SolidCAM 2016 for SolidWorks 2012-2017
SolidCAM has the Certified Gold-product status from SolidWorks since 2003 and provides seamless, single-window integration and full associativity to the SolidWorks design model. All machining operations are defined, calculated and verified, without leaving the SolidWorks window.
About SolidCAM Inc.
SolidCAM Inc. is a world leader in advanced tool path generation technology (CAM) running directly inside SolidWorks. SolidCAM features a full line of CNC machine programming software solutions ranging from 2 axis lathes and 3 axis mills to extremely complex multi-axis MillTurn machines and Wire Edm. All products run directly inside SolidWorks and provide the user with a true “SolidWorks look and feel” for ease of use and maximum efficiency. Along with the integrated interface and scalability for new machines, SolidCAM also has its patented “iMachining” that powers users to new levels of productivity and profits, through unmatched cycle time reduction and unrivaled tool life.
Features of SolidCAM 2016
SolidCAM – CAD / CAM system developed by a new generation of Israeli firm SolidCAM Ltd (official distributor in Russia – Consistent Software). This system is a complete solution for automating the production of metal. With the use of a wide range of proposed strategies SolidCAM turning, milling, turning, milling and electrical discharge machining process engineer can in a short time to prepare the necessary set of control programs for machining products.
Support for 64bit computing by having a special version for the SW 64bit
SolidCAM provides high efficiency and accuracy of the 2.5-axis milling parts. Supports different strategies for handling items such as contour, sampling (including islands) and a groove, as well as various types of hole machining: drilling, reaming, threading, etc. The system has a wide range of features 2,5-axis machining of analytic surfaces..
SolidCAM provides a wide range of tools that can be used effectively for the treatment of products with complex geometry (dies, molds) and prismatic parts. As the geometry for 3-axis machining using a three-dimensional surface or solid model. The system supports a variety of roughing and finishing strategies, such as the RIP with the specified or automatically determined by the angle of the raster processing of equidistant, projection processing, handling at the waterline, etc.
In addition to the listed capacity 2,5 and 3-axis machining, SolidCAM provides tools to identify and refine areas not treated in previous transitions. You can create a database of standard processes. Once created, a parameterized process can be reused in the future, which significantly reduces the time of preparation of production, enhances the reliability of the developed programs, unifies the style of technological development, ensures that only the best processing technology and ensures the independence of the human factor. Lack zarezany guarantee the availability of means of control and visualization of machining.
SolidCAM provides various tools for creating control multi-processing programs on the 4- and 5-axis machining centers. The model is set in a user-plane processing, after which the system automatically calculates all necessary parameters for the displacement and rotation of zero items. As a result, significantly reduces set-up time of transition and increases accuracy.
Lathes and milling
SolidCAM has lots of features to automate the creation of control programs for turning and turning and milling. SolidCAM supports various types of tool that allows you to effectively perform longitudinal turning, facing, grooving, and others. In addition, SolidCAM automatically perform roughing and finishing of complex contours. Support rotating tool allows you to perform milling and drilling transitions to processing centers.
Electrical discharge machining
The proposed set of SolidCAM Wire EDM strategies allows processing of external and internal contours of constant and variable angle. The possibility of 4-axis machining. A special algorithm to prevent the fall of the treated material. SolidCAM provides user controls physical processing parameters on the entire trajectory of the wire.
