CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing)


Computer Aided Design(CAD) involves the use of computers to generate design drawings. CAD enables
the designer to quickly produce very accurate and realistic images of products to
be manufactured.

Computer Aided Manufacturing(CAM) is a system of automatically producing
finished products by using computer controlled machines. CAD and
CAM work together in that the digital model or drawing generated in CAD is inputted to the
CAM software package. The CAM software generates the cutting data to be sent to the CNC Machine.
