CAD/CAM Software

Computer-aided design (CAD) software and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software is used to design and manufacture prototype parts, finished products, and production runs. An integrated CAD/CAM system uses CAD software to design models and assemblies of a product and interface with CAM software that references and applies those models and assemblies created in the CAD software to program specific manufacturing processes, perform functional simulation that optimizes each process step, then drive the machine tools used to produce physical parts from the product designs.

Making it Wrong to Make it Right

With Video

The world of a CAM programmer may seem idyllic: They build toolpath strategies in logical sequences, select cutters from a library, and calculate and simulate results on the monitor. But there are complex challenges when moving from the sterile programming office to the shop floor, where the theoretical process becomes real.
