-(computer aided manufacturing) - In short, CAM is the program that you will use to turn CAD (computer aided drawing / drafting) into G-Code. Before CAM, machine operators would program G-Code by writing it out which was hugely labor intensive and often rather limiting. The programs that that are developed through the CAM process today are roughly 100x longer and 10x more complex than they were 20 years ago when CAM programs first became popular in heavy manufacturing. Traditionally CAM programs are very expensive; however the price keeps dropping every year.+(computer aided manufacturing) - In short, CAM is the program that you will use to turn CAD (computer aided drawing / drafting) into G-Code.
