SolidCAM for Education in the US & CANADA

SolidCAM is a huge believer in education, especially in STEM Education, (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). If your school has a Technology or Engineering program, a Robotics’ Team, Race Team, Machine Shop or classes offering CNC machining, please give me a call. We would love to help.

We currently have over 400 schools throughout the United States and Canada using SolidCAM software in their classrooms. So please let us help your school. I am dedicated to assist you in any way. I can point you to our fast-growing library of EDU teaching aids, as well as, many other great resources. We have a SolidCAM Curriculum that has everything you will need to teach SolidCAM easily and successfully to your students. We have Step-by-Step Interactive Guides. Or, if you need any technical assistance, connect you to our excellent Support Team. Our dedicated team of machinists are available to answer any questions you may have, get your machines up and cutting and treat you exactly as a valued customer. They can also be contacted by calling 866.975.1115 (ext. 2) or through our eSupport System.

Ryerson Formula Racing (RFR) is an engineering design team of 40+ students that annually designs and builds a formula style race car. RFR participates in two major competitions, FSAE Michigan and FSAE Formula North (Barrie). Last year, we were fortunate enough to design and compete at FSAE Michigan with great vigor and hard work, to achieve an overall rank of 28th out of over 120 teams. Participating in this competition gives members of RFR the opportunity to learn invaluable skills including communication, team work, and time management. Ryerson Formula Racing would like to thank SolidCAM for their generous support. We would not be able to build a manufacturable and reliable vehicle without their support.

SolidCAM was an EASY add-on to our SolidWorks suite and was quite effortless to pick up. When teaching students how to use it, it was immensely intuitive with identifying tooling parameters and being able to visually examine how they affected your machining simulations. Their customer service representatives were always there to help me if I had any technical problems, as well, their technical staff worked tirelessly to renew my licenses to get us up and running again. They offer great post-processor support, created a PERFECT post for us to work with their software, and they did it all with haste. As great as the customer service was though, their program was even better. I've taught other CAM modules to students before, but nothing was as easy to pick up as SolidCAM has proven to be. Their tutorial modules are SO helpful and are efficient in doing multiple operations within a single CAM part. It was overall a great experience, and the more I use this software; the more I want to KEEP using it. It's a great tool and a powerful CAM software.

We are very excited to be adopting SolidCAM as our flagship manufacturing software to go with SOLIDWORKS. I have been watching iMachining related videos on your website and got thrilled with its ease of use and the savings it gives way to. SolidCAM is the must-have working skill for our students to land their dream job…

It’s been a great move for us to adopt SolidCAM into our mechanical engineering curriculum. The support from the SolidCAM team has been excellent, and software is easy to learn. I like how it interfaces seamlessly with SolidWorks, a program that our students are already familiar with. I found that I was able to spend more time on the specifics of machining basics rather than have to spend an entire semester trying to learn another software package. Keep it up!"
