SOLIDWORKS CAM and CAMWorks Tutorial - An Introduction to Generating CNC Code within SOLIDWORKS

In this video, we take a look at the step by step process to generate your first CNC code using SOLIDWORKS CAM or CAMWorks. We cover the basic layout of the user interface, setting up the machine, stock, and coordinate system, generating setups, features, and operations automatically using Automatic Feature Recognition and the built in strategies, creating features and operations manually using Interactive Feature Recognition, running toolpath simulations, making adjustments to operation parameters, and post processing the g-code. This is intended as a primer for beginners before taking one of our instructor led courses.
