CAM integrated in CAD: hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS
SOLIDWORKS – the 3D CAD software – and hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS – the CAM program as a powerful CAD integration – jointly speed up design and manufacturing processes. This ensures products reach the market faster.
From the drawing board to computer-aided design: The CAD program for computer-aided drafting, design and documentation is a well-established standard in modern manufacturing. 3D CAD solutions from SOLIDWORKS offer powerful design functions that help users to achieve a high level of productivity. Companies from all industries benefit from faster product development, reduced production costs and improved product quality and reliability.
hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS CAM software
hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS had to undergo a multi-step certification process. Only after this, could the CAM system be certified for SOLIDWORKS as a ‘Gold’ product by Dassault Systèmes. This certifies that the CAM software is perfectly integrated in the SOLIDWORKS CAD software. Besides this integration, hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS also fulfils the highest requirements regarding reliability and user-friendliness. This is proven by the successful use of the CAM solution by numerous SOLIDWORKS reference customers.
- Direct integration of hyperMILL® in SOLIDWORKS, so-called one-window integration. The user no longer needs to leave SOLIDWORKS for CAM programming
- One database: convenient programming on parametric and associative SOLIDWORKS model data
- Trusted user interface with familiar look and feel: easy to learn and fast access to CAD functionalities
- Working in single part mode and assembly mode is possible
- Powerful CAM strategies for every requirement
- The world’s leading 5-axis technology
- Certified Gold partner since 2006

Dassault Systèmes has certified hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS as a ‘Gold’ product. This is proof of the program’s perfect integration, quality and interoperability. The hyperMILL® user interface is fully integrated in SOLIDWORKS. The CAM data is associatively linked with the geometric data of SOLIDWORKS.
Integration facilitates continuous processes with a single database. Both the CAD and CAM systems access the same data model. This prevents data import problems as well as read/write errors.
hyperMILL® for SOLIDWORKS allows the user to work in both single part mode and assembly mode. Clamps and holders are taken into account during collision checking and the hyperMILL® data is saved together with the relevant machining group.
The feature technology provided by hyperMILL® allows geometries from the CAD system to be used for CAM programming. For example, holes, threads and pockets can be detected on solid and face models thanks to automatic feature recognition. Furthermore, machining strategies and tools can be linked with features in technology macros and saved in a technology database.
From 2.5D, 3D, HSC/HPC and 5-axis milling through to mill turning: hyperMILL® CAM software has an extensive range of CAM strategies at its disposal.
