Seamless integration of 3D design
and Manufacturing

SOLIDWORKS CAM delivers an easy-to-use and fully functional programming experience based on 19 + years of development as a Gold Level Solution Partner. With the programming data stored inside the SOLIDWORKS part or assembly, you can easily manage files and references. Leveraging the SOLIDWORKS part and assembly interface enables you to easily and quickly learn SOLIDWORKS CAM and take advantage of rules-based machining with minimal effort.


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.


Key Benefits:

Ease of Use and Collaboration

Easy to learn, communication, collaboration, training, access

Rules Based Machining

Easily find and leverage existing engineering data to create new designs and speed up product development

Tolerance Based Machining

Create production-ready 2D drawings that communicate how your design should be manufactured and assembled

Easy to Manage Data

  • Data is stored in the part of assembly file
  • Only external file is the g-code posted file that is specific to CNC machine.
