Whats New in ONGAA CAM

New User Features

Since ONGAA CAM was first introduced the design team have been working hard to incorporate new features requested by our users.  Here we try to highlight what’s new in ONGAA CAM’s recent releases.


QR Codes & Data Matrix

Encoding for optical readers (barcode readers) is an important part of automation.  With 2-D encoding more data can be encoded and reliably read.  ONGAA CAM can now provide Solidworks Custom property data as QR Code and Data Matrix format as well as standard 3 of 9 barcodes.


CNC + ABD Programs – one click

ONGAA CAM for HOMAG can split programs out automatically when 2 station machining is required.  While all vertical instructions go to the nesting CNC, horizontal processing goes to the ABD.  Of particular interest are the dowel insertion instructions which are simply a ‘Horizontal Drill’ with dowelling checkboxes.  Both the new and old WoodWOP instructions can … Read the rest

ONGAA CAM – Biesse – CIX file Generation

In order to promote the effectiveness of ONGAA CAM when working with bSolid instead of BiesseWorks, ONGAA CAM now produces CIX programs in addition to BPP.

Although bSolid will import straight forward BPP files without any need to manipulate the file in any way, we have had several reports of bSolid importing some process options incorrectly which would either ‘break’ a process or negate its usefulness.  In particular, Vertical milling in steps was rendered ineffective as Z and Depth were swapped when imported.  Horizontal steps was also ‘broken’ due to the step increment being imported as a negative.

To support our customers who are now using bSolid, we have endeavoured to both debug the BPP  import issues as well as provide a better working solution.… Read the rest

ONGAA CAM for Biesse – Nesting module is now available

With the release of 1.3.12 of ONGAA CAM for Biesse, the optional nesting module is now available.

The Nesting Option provides the ability to nest complete assemblies at one time. Nesting features include 8 fill/nest options auto nesting, grain alignment, manual moves after auto nesting, tool change / free motion optimization and automatic sheet splitting based on named material and material thickness.  Up to 99 sheets can be nested at one time.  When sheet splitting is used, each material ‘sheet size’ can be selected from a sheet library.

Different options can be tried while in preview and once satisfied the layouts can be ‘Accepted’.  Printed layout sheets are also available.

A nested program is created for each sheet as a standard BPP program.  This allows the operator to make ‘on the shop floor’ changes without the need to regenerate the files etc.  This is particularly useful when tools need to … Read the rest
