Success with NESTINGWorks

The principal behind the whole project is that CAMWorks makes it a lot easier for the students to understand the process of machining. Given the ease of use of the software, it also allows non-engineering experts to access parts of the manufacturing process that was formerly only accessed by engineers.

Fully integrated within the SOLIDWORKS platform, CAMWorks allows users
to capture and reuse the most efficient machining methods.
  • Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) of prismatic design features.
  • Knowledge-based machining. Allows users to efficiently and quickly machine pockets, slots, bosses, holes, etc.
  • Significantly reduces the amount of time to machine complex multi-step holes.
  • Hole Tap Tool mapping within TechDB enabling automatic hole threading.
  • Automatic Tool sorting.

Post Processors

Critical Functions

The most critical function of a post processor is to translate toolpaths to machine-readable code (also known as G-code), which then communicates with your CNC machine.

Customization Capabilities

ACCESS creates and supports customized post processors that will allow you to decrease setup times, reduce machine cycle times, and remove manual editing.
