[solved]Simulation or verification cam file without TopSolid

Unread post by M Jacobs » Fri Sep 14, 2012 1:58 pm


Is it possible to play the simulation or the verification of a cam file without having TopSolid installed at your pc?
In our factory people only have installed the TopSolid viewer to open top-files, but it's not possible to simulate the cam-file. The pc's in the factory are to old to run TopSolid cam. I know it's possible to make a movie (screen recording) but that's not what I'm looking for.

Has anyone an idea how i can get a simulation?

Save your CAM file with the layers that have programs ( above 200) visible, and when you open the Cam file in viewer you can see the toolpath in each layer, but it's not possible to see the simulation...
