Cnc Milling Setup In Solidworks 2011

Recommended Posts

Hi guys...


I am setting up a model to be CNC'd. I know that for a CNC there needs to be set tolerances for the mill bit, i.e. not 'overhanging' edges and corners should be filleted so that the mill bit does not tear the model apart. Is there a way in solidworks where the software will automatically check this for you? ....or do i have to check every edge and surface individually (tedious!)?


The pic is of the model I am doing (solar PV cell cutaway), I am making a more basic model of it to be CNC'd, and It will be losing it's transparency which is a shame, but none the less, it should be nice once finished. I am CNCing 4 sides together to make the model.


Any help would be awesome!
