CAMWorks is a 3D feature-based CAM system that optimises Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming and machining. To achieve this level of complex hands-free programming, CAMWorks incorporates intelligent machining through automation.

Feature-based machining reduces programming time by as much as 90% compared to CAM software based on traditional profiles and chains. Strategies for multi-surface features can be stored and reused automatically for multiple rough and finishing operations.

Additional Modules

CAMWorks Nesting

This is an automatic nesting module designed to nest the layouts of SOLIDWORKS parts or assemblies. It is seamlessly integrated within SOLIDWORKS and allows nesting of flat or 3D sheet metal parts or assembly models. CAMWorks Nesting uses NestLib, one of the fastest and most featured automatic true-shape nesting library available in the industry.

ElectrodeWorks – Electrodes for CAMWorks

Optional module used to design electrodes for electrical discharge machining.

CAMWorks VoluMill

Optional module for high-speed milling for 2.5 axis and 3 axis roughing operations. Reduce machining time by as much as 85% and increase tool life by as much as 500%, even in the hardest materials. CAMWorks Volumill creates an ultra-high performance toolpath by using the latest advanced technology to rough mill multi-surface parts.
