Thread: Increase cavity by X and Y axis.

    Default Increase cavity by X and Y axis.

    Greetings of the day, Experts.
    Need a peculiar solution in Solidcam (addon with Solidworks).
    Have a cavity in the model and using it for cam program in our Hot Forging Dies. Depending of the type of forging and forging equipment, we have to either increase the cavity or decrease as compensation.
    To compensate the shrinkage allowance of the hot forged component, we would like to enlarge the cavity in X and Y axis by the desired value ranging from 0.2 to 0.6 mm in the cam program. We have tried using the Boundary-Tool Relation with selection of Internal or Centered and offset value as 0.3. But the cavity is not enlarging by 0.3/0.6mm.
    is there any other option to enlarge or decrease the cavity only in the program with the model as constant. That would be helpful.
    Please render your support, guidance and help in this regard.
    Regards.

    Greetings of the day, @machinehop5,
    You are referring to solidworks. but what i am looking for is a solution in solidcam to compensate the shrinkage allowance by creating a cavity by enlarging or adding the compensate to the shrinkage which could be from 0.2 to 0.6 mm depending on the grade of material, type of equipment and intricacy of the cavity.
    Regards.
