The CAD/CAM Guide to Assembly Drawings

If you’re an inventor, a designer, an engineer or a manufacturer, then it’s likely that you need assembly drawings.

An assembly drawing is necessary for any product, design or invention that has more than one part:  From computers to aircraft, lawnmowers to heavy machinery, skate boards to baby carriages – they all need assembly drawings.

Some assembly drawings are simple (think about the last piece of IKEA furniture you purchased and assembled).  Some assembly drawings are complex (like the motor for your automobile.)  Assembly drawings all have these things in common:

The Many Uses of CAD CAM Software

The Many Uses of CAD CAM Software

 Before there was CAD/CAM, there were pencils and paper…in other words, all designing and prototyping was done manually.  This meant that designs were slow to be developed and the development of a prototype could be very tedious.  Needless to say, this manual process was also loaded with costly trial and error.  CAD/CAM software and technologies have made the whole design, development, prototype process easy, faster, and most certainly less costly.   Now, the design problems can be worked out during the design process.  This is especially true with 3D CAD, where structures and products can actually be built and tested in a virtual design.  For all of these reasons, the traditional “drawing board” has pretty much gone the way of the Model T Ford.  (Although, if we really wanted to we could design a Model T using CAD, and even construct a virtual 3D model.)

What Is CAD/CAM?

What Is CAD/CAM? 

By definition, CAD /CAM is an acronym standing for Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing.  By implication, CAD/CAM controls both the design phase of a product and the manufacturing process.  This is true because the CAD program that is used to design the product can also be used to control the CNC machines that are used to  manufacture the product.
