CAD CAM Design Using 3D Models
CAD CAM technology is used to design and to manufacture products. While the CAD software is confined to design only, CAD CAM software not only designs, but also programs CNC manufacturing processes. Today, the CAD design portion is often done using 3D models and assemblies. 3D models let designers try the design out virtually in order to ensure that it works before the CNC machine is programmed to create the initial prototype.
