SolidCAM is the de-facto standard Gold-Certified integrated CAM-Engine for SOLIDWORKS. SolidCAM provides seamless, single-window integration and full associativity to the SOLIDWORKS design model. All machining operations are defined, calculated and verified, without leaving the SOLIDWORKS window.
SolidCAM is widely used in the mechanical manufacturing, electronics, medical, consumer products, machine design, automotive and aerospace industries, as well as in mold and die and rapid prototyping shops.
Today successful manufacturing companies are using integrated CAD/CAM systems to get to market faster and reduce costs. With SolidCAM’s seamless single-window integration in SOLIDWORKS, organization can reap the benefits of the integrated SOLIDWORKS and SolidCAM solution. SOLIDWORKS and SolidCAM is the ‘Dream-Team’ for design and manufacturing.
SolidCAM provides seamless single-window integration and full associativity with the SOLIDWORKS design model, so you can program your CNC’s directly inside SOLIDWORKS and even watch your toolpaths automatically update when the design model changes. With modules covering lathes, 2.5D milling machines, all the way up to 5-axis and even the most complex Millturns, you simply won’t outgrow SolidCAM. It will be the last CAM software you will ever have to purchase.
- Avoid continuous repositioning and time-consuming air cutting movements like insertion, retraction and withdrawing
- The most efficient toolpaths for the best cycle times, part quality, and surface finishes
- Parametric design changes flow right to your machine as design changes automatically update toolpath
- SolidCAM is scalable to run your existing machines as well as future machines
- Know exactly how your programs will cut every step of the way before risking expensive tooling and machines
- Higher metal removal rates and also reduced load and wear on the tools and CNC machines
Complete SOLIDWORKS Integration
SolidCAM’s CAM software, for all CNC applications, is seamlessly integrated in SOLIDWORKS and with full toolpath associativity to the SOLIDWORKS model.
Complete CNC machining Intelligent System
iMachining is the complete CNC machining intelligent system that adjusts automatically to material, geometry, cutters, and CNC machine tool capability, to lead the user through the entire operation, eliminating the trial and error approach (and endless broken cutters) of adjusting and optimizing parameters at the CNC machine.
Complete simulation of part, stock, tooling, cutters, and machine
SolidCAM’s iMachining delivers an entirely new level of metal cutting performance that enables every CAM software user to bring 21st century technology right into every machine shop, for nearly all types of parts, CNC machines, cutters and materials.
Composite Tools in Turning
Enables the definition of turning tools in same style as tool catalog definition.
With the Wizard, iMachining uses the tool data, together with geometry, material and CNC machine properties, to generate smooth morphing spiral toolpaths, that ensure constant cutting force on the tool. The calculated CNC-programs avoid continuous repositioning and time-consuming air cutting movements like insertion, retraction and withdrawing.
