A Message from SolidCAM
As Seen In Modern Machine Shop
Integrated CAM Software Supports Turn-Mill, Multi-Axis Cutting
SolidCAM will showcase its CAM programming solution for CNC machines directly integrated within SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor.
Machining Module Optimizes Speeds and Feeds
SolidCAM’s iMachining technology module integrates into SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor to save cutting time and increase tool life.
Retired Yet Inspired to Learn Machining
A retired engineer with no prior machining experience is learning how to be a machinist. His quickly increasing skillset demonstrates how new machining technology is becoming more capable and easier to pick up and apply.
CAM Suite Features Moldmaking Updates
The most recent version of SolidCAM features upgrades for mold and insert machining, including its iMachining 3D, HSM and simultaneous five-axis modules.
CAM Software Features Probe Module
SolidCAM 2013 SP2 offers enhancements across all modules, including 2.5D milling, iMachining 2D and 3D, and others, as well as a new “solid probe” module.
Webinar: Unlocking Productivity Potential from Existing Design Tools, CNC Machines and Tooling.
A free webinar sponsored by SolidCAM on Wednesday, August 28, will feature a live machining demo and showcase techniques for increasing CNC machine throughput, reducing cycle time, extending tool life and simplifying CNC programming techniques.
Inconel Meets Match in General-Purpose End Mill
This difficult Inconel application demonstrates that even some basic tool designs can perform admirably when paired with the right tool paths.
“Intelligent” CAM System Adapts to the Job
SolidCAM’s iMachining CAM software features an algorithm designed to eliminate potentially time-consuming, trial-and-error approaches to optimizing cutting parameters.
CAM Benefits Extend Beyond the Tool Path
This CAM software not only provides an effective tool path strategy, but also takes application-specific variables into account when applying that strategy.
Lights, Camera ... Cycle Start
A new show dramatically portrays real-life manufacturing and CNC machining. The pilot episode is now playing.
Machine STL Files With SolidCAM
SolidCAM has implemented STL cutting capability into SolidCAM2009. The module enables the user to directly machine STL files, which can be used in 3D scanning and rapid prototyping applications to describe 3D surface geometry. The module generates the stock box and the CAM part directly from the STL file.
Three-Step Creation Process For Inspection Program
SolidCAM describes its SolidCMM application as a complete inspection process that improves quality and reduces programming time. According to the company, an inspection program can be created in minutes. The part data (model and drawing) then can be simulated and verified in a virtual machine environment before it is transferred to the inspection machine in a standard CMM format.
Combined Strategies For High Speed Machining
SolidCAM2008 R12 incorporates more than 100 new features. Its enhanced Automatic Feature Recognition and Machining capability (AFRM) supports automatic recognition and machining of multi-level closed and open pockets in a solid model. This version offers an extended tool table for milling and links in addition to e
