SOLIDWORKS CAM uses rules-based machining to enhance the programming process in the same way rules-based design helped to speed up the drawing and design process. Rules-based machining leverages tolerances that have been assigned to each component, allowing users to focus on the critical areas of making a part rather than touching every feature that needs to be machined. With SOLIDWORKS CAM, you will be able to enhance your manufacturing process by capturing company standards, speed up quoting, and test manufacturability of a design earlier in the process. By using rules-based machining, your business can automatically apply standard strategies to determine how long it will take to make a part and if it could easily be machined. This automation will allow you to make decisions faster and with more confidence.
SOLIDWORKS CAM combines design and manufacturing in one application with an easy-to-use interface. The result is an intuitive rules-based system that can be leveraged to save time and money while capturing company standards. Assigning machining strategies based on design tolerances, reduces errors and improve quality throughout the machining process.
