Transcript of CAD/CAM

CAD/CAM BY MAX FROST 2J omputer esign omputer ided ided anufacture Firstly lets look at CAD, short for Computer Aided Design.
What is CAD? Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer technology for the design of objects, real or virtual. Architects, drafters, engineers, and artists use CAD software to create plans and construction drawings of the project they are making or manufacturing. They can either be 2D or 3D. Before the age of computers, drawings and blueprints were drafted by hand. CAD is more efficient because the software records lines. Portions of a drawing can be twisted, stretched, or moved. The picture as a whole will automatically adjust as programmed. CAD (along with CAM) is used to design and develop products.
Examples Include:
What are the uses of CAD? What are the Advantages of CAD? There are many advantages of CAD examples including: Disadvantages However, there are also some disadvantages: Many copies of the same product can be made.
Quicker and easier to use.
More acurate design
Changes and modifications can be easily done
If a computer malfunction takes place, content will be lost.
Need to be trained to use it.
Can be expensive.
If not made properly, the product could be manufactured wrongly. Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is a system of using computer technology to assist a manufacturing process. The CAM system sets the toolpath and executes precision machine operations based on the imported design (using CAD). Some CAM systems bring in additional automation by also keeping track of materials and automating the ordering process. CAD and CAM are linked in the process of manufacturing objects. The computer takes the computer-generated design and feeds it directly into the manufacturing system; the design is then converted into multiple computer-controlled processes, such as drilling or turning. OK, so lets move onto CAM What is CAM? How does it work? How does CAM link with CAD? So in simple words, it is the follow up from CAD. THANKS FOR WATCHING MY PREZI!! ANd alsoTHANK You very much to Mr Alvarez for assisting us on this very hard topic.
