SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard vs. SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional
This video explains both the SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard and the SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional packages available. Both packages are fully integrated into the SOLIDWORKS interface and provide tools like Knowledge-Based machining, Automatic Feature Recognition, an NC Editor, and so much more.
It uses rules-based machining to enhance the programming process while leveraging tolerances that are assigned to the component. Users can enhance their manufacturing process by capturing company standards, speed up quoting, and test manufacturability of a design earlier in the process.
SOLIDWORKS CAM can be used like any other CAM software with the added bonus that it is already connected to SOLIDWORKS design tools. Its deep integration enables users to take advantage of the information in the 3D CAD model, so it’s easy for the design team to make better and more informed decisions.
