SolidCAM Inc., a world leader in advanced tool path generation technology (CAM) running directly inside SolidWorks, is pleased to announce the availability of SolidCAM / InventorCAM 2021 Documents and Training Materials (Build: 05.08.2021).
In recent years, technological advancements in the machine tool industry has grown exponentially. This acceleration of advancements is a challenge for vocational education. The VDW-Nachwuchsstiftung (foundation for secondary education) aims to strengthen and improve the transfer of knowledge between industry and vocational education.This task-based educational training manual was created by the collaboration of vocational educators and industry trained personnel.The intention of this manual is to introduce the techniques used in the design and manufacturing process. It is important that you exercise self-organization throughout the learning process. This manual also includes some additional information on the technical and methodical aspects of CAD/CAM.
This training manual was developed for you as both an informational and instructional booklet. It is provided to teach you the basics of CAD/CAM technology. The structure of this manual not only conforms to the teaching methods and curriculum guidelines required by schools and universities, but also the methodologies used by design and manufacturing professionals alike. For each task-based lesson, the final process is shown using part and assembly drawings. A general explanation accompanies each task to be performed, which should not be used as a direct solution. The process of determining an answer to each problem should be solved individually. In the same way, the content in this manual was created to help you develop the skills necessary to apply best practices related to CAD/CAM business operations.Like in today’s manufacturing departments, you will have to produce the components and final assembled part for an adjustable workpiece stop (vise stop). Each lesson is comprised of the following tasks: Analysis of the task in relation to the final goal Planning of a workflowImplementation of the workflow in the design, manufacturing and documentation Presentation of the results followed by discussion Reflection of the procedures and the end result
About SolidCAM product family. SolidCAM, InventorCAM and the standalone SolidCAM CAD/CAM suite are the flagship products. SolidCAM and InventorCAM integrate with SolidWorks and Inventor, respectively. Officially approved partners and all that. Their CNC programming toolsets look and feel like the CAD systems as much as possible, making the learning curve shorter. You define, calculate and verify all your machining operations without leaving the CAD environment. They can handle programming 2.5- to 5-axis machining, high-speed surface milling, wire EDM, etc. Their models are fully associative, so your toolpaths update when you make a part change. There are no import/export hassles, and you don’t have to learn some CAM system’s idea of a CAD application to make them work.
iMachining – basically, this is a wizard-based technology — patented, BTW — that makes defining cutting conditions easy by automatically calculating the cutting conditions for your toolpath. You give it your toolpath, stock, tool material and machine specifications then it derives optimal feeds, step over depths and widths as well as cutting speeds. For you old hands, the company says iMachining can save you 70% or more in CNC machining time and extends tool life dramatically.
