G-Code generator for Solidworks


#1

I have 2 ProLight CNC machines and need to find a G-Code generator for Solid works. My question is does Solid Works have a generator built in or do I need to find an add on or extra program to get it done?

Thank you

Highly recommend HSMWorks. It’s a Solidworks add-in, so it integrates wonderfully. They also offer it free for students and teachers. You can find the download info here.

I second frcguy. We use it on our TORMACH CNC Mill and I love it. Supper easy, powerful, and the express is free which will do all your 2d stuff.
