SolidCAM & iMachining - The Unique, Unbeatable CAM Solution that Provides You with the Best Value & Makes You the Most Money!

SolidCAM is the leading Integrated CAM software which runs directly inside SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor, with seamless integration and full tool path associativity.

With the single-window integration, all machining operations can be defined and verified without leaving the parametric CAD assembly environment you're used to.

SolidCAM is the only CAM with the unmatched, patented iMachining solution, and also supports all Milling and Turning functionality, with powerful support for advanced Mill-Turn machines, including Swiss-Type.

SolidCAM's iMachining provide unbelievable savings and increased efficiency in your CNC milling operations. With its patented “morphing spirals”, intelligent island separation and Moating, iMachining provides you with the shortest cycle times in the industry.

iMachining's unbelievable cycle time savings and unmatched tool life extension drastically increases the productivity and profit of your machines.

iMachining's patented Technology Wizard provides automatic, optimal feed and speed values for different materials and CNC machines.

SolidCAM is the perfect solution for your present or future multi-tasking machining needs, with ultimate programming flexibility and configurability. Program multi-turret and spindle operations with full turret synchronization, and watch SolidCAM's simulation of your material being machined in multiple stages, transferring from spindle to spindle without user intervention.

SolidCAM provides powerful, easy-to-learn and use programming tools covering the full range of Mill-Turn machines. Plus, SolidCAM completely supports Swiss-Type Mill-Turn machines including multi-channel synchronization.

Imagine putting the knowledge and experience of hundreds of CAM and CNC masters in the palm of your hand – Experience iMachining Wizard and Tool Path!

  • Saves 70% and More in CNC Machining Time

    Material Removal Rates soar for every tool and insert - even with small diameter tools, you can use a full depth of cut, using the entire length of the tool in one pass. One of a kind optimized tool paths push cutting speed and productivity even further. Get the maximum potential from your existing machines - many of our customers even cancel their new CNC machine orders!

  • Drastically Extends Cutting Tool Life

    Many of our customers tell us they have reduced their replacement tool orders both in frequency and volume - greatly adding to their bottom line.

  • Avoid the Guesswork of Optimum CNC Settings with the Unique iMachining Technology Wizard

    The patented Technology Wizard provides automatically optimized feed & speed values resulting in much shorter and simpler programming procedures for greatly increased programming productivity. Get it right, the first time ... everytime.

SolidCAM 2010 Service Pack 1 released

  Regular News

..simultaneous 5-axis Machining module has been significantly enhanced in SolidCAM 2010

SolidCAM, the leaders in Integrated CAM, announced the release of SP1 of SolidCAM 2010. SolidCAM 2010 provides manufacturing customers with a full and powerful suite of CAM software modules for 2.5D and 3D Milling, High-Speed Machining, Multi-sided Indexial 4/5 axes Milling, Simultaneous 5 axes Milling, Turn-Mill up to 7-axes and WireEDM. SolidCAM 2010 is seamlessly integrated in SolidWorks 2010 and SolidWorks 2011.

A SolidWorks Gold partner for nearly a decade, SolidCAM has been providing the highest level of SolidWorks integration, with seamless single-window integration and full associativity to the SolidWorks design model. All machining operations are defined, calculated and verified in the SolidWorks CAD environment. All geometries used for machining are fully associative with the SolidWorks model - when the geometry of the design is modified, SolidCAM automatically synchronizes all machining operations with the updated geometry, thus ensuring the automatic update of tool paths for CAD revisions.

The tight associativity of SolidCAM and SolidWorks enables the automation of the whole design to manufacturing process. Many companies, that are involved both with design and manufacturing, often have only a few product lines - but with many variations and combinations. SolidCAM’s full associativity leverages SolidWorks configuration management to automatically update the CNC tool paths for the different product variations. SolidCAM thus powers up SolidWorks into the best integrated CAD/CAM solution.

SolidCAM templates, which are being used extensively to automate repetitive CAM programming tasks, are enhanced in the new version. A common geometry for all templates can now be defined and templates can be filtered according to attributes, enabling the user to classify the templates according to operation type.

SolidCAM´s tool table includes now default management for tool feeds and spindle speeds, for different materials and different CNC machines. This enables the manufacturing facility to customize SolidCAM’s tool feeds and spindle speeds for its specific environment.

Important enhancements were introduced in the geometry definition and Drill recognition capabilities. The High-Speed Machining (HSM) module has been further expanded by a new combined strategy for Constant Z and 3D Corner Offset Machining.

The simultaneous 5-axis Machining module has been significantly enhanced in SolidCAM 2010. Besides new sub-operations for Electrode, Cavity, Turbine blade, 4x projection and 3 axis to 5 axis conversion, the new version features an automated 5-axis Drill operation that accelerates the drilling of “Swiss cheese” type of parts. Part makers, who have to drill hundreds of holes from various directions, will benefit significantly by this new feature.

Due to the increasing usage of Multi-tasking CNC machine tools, SolidCAM 2010 has also enhanced considerably the simulation for such kind of machines. SolidCAM 2010 provides a much more detailed simulation of complex Mill-Turn operations, with multiple-turrets and spindles, including collision checking for the tool holders and turning tools, in drum turret and B-axes machines. The post processor development for multi-axes machines has also been significantly simplified.

SolidCAM 2010 supports 64 Bit computing, enabling SolidCAM users to benefit from the large amount of memory available in computers today. The calculation and simulation of large parts is now accelerated using the 64-bit capability.  

Optimized for Windows 7, powered with full 64-bit functionality, multi-core calculation, new Open-GL graphics, this release is a great achievment. With the powerful new features of SolidCAM 2010, we recommend that every SolidCAM customer be sure to be on valid subscription in order to benefit from the advantages of this latest SolidCAM release.
