What is ONGAA CAM?

ONGAA CAM, Features and PricingONGAA CAM is a program specifically designed for woodworking that allows you to create ‘MPR’ / ‘WoodWOP machining procedures’ (for Homag/Weeke CNC machines),  ‘BPP or CIX’ / Biesseworks programming files, ‘HOP’ files for ‘Holzher’ or G-Code for other machines, from within SOLIDWORKS.  While working in SOLIDWORKS, you design and apply toolpaths without conversions or DXF files.  The files created by ONGAA CAM are 100% Weeke/Homag / Biesse / Hops compliant and require no additional manual edits.  MPRs / BPPs /CIXs /HOPs files generated by ONGAA CAM are processed by the respective post-processor you already have so there is no additional software costs.  This means you only need to define tools once in WoodWOP/Biesseworks/Hops, you keep all the safety features built into approach modes and the operator can adjust the MPR / BPP at the console.  G-Code is generated by the internal post-process for gcode driven machine.

ONGAA CAM – Extending the parametric model beyond WoodWOP

Before I can explain how ONGAA CAM extends parametric models,a definition of what that is is due. ‘Parametric’–with the use of parameters –is a way of defining something where parameters or variables are used to make something scale.

  • For example,a box,24″by 12″by 6″can be said to be half as wide as it is long and half as deep as it is wide,and the box is 24″long (LENGTH).

In this simple example,only one number need be provided and all other number can be derived.  With this model any sized box can be made and it will always retain the desired proportions. If only it were that simple …. Lets take that same example and add a little reality…make the box out of 1/2 ”plywood (this applies to all sizes).  The simple addition of a fixed width makes the dimension of the ‘components’of the box a little more complex to calculate,but still
