The product comes with basic 2D milling and drilling functionality. So it will be useful on prismatic parts. It could be a good resource for people new to CAM or those whose CAM needs aren’t too fancy. A good place to start learning would be these tutorials.

Just like the paid version Delcam for SolidWorks EXPRESS is an add-in to SolidWorks and maintains associativity with the SolidWorks model. So when you make changes in the model the tool paths are adjusted automatically.

This video does a decent job explaining the capabilities of the free product.

    I want to know how much money does SW give Delcam.

    Not as good as it sounds. SW2012 and later, valid for 12 months only and then to update next version. Probably doesnt have a future come Catia lite…. 🙁

  • I wish SolidEdge will have something like this 🙁
