Users can now seamlessly integrate design and manufacturing with easy-to-use, world-class CAM technology. SOLIDWORKS CAM uses rules-based machining to enhance the programming process in the same way while leveraging tolerances that were assigned to the component.
SOLIDWORKS CAM STANDARD INCLUDES:
AUTOMATIC FEATURE RECOGNITION
SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard users can eliminate hours of complex programming by interpreting the design of parts through Automatic Feature Recognition for holes, pockets, and boss.
Knowledge-Based Machining (or KBM) is a relatively new term that refers to a CAM software’s ability to make essential knowledge a part of its automation.
The SOLIDWORKS Model-Based Definition (MBD) ensures machining strategies are automatically adjusted based on tolerance specifications.
Rules-Based Machining allows even novice CAM users to get up to speed quickly by automating the tedious and repetitive tasks associated with most mainstream CAM software.
EASY DATA MANAGEMENT
Users can perform all CAM functions and manage the data in one environment where CAM information is stored in the part or assembly file.
OPTIMIZE SETUP AND TOOLING
Reference machine setup specifications such as spindle speed and table size. Assign tooling based on geometry size, material type, and tool crib designation.
