A Complete Guide to Cam Software
In the 1950s, before the CNC (computer numerical control) was introduced by John T. Parsons, a lot of machinists underwent a lot of training and practice in ways of learning new skills to operate the machines. Being a machinist back then was a big job, as any person on their own had tasks dealing with building parts manually, interpretation of blueprints, the defining of speed, and tool identifying. There have been many changes since CAM software and CNC machines were introduced. In a world full of physical stuff, whether that is places, products, or parts, CAM makes it all possible. CAM is what gives the horsepower to a car and the power of flight to airplanes.
What is CAM Software?
- A machine that can make a finished product from a raw material
- Software that will tell a machine how to make a product by generating toolpaths
- Post processing that converts a toolpath into a language for machines to understand
