Thank you for installing Tolerance Based Machining!

With the introduction of Tolerance Based Machining by CAMWorks, the manual tasks associated to preparing parts with close tolerances, asymmetric tolerances, surface finishes and other drawing annotations for toolpath generation will now be part of the past. Not only does CAMWorks automatically identify manufacturing features and automatically create toolpaths, CAMWorks will now recognize the tolerances and surface finishes associated with a feature to select the appropriate tools, speeds, feeds, etc… to generate the best toolpath. In addition, the new Tolerance Based Machining automatically adjusts the toolpaths to machine parts to the mean of dimensions with asymmetric tolerances.

  • Reads SOLIDWORKS Dim Expert Dimensions
  • Reads SOLIDWORKS MBD Information
  • Adjusts Asymmetric Tolerances to Mean Values
  • Reads Surface Finish Annotations
  • Selects Tools, Feeds and Speeds based on Dim Expert and MBD
Put simply, this new feature will be a humongous timesaver for machinists and engineers in the throes of designing a product.
