CAD-CAM software is a critical component of CNC manufacturing and metalworking due in large part to its ability to automate the design and manufacturing process. The influence of computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing technology can be seen in how we live our everyday lives as consumers. It’s used to help manufacture nearly every mass produced consumer product on the planet. It also has a very important role in prototyping new designs and allowing engineers to create precision parts quicker and easier.
