    This book is written to help you learn the core concepts and steps used to conduct virtual machining using CAMWorks. CAMWorks is a virtual machining tool designed to increase your productivity and efficiency by simulating machining operations on a computer before creating a physical product. CAMWorks is embedded in SOLIDWORKS as a fully integrated module. CAMWorks provides excellent capabilities for machining simulations in a virtual environment. Capabilities in CAMWorks allow you to select CNC machines and tools, extract or create machinable features, define machining operations, and simulate and visualize machining toolpaths.
