banquer
blog for more details on why SolidCAM 2008 R12 was such an impressive
SolidCAM 2009 will be fast and it will have toolpath editing!

PC connected to mill gets its CAMWorks license from Windows Server using
FlexLM. Network is wireless. Operator reports that CAMWorks stops working.
License status window shows all the licenses greyed out and gone. Clicking
the Refresh button in the license status dialog doesn't do anything.
Restarting Solidworks restores normal operation. Anyone else experience
this? We're gonna try to snake a hard wire from the nearest network jack to
the PC to see if it's related to the wireless (possibly a dropout). All
other networked applications (email, web, file sharing) continue to w...CamWorks and SolidWorks hole wizard features
Our machine shop uses Camworks for our parts designed in SolidWorks.
When countersink or counterbored features are put in using the hole
wizard, CamWorks does not automatically recognize the csink or cbore
portion. If the same feature is put in as a cut extrude vs. cut
revolve, then everything works fine. Anyone else come across this?
As a designer, I use the hole wizard as a convenient way to save time,
but it ends up taking our programmer extra time to manually program
