The definitive 3D CAD and CAM Bundle from SOLIDWORKS
SOLIDWORKS® Machinist is a 2.5-axis milling and turning solution powered by CAMWorks®. SOLIDWORKS Machinist offers 3+2 machining as well as full support for configurations, parts and assembly machining workflows.
The foundation of SOLIDWORKS Machinist is rules-based machining, where you can teach the system what standard machining strategies are vital to them. These rules can then be automatically applied based on the material type and geometry of the feature. Leveraging the SOLIDWORKS part and assembly interface allows you to quickly learn SOLIDWORKS Machinist and take advantage of rules-based machining with minimal effort.
SOLIDWORKS Machinist delivers an easy-to-use and fully functional programming experience. The SOLIDWORKS Machinist bundles provide the user with two versions based on their programming workflow.
The SOLIDWORKS Machinist bundles focus on allowing programmers to import and create 3D data used in the manufacturing process. SOLIDWORKS Machinist is available as individual seats. These seats are not compatible with a network or a SOLIDWORKS Network License (SNL).
SOLIDWORKS Machinist Features
Combines design and manufacturing in one application with an easy-to-use interface
SOLIDWORKS Machinist uses rules-based machining to enhance the programming process in the same way rules based design helped to speed up the drawing and design process.
By using rules-based machining, your business can automatically apply standard strategies to determine how long it will take to make a part and if it could easily be machined.
Design & Manufacturing
SOLIDWORKS Machinist combines design and manufacturing in one application with an easy-to-use interface. The result is an intuitive rules-based system that can be leveraged to save time and money while capturing company standards.
Assigning machining strategies based on design tolerances, reduces errors and improve quality throughout the machining process.
3 Axis Milling
SOLIDWORKS Machinist includes 3 axis milling routines to machine complex, contoured surfaces routinely encountered in mold/tool making and aerospace applications.
SOLIDWORKS can employ a machining technique where a three-axis milling program is executed with the cutting tool locked in a tilted position using the five-axis machine's two rotational axes.

SOLIDWORKS Machinist Benefits
Seamless integration of 3D design and Manufacturing
A single design and programming environment allows a smoother transition to CAM. Tasks that used to have to wait until engineering was complete can now occur in parallel with the design. The ability to save configurations independently within SOLIDWORKS Machinist allows users the freedom to create several part operations between different machines.
Easier manufacturing checks
Rules-Based Machining automatically makes decisions based on geometry and standards, enabling companies to determine manufacturability and perform tasks sooner. Automatic Feature Recognition enables users to find problems earlier.
Easily standardizes processes
Tolerance-Based Machining automatically reads tolerances defined by SOLIDWORKS MBD to provide the best machining strategy and updates machining strategies as designs, materials and tolerances change.
