CAD, CAM and Related Software

CAD/CAM Software is used to generate part designs and then CNC machining programs corresponding to part designs. Short for “computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing,” these systems create these programs for CNC machine tools. In general, CAM development has proceeded along two different tracks. Geometry-based CAM systems used in die/mold machining and other applications focus on complex milled geometries. Algorithms provide specific and efficient ways for machining complex geometries with both high precision and long tool life. By contrast, feature-based CAM systems are generally used in the production machining of geometrically simpler components.
