In order to have The Smart Guys® pop in and give the best recommendation, they're going to want to know what your monitor's resolution is, or which monitor you plan to use with the machine. No sense spending all that money on the Ferrari engine to power a Prius... each are good, but it's better to get the right tools for the job.

It is very rare that anyone comes here to the Forum for advice on a workstation, particularly for engineering. We are almost exclusively gamers, and I, for one, am somewhat well prepared to suggest parts for that purpose. I know nothing at all about CAD/CAM software, or whether to emphasize CPU power vs GPU. I can say it would behoove you to have a lot of RAM for faster rendering, and a lghtning-fast M.2 NVMe primary drive for the fastest boot, loading, and processing time for your software. Perhaps more likely a Quadro or Radeon Pro GPU in preference to a gaming GPU, but I'm just guessing on that.

IMHO, you may rely upon advice from the pros at Digital Storm to work toward meeting your requirements without working to upsell you at every turn. I believe they will advise you well as to what parts may work best together at your budget. Good luck.

DS has preconfigured options under Products -> Workstations -> Engineering

Nevertheless, based on requirements and suggestions I found for Solidworks and Cimatron, I came up with this suggestion:

3828521

(Click "Load Config" at the top-right of the Digital Storm website, enter the above configuration number, and click "Load")

Some items, such as storage capacity, may need adjustments if you have further requirements not listed.

As @Cretae mentioned, you can also reach out to Digital Storm's Sales department for recommendations as well.
