ONGAA CAM – Pack and Go Improvements

newpackandgoThe Solidworks ‘Pack and Go’ feature is an indispensable tool for copying entire assemblies when replicating previously completed work.  The only shortfall of this tool when used with ONGAA CAM is that external information could not be included and this would result in manually copying ONGAA CAM files and renaming them if parts or assemblies were renamed during the Pack and Go process.

The original ONGAA CAM Pack and Go feature would copy parts and assemblies WITH the ONGAA CAM programs but would not allow renaming of parts.  Not being able to rename caused extra work if renaming was required.

The new ONGAA CAM Pack and GO now offers the ability to rename parts and assemblies similar to the Solidworks tool but also includes all related ONGAA CAM programs to be copied and renamed. As with the Solidworks Tool, the ONGAA CAM feature will also create zip files which allows … Read the rest

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) or ‘BPP’ / Biesseworks programming files, from within SOLIDWORKS.  While working in SOLIDWORKS, you design and apply toolpaths for WoodWOP/Biesseworks without conversions or DXF files.  The MPRs/BPPs created by ONGAA CAM are 100% Weeke/Homag or Biesse compliant and require no manual edits.  ONGAA CAM is NOT a post-processor.  ONGAA CAM does NOT generate G-Code.  MPR s / BPP s generated by ONGAA CAM are processed by the Weeke / Homag or Biesseworsks post-processor you already have so there is no additional software costs.  This means you only need to define tools once in WoodWOP/Biesseworks, you keep all the safety features built into approach modes and the operator can adjust the MPR / BPP at the console. For those working with WoodWOP 6.1 and the new MPRX format, Read the rest

ONGAA CAM – Real Parts – SOLIDWORKS to WoodWOP

may2012 113It is not often that a customer is so pleased with a product that they take extra time to say ‘thank you’.

In this case the thank you came as ‘The First Part’ the customer produced with ONGAA CAM.

The part was modeled in SOLIDWORKS 2011 and used ONGAA CAM V1.140 for the HOMAG series CNC machines.

 

 

 


 

Once processing was applied,ONGAA CAM produced the MPR file  (compatible with WoodWOP 5 and 6) used to NC Gen the final instructions.

The only issues we ran into was getting the part drawn accurately.  The beauty was as we corrected the drawing,all our processing moved with it.  ’No recalculations required!’.

This view of WoodWOP provides a glimpse into how it could have been created manually with each calculation done by hand. (and drawing changes need to be recalculated)

 


The part required machining on all 6 sides.  With the … Read the rest
