Introducing CAMWorks 2019

CAMWorks 2019 is the most advanced CAM software available, combining production-proven feature based CAM technology, automatic feature recognition, and rules based machining along with tolerance based machining to leverage MBD and PMI technology to automate Smart Manufacturing for CNC programming – paving the way to advanced digital manufacturing.

NEW! CAMWorks Additive Manufacturing

Program your 3D metal printer and CNC machine all in one easy to use system with full associativity!

  • Powered by Materialise!
  • The only combination additive/subtractive solution for SOLIDWORKS®!
  • Automatic and interactive build supports
  • Fully associative additive and subtractive manufacturing operations

Tolerance Based Machining (TBM)

Automate CNC programming using MBD & PMI data for Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0!
  • TBM now supports Turning and Mill/Turn!
  • Reads GD&T and automatically and selects the correct machining strategy!
  • Fully integrated within CAMWorks
  • Reassign strategies based on TBM settings

 Powerful UX User Improvements

Streamline the CNC programming of SOLIDWORKS® parts & assemblies to reduce delivery time!
  • Display settings for Contain and Avoid areas
  • New advanced toolpath editing UI for milling with a multitude of new features
  • Improved selection of curve features
  • Ability to define tapered shank milling tools

New 3, 4 & 5 Axis Milling Features

Precisely control multi-axis toolpaths, improve tool-life, reduce cycle time, and improve quality!
  • All new 5 axis Swarf Milling functionality!
  • Previous tool option for Area Clear using the new Advanced 3 axis milling
  • Rest machining using Model Offset
  • New functionality to move mill features independent of the solid model

2 & 4 Axis Turning Improvements

Reduce cycle time using multiple tools & turrets, avoid broken tools & scrap parts and improve quality.
  • New simultaneous pinch turning capabilities for rough and finish turning!
  • Simultaneous machining support for up to 4 turrets using the improved Sync Manager

Turn & Mill/Turn Enhancements

Avoid broken tools, get the most from your tooling, and improve quality.
  • Collision checking along the Y axis for turning tools , inserts, and tool holders

 Knowledge Based Machining - TechDB

Capture best practices, reduce programming time standardize to improve quality.

  • Assign default strategies to CNC machines
  • New parameter settings for Advanced 3 axis toolpath generation
  • Ability to assign either the front or rear turret when generating operations

  Automation Enhancements

Automate and better control AFR for machining of complex holes.

  • Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) of user defined multi-stepped holes
  • Change the end conditions of holes using automatic feature recognition

Advanced High Speed Machining

Reduce cycle time by up 80%, increase tool life by 500%, get the most from your tooling!
  • New clearance plane options for 2.5 axis VoluMill toolpaths
  • Tool holder avoidance for 3 axis VoluMill
  • New Zig-zag cut method for rough machining using CAMWorks VoluMill
