MecSoft Corporation has published a comprehensive infographic entitled “The Ins & Outs of CAM” to provide readers with a basic understanding of computer-aided manufacturing, CAM.
With this infographic, MecSoft Corporation provides information on many aspects of CAM. To accurately inform readers on CAM, the infographic covers a definition of CAM, how it is used with other technologies, the processes involved, and the benefits of using it.
CAM, the acronym for computer-aided manufacturing, is the process of using software to simplify and automate CNC machining and 3D printing. The software program takes the design geometry to create instructions which are sent to an automated machine tool or 3D printer. The automated device then follows these programmed instructions to create the design. While subtractive manufacturing eliminates material from the workpiece by cutting and shaping it, additive manufacturing adds material to the design through 3D printing.
CAM offers many unique advantages to users including an improvement in efficiency and accuracy. Design changes can be implemented easily and manufacturing updated quickly. Utilized by a variety of industries, CAM allows complex designs to be produced as well as prototypes to be developed before production.
