SOLIDWORKS® CAM is a 2.5 axis milling and turning solution powered by CAMWorks®. SOLIDWORKS CAM offers 3+2 machining as well as full support for configurations, parts and assembly machining workflows.
SOLIDWORKS CAM is a fully integrated, Knowledge Based technology that allows you to integrate design and manufacturing processes under one system to evaluate designs earlier in the process to avoid unexpected costs and delays in finishing products on time. SOLIDWORKS CAM uses a rules-based machining to enhance the programming process in the same way rules-based design helped to speed up the drawing and design process.
SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard is available to all SOLIDWORKS 2018 CAD licenses with active subscription service and will have the following functionality:
- 2.5 Axis
- Parts only
- Tolerance Based Machining
SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard lets you quickly program individual milled parts and configurations without leaving the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD environment. You have full access to defining rules within SOLIDWORKS CAM to create and build to your company standards, as well as Tolerance-Based Machining (TBM).
SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional builds on the functionality of SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard adding the following:
- High Speed Machining
- 3+2 Machining
SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional offers increased programming capabilities that include High-Speed Machining (HSM), configurations, assembly machining, turning, and 3 + 2 programming to drive four- and five-axis machines.
With SOLIDWORKS CAM you will be able to enhance your manufacturing process by capturing company standard, speed up quoting, and test manufacturability of a design earlier in the process. SOLIDWORKS CAM combines design and manufacturing in one application with an easy-to-use interface.
