SOLIDWORKS® CAM - powered by CAMWorks - uses rules-based technology that enables you to integrate design and manufacturing in one application, connecting design and manufacturing teams through a common software tool and 3D model.
SOLIDWORKS CAM is an add-on to all versions of SOLIDWORKS CAD that lets you prepare your designs for manufacturability earlier in the development cycle. Manufacturing tasks that had to wait until a design was complete can now be performed concurrently with the design process.
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 INCLUDES: Automatic Feature Recognition. Automatically recognizes over 20 types of features on SOLIDWORKS part models, reducing programming time by as much as 90% compared to traditional CAM software. Knowledge-Based Machining. 2.5 Axis Milling. CAM Configurations. Assembly Machining.
SOLIDWORKS Machinist Standard provides all the functionality found in SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard plus a Part only modeling environment allowing you to work seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS Part files and import several neutral file formats.
