    Wondering if anyone has set up a post processor for SolidWorks CAM yet? I’ve used Solidworks just about every day since 2005 other than when I was on a specific customers project requiring Pro-E, or Inventor. If would be great for me in the mean time I’m feeling my way around EstlCAM.

     

    Thanks

    Is that HSM works?

    My opinion, with a solid amount of experience in all the programs you mentioned as well, estlcam is a much better use of your time.

    No it’s not HSM works. its a licensed version of CAMworks that comes with every version of SolidWorks starting with 2018. EstlCAM looks ok.

    Camworks has free(?) software to build custom post processor. But at first look this tool looks like a monster from stone age

    But you may try to make such one
