“He’s a designer, so he shouldn’t touch CAM, right?” Wrong—and here’s why.

CAD and CAM are so frequently lumped together that many people outside our industry have a difficult time separating the two. “CAD/CAM” has become a single catchall phrase for two very different processes; modeling and machining a part. That line becomes even more blurred with the powerful integrated CAM software available to today’s SolidWorks users.


Some companies struggle to separate the two. They may feel their designers shouldn’t touch CAM either because they won’t get anything out of it or they’ll never be able to program correctly.


That train of thought is understandable. It might be time to reconsider those two preconceptions.

“CAM doesn’t do my designer any good.”


A good SolidWorks user can create some amazing designs, and fast. What benefit could there be from letting them use CAM in any way?


Talk to any machinist and they’ll let you know that one of the most common issues in their workflow is the ability to manufacture the part efficiently due to a poor design. They may receive a part or assembly and realize that some small component of if makes the machining job either dramatically more difficult or next to impossible. In many cases machinability issues like this can be corrected with small cosmetic or internal changes to a part that won’t impact the look or function but will yield a part that is faster and easier to cut and more over SolidWorks DFM Express (Design for Manufacturability) Tool helps Designers to predict design flaws in subject to Manufacturability.

By letting your designer use – even just “play” with – your integrated CAM software you increase the likelihood that those small changes and tweaks will be made during design. With a little familiarity and knowledge, the designer can much more easily understand the manufacturing issues thus minimizing rev changes saving time and money (and save that back-and-forth with the shop that can easily escalate time and costs).


“My designer doesn’t know how to machine.”


This is certainly often true. Many companies rightly prefer to have their designers be expert designers, and have their programmers be expert machinists. They are both different disciplines that require their own skills.

Fortunately, integrated CAM lets you make the most of your in-house machining expertise in ways that help your experts in both areas.

CNC Software has released the latest version of Mastercam for SolidWorks product. The most awaited Mastercam Turning operation is also now available with the latest version of Mastercam X7 for SolidWorks. Mastercam for SolidWorks will support SolidWorks 2010 and above version.


The biggest advantage of Mastercam for SolidWorks is that it enables the designer to complete CAD & CAM in the same SolidWorks window which in turn reduces man power and cycle time.

Arguably the biggest addition however is the addition of many Mastercam Lathe toolpaths including standard rough & canned rough, finish & canned finish, groove & canned groove, thread, plunge/turn, drill/tap and more.

Mastercam X7 for SolidWorks features new products and new functionality focused on delivering speed and efficiency for your machining jobs. Many of the enhancements seen in Mastercam X7 Mill have been brought over to Mastercam for SolidWorks such as the new Mastercam Simulator, new Tool Manager and stock model improvements including multi-core processing for all toolpaths.

The release can be found on CNC Software’s download page.

For any technical clarification or demo you can contact SIMTEK, authorized dealer for Mastercam. The greater advantage is that SIMTEK being Professional Channel Partner for SolidWorks has given CAM solution to many of SolidWorks Customer through Mastercam for SolidWorks Software.
