CNC Machining and Milling


Solid Edge CAM Pro provides you with the right tools to manufacture today’s products.

Solid Edge CAM Pro provides comprehensive solutions for machine tool programming, from simple NC programming to high-speed and multi-axis machining, enabling you to address all types of CNC machining requirements.

Solid Edge CAM Pro offers advanced machining capabilities such as adaptive and feature based machining, smart pencil milling, and enhanced roughing routines. Toolpaths are associative to the Solid Edge parts and assemblies so the toolpaths can be quickly updated to incorporate any design changes.


Experience a complete manufacturing solution

Solid Edge CAM Pro provides supporting CNC machining and milling functions, including translators, assembly modeling, model editing, visualization, verification, post processing and shop documentation.


Full range of turning tool paths, including teach-mode and other manual methods for fine control.

2.5 Axis Milling

Roughing, re-roughing, facing, z-level finishing, and hole-making methods including manual positioning and feature based automation.

3 Axis Milling

Extensive, high-speed capable, fixed axis cutting capabilities for complex surfaces, including raster, offset, adaptive clearance tool paths, and interpolated patterns, with steep/non-steep recognition, valley rest milling, and facet machining.

5 Axis Milling

Extensive capabilities for simultaneous multi-axis cutting of complex surfaces, including both automatic and manual methods, multiple drive options and a wide variety of tool axis control.

Machine Simulation

A complete kinematic machine environment for visualizing complex motion, including g-code level simulation of collision checking and multi-channel synchronization for the most accurate results.

Feature-Based Machining

Capabilities to create and modify rules-driven automation processes and feature geometry definitions in the Machining Knowledge Editor. Feature based machining allows the built-in feature recognition engine to analyze prismatic shapes and quickly create NC strategies to machine those shapes–all automatically.

In addition to the 2.5-axis milling capabilities included with Solid Edge Classic, Foundation, and Premium active maintenance contracts, CAM Pro is available in 2.5-axis, 3-axis, and 5-axis bundles. These configurations along with numerous add-on functionalities allow users to customize the right-sized solution to best meet their individual manufacturing needs.

CAD Neutral

Solid Edge CAM Pro is designed to be used independently of any specific CAD system. It has key industry translators for data import.

Integrated with Solid Edge

Solid Edge CAM Pro is also available for integrated use with Solid Edge.
