SOLIDWORKS CAM

SOLIDWORKS CAM uses rules-based machining to enhance the programming process while leveraging tolerances that were assigned to the component. Users will be able to enhance the manufacturing process by capturing company standards, speed up quoting, and test manufacturability of a design earlier in the process.

 

SOLIDWORKS CAM FOR CNC MACHINING

SOLIDWORKS CAM delivers an easy-to-use and fully functional programming experience based on 19 + years of development as a Gold Level Solution Partner. With the programming data stored inside the SOLIDWORKS part or assembly, you can easily manage files and references. Leveraging the SOLIDWORKS part and assembly interface enables you to easily and quickly learn SOLIDWORKS CAM and take advantage of rules-based machining with minimal effort.

SOLIDWORKS CAM STANDARD

 SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard allows users to quickly program individual parts and configurations without leaving the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD environment.

SOLIDWORKS CAM PROFESSIONAL

SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional builds on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard to increase programming capabilities, cut tool costs & reduce machining cycle times.

CAMWORKS

CAMWorks is a more robust CAM software for full 3 axis milling, as well as 4 and 5 axis simultaneous movement.  CAMWorks also has turning, mill-turn, Wire EDM, and Nesting packages.

CAM POST PROCESSORS

Hawk Ridge Systems writes and supports SOLIDWORKS CAM and CAMWorks post processors which enable the programmer to post code from the CAM software to their CNC machine.

SOLIDWORKS CAM FEATURES

SOLIDWORKS CAM combines design and manufacturing in one application with an easy-to-use interface. The result is an intuitive rules-based system that can be leveraged to save time and money while capturing company standards.

  • SIMPLIFIED COLLABORATION

    Simplifies collaboration—single design and programming environment allows easier transition to CAM.

  • CONCURRENT DEVELOPMENT

    Utilizes concurrent development process allowing companies to perform tasks sooner and find problems earlier, making changes less costly.

  • RULES BASED MACHINGING

    Rules-based machining allows new users to adapt to a company’s machining process readily.

  • FEATURE RECOGNITION

    Feature Recognition gives you to full control to define machinable features within the CAD/CAM environment.

SOLIDWORKS CAM Software Features
  • TOLERANCE-BASED MACHINING

    Allows for the best machining strategy and for quickly making adjustments as designs, materials, and tolerances change.

  • HIGH-SPEED MACHINING

    Create toolpaths that lead to shorter cycle times while extending tool life and lowering machine wear.

  • TOOLPATH SIMULATION

    Verify the correct machining strategies and setup information on each component produced.

  • FIXTURES & TOOLING

    Once the fixtures are designed, SOLIDWORKS CAM can automatically adjust toolpaths to avoid collisions with the designed components.

WHY SOLIDWORKS CAM?

While SOLIDWORKS CAM can be used like any other CAM software, SOLIDWORKS CAM is connected to SOLIDWORKS design tools. Its deep integration allows SOLIDWORKS CAM to take advantage of information in your 3D CAD model so it’s easy for your team to make better more informed decisions. Other benefits include:

  • Simplifies collaboration—single design and programming environment allows an easier transition to CAM.
  • Utilizes concurrent development process allowing companies to perform tasks sooner and find problems earlier, making changes less costly.
  • Rules-based machining allows new users to adapt to a company’s machining process readily.
  • Tolerance-Based Machining allows for the best machining strategy and for quickly making adjustments as designs, materials, and tolerances change.
  • Feature Recognition gives you to full control to define machinable features within the CAD/CAM environment.
