SOLIDWORKS Machinist Professional provides SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional capabilities with SOLIDWORKS Parts and Assemblies to allow the user the ability to import and design fixtures and other manufacturing components used in the machining process. By using Assembly mode in SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional, automatic toolpath clipping can be used to ensure your programs do not collide with custom fixtures or vises.
Need to understand the differences between SOLIDWORKS Machinist Standard and Professional, or how it compares to SOLIDWORKS CAM packages? See our SOLIDWORKS CAM & SOLIDWORKS Machinist Matrix or check out our CAM Video & Resource Library.
Once the fixtures are designed, SOLIDWORKS Machinist Professional can automatically adjust toolpaths to avoid collisions with the designed components.
SOLIDWORKS Machinist Professional offers the addition features of machining and modeling, turning and 3+2, HSM and configuration programming to drive four and five-axis machines. These additions allow users to define fixtures as well as leverage assembly configurations to program similar parts quickly.
