SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional includes time-saving and productivity tools, such as machining part families using CAM Configurations, programming SOLIDWORKS Assemblies and 2.5 Axis Volumill. Programming capabilities are extended to include 4 and 5 axis Mills and CNC Lathes.
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.
Capture and reuse your programmers’ best practices, reducing programming time by as much as 80% and provide a database to store employee knowledge.
2.5 Axis Milling
Program prismatic features using 2.5 axis milling operations such as Roughing, Finishing, Face Milling, Thread milling and single point (Drilling, Boring, Reaming, & Tapping) cycles.
If you use multiple configurations in SOLIDWORKS for creating a part family, minimize your programming time by copying program from one configuration to the next. Simplify file management by programming multiple operations for different CNC machines in one file.
Run multiple parts in one program, whether you’re running a Vertical/Horizontal Machining Center or a Router, Plasma or Laser. Import programs from part files to the assembly to streamline production and use fixture avoidance to produce collision free programs.
2.5 Axis Premium
Program 3D contoured surfaces using an Area Clearance roughing operation, and Z-Level and Flat Area finishing operations.
Tolerance Based Machining
Utilize SOLIDWORKS Model Based Definition (MBD) dimensions and tolerances to automatically adjust machining strategies and program parts quicker and within specification.
SOLIDWORKS CAM CNC Editor
Edit, backplot and transfer your code to the CNC
4th & 5th Axis Indexing/Positioning
SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional will automatically calculate the indexing angles when machining multiple setups. Optimize your programs to minimize setup times and reduce tool changes whether you’re programming for a tombstone, a trunnion, or a gantry 5 axis machine.
2.5 Axis Volumill
Optimize tool engagement and minimize tool wear using Volumill high feed/speed toolpath whilst reducing cycle times by up to 80%.
Program your 2 axis CNC lathe quickly and easily using Automatic Feature Recognition to find face, OD & ID features, grooves and cutoffs. Use Knowledge-Based Machining to intelligently adjust strategies based on your stock material, whether you’re using bar or tube stock, feature type and part size.
