Camworks is a feature-based machining CAM system that provides the ability to automatically recognize many prismatic features including tapers.
Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) analyzes part shapes and attempts to define the most common machinable features such as pockets, bosses, holes and slots.
AFR recognizes features on native SolidWorks part models or on solid models imported via IGES, SAT, etc.
MfgView, a new generation of AFR, finds additional feature types and allows non-hole features to be edited. MfgView also provides the ability to recognize features from a user-defined direction only.
Local Feature Recognition is a selective form of AFR based on user-selected faces.
Interactive Feature Recognition
Camworks provides a wizard for defining features that are not recognized automatically or features that need to be defined for your facility’s machining requirements. Wrapped features can be defined interactively for 4th/5th Axis indexing.
2½ Axis Milling
2½ Axis Milling includes automatic roughing, contouring (finishing), thread milling and single point (drilling, boring, reaming, tapping) cycles to machine prismatic features.
Machining algorithms use the latest toolpath and gouge protection methods.
Cutting cycles provide fast, error-free toolpaths.
Toolpath optimization based on grid or shortest path method.
Arc fit splines for Rough, Contour and Face Mill operations.
Insert Contain and Avoid Areas for Rough and Contour operations.
Depth processing by area or by level for Rough and Contour operations.
Option to automatically generate an Entry Drill operation for Rough and Contour operations.
Canned cycle support: drill, pecking, high speed pecking, variable pecking, bore, bore w/dwell, back boring, fine boring, counter boring, ream, ream w/dwell, tapping, reverse tapping.
Specify machining depth to tool tip or full tool diameter (drill, bore, tap, ream, and thread mill operations).
Countersink and center drill operations: automatic calculation of machining depth based on tool size/shape, countersink diameter.
A 2 Axis rough mill operation removes material by following the machinable feature shape or by making parallel cuts across the feature.
