Types of software used in CNC machining
Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) - CAD software is often seen as the starting point for a CNC project, allowing engineers, architects and designers to modify, check or sand a product into the desired shape. This software includes well-known programs such as AutoCAD, SolidWorks, ProE, and Rhino3D to increase production, improve design quality, facilitate effective communication, coordinate schedules, and more.
Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) - Also known as computer-aided modeling or computer-aided machining, this software helps manufacturers speed up the process of modifying raw materials and components into their final form. Often complementary to CAD software, CAM is used in the mechanical, electrical, industrial and aerospace engineering industries, allowing manufacturers to build toolpaths and run simulations before starting the cutting process.
