SOLIDWORKS CAM is an add-on to all versions of SOLIDWORKS CAD that lets you prepare your designs for manufacturability earlier in the development cycle. Manufacturing tasks that had to wait until a design was complete can now be performed concurrently with the design process.
SOLIDWORKS CAM is an integrated CAM solution available to all SOLIDWORKS licenses on subscription, allowing for 2.5 and simple 3-axis toolpath creation for mill machines. Powered by CAMWorks, the original SOLIDWORKS Gold Partner, SOLIDWORKS CAM offers a similar interface that makes learning easy.
With a common platform and a simpler workflow, SOLIDWORKS CAM unites both design and manufacturing teams, resulting in a better CNC experience. This integrated solution also allows for parametric updates to toolpaths and skips timely exports to third party software. SOLIDWORKS CAM learns as you program, allowing you to reuse programming data on previous parts to make future parts programmable with just a few clicks.
SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard lets you quickly program individual milled parts and configurations without leaving the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD environment. You have full access to defining rules within SOLIDWORKS CAM to create and build to your company standards, as well as Tolerance-Based Machining (TBM).
SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional builds on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard with increased programming capabilities. The additional features include High-Speed Machining (HSM), configurations, assembly machining, turning, and 3+2 programming to drive four- and five-axis machines.
