GeometricPLM has released an update (SP3.1 build 2018/0627 (27-June-2018)) to CAMWorks 2018. This release has exciting new features in it's fully integrated CAM Software including Tolerance Based Machining, Chuck and Fixture Definition, and more.
CAMWorks 2018 SP3.1 build 2018/0627 (27-June-2018) Release Notes:
CW-82254 When the specific Turn part is opened in CAMWorks 2018 and a rebuild is done then, the Z direction of some of the turn setups gets flipped. The user will not be able to change the direction manually.
CW-82085 The user is unable to save the operation parameters of a 2 Axis contour operation in TechDB. An error message stating “Would you like to proceed without saving” is displayed.
CW-82079 When the toolpath for a contour mill operation on an engrave feature is post processed then, the posted G code would consist the CUTCOM options even though the same hasn’t been enabled in the operation parameters.
CW-81798 When Save Operation Plan is done on a Mill feature then, a crash is observed in CAMWorks. This happens when the TechDB is of the SQL type.
CW-81082 When TechDB data is imported from MS Access database to Techdb app then, the data pertaining to Multi-stepped holes is not imported.
CW-80002 For the specific part, when Extract Machinable Features is done then, a crash is observed. This behavior happens when the TechDB is of the SQL type.
About CAMWorks for SolidWorks. CAMWorks was the first fully integrated computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) solution designed exclusively to operate in SOLIDWORKS and the first to offer knowledge-based, feature recognition, and associative machining capabilities within SOLIDWORKS.
CAMWorks uses the same SOLIDWORKS geometry to generate toolpaths to ensure the part you machine is the same part you’ve modeled. Toolpath simulation allows users to compare “as designed” parts to “as machined” parts. The part model-to-toolpath associativity in CAMWorks increases machining productivity and lowers manufacturing costs by eliminating time-consuming CAM system rework due to design updates.
CAMWorks eliminates the drudgery of CNC programming with Intelligent Machining through automation. Pioneered by Geometric Technologies, this suite of tools automates the generation of toolpaths based on a knowledge-based database. It eliminates hours of complex programming through Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) that automatically defines prismatic machinable features, while the TechDBTM (Technology Database) defines machining operations to automatically generate accurate toolpaths at the click of a button.
CAMWorks machining modules include: 2½ Axis Mill, 3 Axis Mill, Turning, Mill-Turn with 5 Axis Simultaneous Machining Support, 4/5 Axis Simultaneous Machining, and Wire EDM.
