Multibody Part Programming

Although ONGAA CAM was designed to take advantage of ‘Assemblies’ with single body parts there are times where multibody parts are required.

ONGAA CAM can now isolate single bodies for programming and with the use of SOLIDWORKS configurations each body can be programmed as a separate part for machining.

This new feature uses the variety of SOLIDWORKS entities selected to determine is a body is to be included in the dimensions of the raw material or not.  With the ‘Ignore Bodies without Selections’ activated only bodies where Faces, Edges or Vertexes are selected will be used for geometric calculations.

Since ONGAA CAM is already ‘Configuration’ aware, creating a configuration (with no special changes) will allow additional programs to be created which are completely separate from any other configuration’s programs. This then allows each body to be oriented (for machining) independently of all other bodies.

ONGAA CAM will incorporate the configuration … Read the rest
