SOLIDWORKS® CAM and CAM PRO offer cutting-edge technologies for tolerance-focused machining with the capability to help your team develop manufacturing strategies, production mechanics configurations and more.

State-Of-The-Art Machining Capacities Integrated Seamlessly In SOLIDWORKS.

Whether you need fully automated and customized machining capabilities with turning and multi-axis options, or you need a simple solution to improve your shop floor workflow, we have a solution to help.

What’s New in


SOLIDWORKS CAM allows you to integrate design and manufacturing processes under one system to evaluate designs earlier in the process to avoid unexpected costs and delays in finishing products on time.

It leverages 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. Best of all, SOLIDWORKS CAM is now available as an add-in to ALL versions of SOLIDWORKS and includes “High-Speed Machining” capabilities.


SOLIDWORKS CAM Gives You The Ability To:

  • Recognize certain types of geometry not only as CAD features, but to understand how much those features will be manufactured, and even how it will cost to manufacture
  • Read tolerances and surface finishes and make decisions about how to manufacture the product
  • Automatically apply your preferred machining strategies so that the manufacturing process can not only be faster, but also more standardized
  • Automate quoting and compare it to traditional methods to ensure all aspects of the part are accounted for ahead of time


SOLIDWORKS CAM Machining Integration & Strategies

SOLIDWORKS CAM is a big part of the SOLIDWORKS ecosystem with a lot of great tools. Fully integrated, knowledge based machining using operations and strategies based on your own best practices make SOLIDWORKS CAM a great software. Let’s take a look at the Standard and Professional CAM packages.

    Providing State-Of-The-Art Machining Capabilities Seamlessly Integrated Into SOLIDWORKS

    CAMWorks is an intuitive, feature-based CAM software that uses best-in-class technologies and adaptable automation tools to maximize the efficiency of CNC machining to help increase productivity.

      Integrate Seamlessly Within SOLIDWORKS

      CAMWorks is the First SOLIDWORKS® Certified Gold Product for Manufacturing/CAM Software seamlessly integrated into the design software.

      Faster Cycle Times

      Ultra High Performance Toolpath Engine for 2.5 and 3 Axis Roughing Operations inside CAMWorks

      Reduce Setup Time

      Check G-code with 1 click. The dry-run validations are completely eliminated with CAMWorks Virtual Machine software.

      Tolerance-Based Machining

      With CAMWorks implementing tolerance-based machining, the manual activities associated by preparing parts with near tolerances, asymmetric tolerances, surface finishes and other drawing annotations for the century of toolpaths will now be a thing of the past.
