SOLIDWORKS CAM Powered by CAMWorks® is an integrated 2.5-axis milling and 2-axis lathe programming solution by SOLIDWORKS. By utilizing the emerging technologies of Model-Based Definition and Knowledge-Based Machining, SOLIDWORKS CAM can rapidly transform your Design to Manufacturing process by improving communication, reducing errors, reducing cycle times, and increasing your product quality. It leverages the rich content in the 3D CAD model to speed up product development and reduce error-prone, time-consuming, repetitive manual steps in the current development process, like programming CNC machines. Knowledge-Based Machining (KBM) is the foundation for streamlining the programming process, learning as you program which frees up your time to focus on the critical areas of the components. SOLIDWORKS CAM is 2.5 axis milling and turning. 2.5 axis will also cover Laser, Waterjet, and Plasma cutting.
