One of the most exciting announcements at last year’s Solid Edge University event was the introduction of CAMWorks for Solid Edge 2014 from our technology partner Geometric Limited. We have had several strong CAM partners for Solid Edge over the years and of course we have our own CAM Express solution, but CAMWorks is the first solution to run embedded in Solid Edge. You can find an excellent series of “how-to” articles on CAMWorks from one of our CAM experts Jim Wright on our Solid Edge community site. Jim’s most recent articles discuss new mill-turn machining capabilities and how to machine multiple components.
At this year’s Solid Edge University I was able to talk with Nishant Saini, Geometric’s Director of Product Sales and Marketing about CAMWorks for Solid Edge. We touched on the interest from existing Solid Edge users, the new assembly and 5-axis machining capabilities, and a recent case study from an architectural metal fabricator and Solid Edge user Kern/Rockenfield Inc.
