    The Difference Between SOLIDWORKS CAM and CAMWorks

    March 16, 2021

    One of my favorite things about SOLIDWORKS is being able to take a design from my head to a 3D Model and then from the 3D model into G-Code that can drive a CNC machine. Almost everyone knows that creating 3D models is a core SOLIDWORKS function, but what about programming for a CNC machine?

    Since 2018, SOLIDWORKS CAM and CAMWorks have been an integral part of the SOLIDWORKS design ecosystem, allowing us to use our 3D models to create parts on a CNC machine. Like many products within SOLIDWORKS, there are different packages to fit your needs, whether you're milling, turning or doing advanced machining operations. Keep reading to learn more about our CAM offerings, as well as which package might suit you best.

    How To Set Up Your SOLIDWORKS CAM Tech Database - Video Tutorial

    October 26, 2020

    SOLIDWORKS CAM is a fantastic CNC programming tool included with every seat of SOLIDWORKS on subscription, since the 2018 release. It is powered by CAMWorks and includes the Technology Database (TechDB). The TechDB allows for storing a variety of information for CNC Programming. This includes Tool, Tool Crib, Post Processor, Machine and Strategy information. The TechDB can be leveraged to speed up programming time and reduce errors. This video tutorial series will dive into each of these areas.

    The Top SOLIDWORKS Products for Manufacturing

    July 16, 2019

    With so many software options out there, it’s hard to know which combination is right for your custom manufacturing needs. With the SOLIDWORKS family of integrated products we’re spoiled for choice, but that doesn’t make understanding all the options any easier to someone looking at it for the first time. We’ve taken a look at all the options and put together a summary of what we think is the “ideal” manufacturing bundle. In this blog post, we’ll go over all the top-level benefits for each product and what you’ll be taking with you.

    Shop Collaboration and Communication in the Modern Age

    June 10, 2019

    Manufacturing technology seems to catch on much slower than other technological leaps; it’s 2019 and I still train students every month coming from 2D drafting into the 3D world! Is this because of the companies, the designers, the machinists or none of these? There is a huge difference in how a job shop, or even a large-scale production facility, work versus how we think. We’re going to take a look at this much too common disconnect and what options are out there to improve shop communication and efficiency.

    Concept to Completion with SOLIDWORKS Manufacturing Tools

    June 7, 2019

    SOLIDWORKS is not just a CAD application. The integrated add-ins and supporting applications make it a complete engineering solution. I recently took advantage of these tools to complete a project that has been at the back of my mind for some time. It was a great opportunity to show how to use the SOLIDWORKS integrated platform from design all the way through the manufacturing and post-manufacturing process.
