Increase knowledge & improve skills

This course teaches you how to use the SOLIDWORKS CAM software to generate, modify, and post process 2.5 axis milling toolpaths used for the machining of SOLIDWORKS part files.

This course offers two modules consisting of SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard Essentials and SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional training. Attending only one of the modules is possible. 

Learn more about SOLIDWORKS CAM, which is is a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software that integrates with SOLIDWORKS to provide a seamless design-to-manufacturing solution. SOLIDWORKS CAM allows users to program and simulate the machining process directly within SOLIDWORKS, reducing the need for exporting designs to separate CAM software.
