SOLIDWORKS CAM is an integrated 2.5 & 3 axis CNC milling and 2 axis CNC lathe programming solution powered by CAMWorks.

By utilizing the emerging technologies of Model Based Definition (MBD) and Knowledge Based Machining, SOLIDWORKS CAM can rapidly transform your design-to-manufacturing process by improving communication, reducing errors, reducing cycle times, and benefit.

SOLIDWORKS CAM Software Feature Benefit

Uses tolerances and features in 3D models to automatically create CNC programs.

Single design and programming environment allows easier transition to CAM.

Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) automatically recognizes over 20+ types of prismatic features on native SolidWorks part models, reducing programming time by as much as 90% compared to traditional CAM software.

CAMWorks Virtual Machine performs true G-code machine simulation directly from the G-code used for the CNC machine, eliminating dry runs and set up time.

Includes automatic roughing, finishing, thread milling and single point (drilling, boring, reaming, tapping) cycles.

Allows you to capture and reuse your programmers’ best practices using the patented TechDB, reducing programming time by as much as 80% and provides a company owned database to store employee knowledge and skill.

CAMWorks VoluMill™, the ultra-high-performance tool-path engine allows you to reduce your cycle time by 80% for complex 3D- shapes and prismatic parts. High-Speed Machining creates toolpaths that lead to shorter cycle times while extending tool life by up to 500% and lowering machine wear.

Automatically updates toolpaths to design changes. Utilizes concurrent development process – allowing companies to perform tasks sooner, ­and problems earlier, and reduce rework and scrap.

SOLIDWORKS CAM provides true associative machining – automatically accommodating changes to your part or assembly model, which eliminates time consuming CAM system rework due to design alterations.


CAPABILITIES: Every seat of SOLIDWORKS 2018, SOLIDWORKS 2019 & the upcoming SOLIDWORKS 2020 currently on subscription, includes SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard

Where to get  SOLIDWORKS CAM Post processord ?

SOLIDWORKS CAM® and CAMWorks® use same post-processor to convert virtual information and toolpaths into machine tool specific CNC code or G-code required for CNC machining. Each post processor is designed to generate quality CNC code that meets the requirements of the machine control.

    I have just completed a trial of SprutCAM 14. After exploring and testing many different CAM software packages, I have found SprutCAM to be my personal favourite. I am currently working on prototyping a business idea. The simulation and run time let me decide whether or not the idea is feasible.
