We are currently looking at getting CAM software for solidworks. Being new to the market I am chasing some unbiased opinions of some of the CAM solutions available ie. SolidCAM, HSMWorks, MasterCAM, CAMwork etc. We have several CNC lathes and milling machines in our workshop including a 5 axis MAZAK J-300 and a HAAS VMC. Projects we are working on include milling on many faces on all 5 axis, however we do not forsee the need for simultanious 5 axis milling.


I have dowloaded and tried HSMExpress and a solidCAM trial and am leaning towards HSMWorks at this stage as it seems more user friendly. I would appreciate the feedback of someone who has experience with CAM sofware for solidworks.


Thanks in advance.
