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 Introduces Turbo HSR


  Product

SolidCAM 2020 delivers many new features and operations, including the new Turbo HSR operation for the SolidCAM HSM/HSR module. Turbo HSR provides a new Roughing Tool Path engine with true 64-bit capability, among many other enhancements.

SolidCAM 2020 delivers many new features and operations that enhance the CAM software platform more than ever before. In this latest release, SolidCAM’s HSM/HSR module introduces the new Turbo HSR operation

Turbo HSR provides a new Roughing Tool Path engine with true 64-bit capability, among many other enhancements including: 

  • Multicore support
    With a 64-bit calculation engine, Multicore Support increases the speed of calculation as the number of cores increase. Adding ‘Toolpath Caching’ provides even faster recalculation speeds. 

  • Multi-Surface Offset
    Turbo HSR Roughing allows you to define multiple surface offsets. An infinite number of groups can also be created with different surface offsets. This is very useful when machining tools and molds when flat parting surfaces are finished in the roughing stage.  

  • Strategies
    Different machining patterns are available in the new Turbo HSR operation including, ‘Hatch’, ‘Contour’ and ‘Rest Roughing’. 

  • Rest Rough 
    Rest Roughing in Turbo 3D HSR is based on either updated stock or the previous tool that was used. The user can specify the minimum stock thickness, and the tool path is generated above it. Arc fitting in rapid moves provides smooth transitions between passes. 

  • Local Stock Definition 
    In Turbo HSR, local stock can be defined for the operation. The stock definition includes the undercut stock definition. 

  • Fixed Collision Protection 
    Collision is checked against fixtures, using either the Faces or Curves definition. The Fixture definition can be done using Faces, Part Model or Fixture Definition in Machine Setup.   

  • Pre-Drilled Points 
    Pre-drilled holes can now be defined for tool entry. The depth of drilling is recognized and ramping beyond the drilling depth is started automatically. This new feature is very useful for Roughing with non-center cutting tools. 

  • Adaptive Feed Rate 
    The new Adaptive Feed Rate function allows for constant cutting conditions – very important for maximizing tool life during Roughing. 

  • Dynamic Holder Collision 
    Dynamic Holder Checking provides collision free tool paths when using short tools. 

  • Automatic Ramping 
    Automatic Ramping makes the decision of applying Ramp Type easier with a pre-defined fall back sequence in the event that a certain style of ramping is not possible.
