SolidWorks CAM Meets Tormach Machines

Over the years, we’ve developed a number of awesome relationships with various vendors, organizations, and YouTubers. Every partnership has helped us further our goal of enabling the ideas of our customers, which is why from February 4 to 7 we’ll be showcasing our products at SolidWorks World in Los Angeles.

SolidWorks 2018 now features a CAM function, which we’re proud to say was prototyped on our mills, and we’ll be demonstrating it in a manufacturing work cell during the show.

The work cell will feature a number of machines, including our PCNC 440, which will be engraving the event’s insignia. Since the PCNC 440 is capable of so much more, we’ll also be cutting demo parts in a booth just down the hall from the work cell.

While SolidWorks is predominantly known as CAD and modeling software, the addition of CAM allows users better design for manufacturing. Design for manufacturing is a growing challenge, as CAD software is becoming easier to navigate, but machine tool experience is often limited.

That’s why we’re excited over our new SolidWorks partnership. In addition to our other CAM partnerships with Autodesk Fusion 360 and SprutCAM, this partnership helps us make our machines tools even more accessible, which is what we’re all about here at Tormach!
