Que es ONGAA CAM?

ONGAA CAM, Features and PricingEs un programa diseñado específicamente para trabajar la madera y que le permite crear procedimientos mecanizados ‘MPR / WoodWOP para maquinas CNC Homag/Weeke o archivos programables BiesseWorks ‘BPP’ o archivos programables Holzher ‘HOP’ desde el interior de Solidworks. Mientras se trabaja en Solidworks se diseña y se aplican trayectos de herramienta para WoodWOP/Biesseworks/Campus sin conversiones o archivos DXF. Los MPRs / BPPs / HOPs creados por ONGAA CAM son 100% Weeke/Homag o Biesse o Holzher compatibles y no requieren  correcciones manuales.  MPRs / BPPs / HOPs generados por ONGAA CAM son procesados por el post-procesador HOMAG/BIESSE/NCHOP que ya tienen, por tanto, no hay gastos de software adicionales. Esto significa que solo define herramientas una vez en WoodWOP/BiesseWorks/bSolid/Campus, se mantienen todas las operaciones de seguridad integradas en modalidad de aproximación y si es necesario, el operador puede ajustar el MPR/BPP en la consola. Para los que trabajan con WoodWOP 6-7 y Read the rest

Reset the SolidWorks Planes to Z axis up — and call that the Top.

From those of us that are accustomed to working in ‘Machine Space’, the Z-Axis is always UP.   So why on earth does SolidWorks insist that Y is up?

Rather that ask and then answer the question, I’d would rather show you how to change it.  What we will do in the steps below is reset the default views and rename the default planes for both parts and assemblies and save the changes into the Part and Assembly templates.

 

Open Solidworks and create a new PART

The default view is most likely trimetric view and look like this.

We will be using the Triad to change and verify the views we want in several steps.

 

 

 

First, change to the Front View.  Use Ctrl-1 or the Heads-up menu or Spacebar
The Triad should look like this.

 

 

 

 

 

Now use the Spacebar to get access … Read the rest

ONGAA CAM Generates MRPs in Inches

INCHES for Operators

Although the ‘underlying’ Units of measure of both SOLIDWORKS and WoodWOP are metric, this does not help operators accustomed to units in Inches.

Since one of the 4 ‘Guiding Mandates’ of ONGAA CAM is ‘ allow the operator to perform all operations as before’, we felt we should do something about this.

As of version 1.3.34, ONGAA CAM generates WoodWOP programs in Inches.  This is independent of the Units of Measure of the model or programming units.  Simply turn the option ON and ONGAA CAM creates the MPR with the WoodWOP Inch indicator ON and values in inches.  All ‘geometric measures’ are converted to Inches as the MPR is generated.  This includes all X,Y,Z locations, distances, radii and depths.

It should be noted that, at this time, programming in ONGAA CAM is still in metric (expected and displayed).  This ensures that all programs (old and new) will … Read the rest

Getting Started with ONGAA CAM – Basic Overview


IN SOLIDWORKS

Getting started with ONGAA CAM is straight forward and easy to learn. In this page you will have all the information to get started programming in no time.  Details about individual processes like Pockets and Routing and how to take advantage of the time saving features can be found in the process specific tutorial pages.


STARTING ONGAA CAM

ONGAA CAM is an ‘AddIn’ to SOLIDWORKS and becomes available when a PART or ASSEMBLY is open.

With a PART open, both the ‘Command Manager’ bar

CommandBar

and the toolbar become available.

ToolBar

Most icons represent the familiar WoodWOP processes and greyed-out icons are not active (unavailable).

 


GETTING STARTED

Workpiece_Icon

 

To open the programming interface, click the ‘Workpiece’ icon.  This will open the Process List allowing access to add more processes as well as viewing or changing the details of existing processes.  If no previous process definitions (MPR) exist you will … Read the rest

Acerca de nosotros

Making WoodWOP and SOLIDWORKS come together.ONGAA CAM se creo a través de la asociación de ONG Solutions ( Desarrollo de software ) y WindowCraft (fabricante de puertas y ventanas personalizadas) que combina lo mejor de 35+ años de fabricación de alta calidad de productos de madera, con 25+ años de desarrollo innovador de soluciones software.

 

Simplificando el diseño y configuración de procesos, nuestro enfoque es de obtener el máximo provecho de los productos CNC HOMAG/WEEKE ó Biesse.

El producto mantiene su objetivo con requerimientos reales que salen directamente de la oficina y planta de fabricación.

Necesito poder diseñar un sistema de ventana una vez, pero fabricar en 1000 tamaños diferentes, sin tener que empezar de cero cada vez.

Este mandato es lo que impulsa el desarrollo de opciones tal como ha hecho desde un principio.

La misma filosofía se extiende a la integración con el sistema CNC HOMAG o Biesse.
