In Module 7 of HawkLive, Applications Engineer Ryan Navarro will introduce a brand new product to the SOLIDWORKS Suite: SOLIDWORKS CAM 2018. SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard is available to every SOLIDWORKS user on active subscription, and SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional is an affordable upgrade for more complex machining tasks.
SOLIDWORKS 2018 introduces a new integrated CAM package, SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional, that can be purchased as an additional product from SOLIDWORKS. This package allows you to program parts for CNC manufacturing including a wide range of milling and turning operations, high-speed material removal to speed up production on the shop floor and fixture avoidance to prevent costly machine crashes.
With SOLIDWORKS CAM, you will be able to enhance your manufacturing process by capturing company standards, speed up quoting and test manufacturability of a design earlier in the process. By using rules based machining, your company can automatically apply standard strategies to determine how long it will take to make a part and if it could easily be machined. This automation will allow you make decisions faster and with more confidence. But best of all, SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard is available in ALL levels of SOLIDWORKS software! -- Presented by Tim Fulton and Holly Cheek Video by Amy Surprenant
