Rules-based machining with minimal effort.

SOLIDWORKS CAM uses rules-based machining to enhance the programming process. Rules-based machining follows your company’s best practices established through past programming. By using rules-based machining, coupled with Automatic Feature Recognition, your business can automatically apply standard strategies to estimate machining time and setups required, allowing you to make decisions faster and with more confidence.

SOLIDWORKS CAM combines design and manufacturing in one application with an easy-to-use interface. Designs can be checked for manufacturability earlier in the process, catching costly reworks. Assigning machining strategies based on design tolerances reduces errors and improves quality throughout the machining process. Changes made to the SOLIDWORKS model are recognized by SOLIDWORKS CAM and the programming is automatically adjusted. The result is an intuitive system that can be leveraged to save time and money.
