    Compatible CAM Extensions for Solidworks

    Now that I have some experience with SW, I need to create toolpaths for CNC machining (milling). Are there any CAM modules that integration with SW and allow for an easy learning curve? All suggestions are appreciated!

    2.5-axis CAM is built into SOLIDWORKS. Are you running SOLIDWORKS Education Premium 2019-2020? If so, you can open that module following these instructions: https://youtu.be/Dti5zbcJ5fI

    Thank you Cory. I found the add-in that you mentioned and learning how to use it. I am also trying out the BobCAD-CAM 3-axis Solidworks add-in. Very powerful tools - I hope that the partnership between EAA and Solidworks will be ongoing, it is certainly a valuable benefit. --Rob
