Its a very basic issue that i am dealing with but i just cant handle it my self so…
I wanna learn Solidcam I tried it like this, I go to http://www.solidcam.com/getting_started_en,44790.html this site where I have all the tutorials nicely done. I also have the tutorial files in my solidcam directory, the first tutorial on the site is the file “2_5D_Milling_1.prz” so I open it, and till this moment everything is ok.
Then I do everything just like on the site (just like the professor does it), and when the program is asking me for the file name and path I just click ok (so does the fellow on the site) and this is what I get: “original model documents name "CAM" and/or "desing model| conflict with SolidCam reserved names. Pleas rename them and try again.”
So I renamed the model name, then the directory, then I tried taking out the model from the prz by exporting it back to “sldprt” and then trying to start a new milling process …. And over and over again, so I guess it seams I am missing something or something is wrong with the program…but I can open some other sldprt files in solidcam, but the thing is I need to learn on the tutorial files, whats wrong ?? ;/ pleas HELP
