Evaluate Integrated CAM Solutions

Created by: SOLIDWORKS 

The CAD/CAM Slam series will help you evaluate integrated CAM solutions for SolidWorks so you can dramatically improve communication between design and manufacturing, eliminate translation/rebuild issues, shorten delivery times with concurrent design and manufacturing, and reduce rework and scrap for better quality manufactured parts.

CAMWorks, from Geometric Technologies, Inc., was the first fully integrated computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) solution designed exclusively to operate in SolidWorks and the first to offer knowledge-based, feature recognition, and associative machining capabilities within SolidWorks.

CAMWorks uses the same SolidWorks geometry to generate toolpaths to ensure the part you machine is the same part you've modeled. Toolpath simulation allows users to compare "as designed" parts to "as machined" parts. The part model-to-toolpath associativity in CAMWorks increases machining productivity and lowers manufacturing costs by eliminating time-consuming CAM system rework due to design updates.

CAMWorks machining modules include: 2½ Axis Mill, 3 Axis Mill, Turning, Mill-Turn with 5 Axis Simultaneous Machining Support, 4/5 Axis Simultaneous Machining, and Wire EDM.
