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.
