TopSolid'Cam Hint #153
When a part or an operation is repeated, TopSolid allows you to change any of the parameters of the repeated operation. A red marker indicates that the selected parameter is no longer the same as the original. If you click on this marker, you can restore the original value
TopSolid'Sheetmetal Hint #152
The TopSolid’Sheetmetal version 2016 allows to mark the parts directly in the nesting. It’s not compulsory any more to mark the part in the PCH document. This new function offers a bigger flexibility for the users of the solution. Another interesting trick is to be able to modify in dynamics the lines of wastes made in automatic. It allows to adjust at best the wastes to increase the earnings of the material. Then the wastes are centralized in the tab of material of the task manager ready to be...

TopSolid'Cam 7 Hint #149
In 7.9, it's now possible to display the machine in position when you create a tool path. All the previous movements are taken account. On this example, this is the second spindle which is been use to support the part (movement made by a virtual jog before) but it could be steady, turrets or machines elements. It's both available in turning and in milling. In 7.10, it will be available every time, no need to go to WCS menu….
TopSolid'Sheetmetal Hint #147
As standard in TopSolid’Sheetmetal application you benefit of a task manager. This task manager allows you to save a considerable time in the treatment of the parts you have to produce. Using this hint, you will be able to : Centralize the dataThrow automatically parts to be produced according to various selection criteriaGenerate in automatic the nestingFollow the realized ordersManage the wastesEdit operators cards
TopSolid'Cam Hint #146
In TopSolid’Cam, there is an option which allows you to cut a 3D path according to the tool length. By using 3D in operation manager and “tool length management”, there are two possibilities : either it is possible to trim the path to the accessible area with the tool’s characteristics, either it is possible to select more tools to cut the path according to each tool length. The benefit is to have the best rigidity as possible, like that, we have a better quality.
TopSolid'SheetMetal Hint #145
TopSolid'SheetMetal 2014 includes a new function for laser cutting. In the case of "low head" cutting operations which could potentially be dangerous the operator can automatically work around these to avoid all danger.

TopSolid'Cam 7 Hint #143
TopSolid'Cam has very powerful tools to store and standardize your company know-how. Thanks to its methods which are easily generated from an existing machining sequence you can apply your parameters to all other parts. The drag and drop of a method allows you to carry this out. In fact the method adapts itself to the new topology and it is very easy to change the tool paths generated and to update the existing method.
