Automatic CAM (ACAM) in Subtractive CNC Machining

Over the last few years, the Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machining industry has been facing a dual challenge: a growing demand for machined parts and a shortage of qualified machine operators and programmers. With both issues, the demand and the shortage, getting worse, the industry needs a solution. Ideally, machine operators' productivity would rise so they could run more CNC machines. Instead, this challenge requires introducing deeply automated machining, in other words, a move from Computer Added Manufacturing (CAM) to Automatic Computer Added Manufacturing (ACAM).

Topics Discussed in This Resource: 

  • What is Automated CAM, and what does it entail?
  • What are the processes that need to be built to enable ACAM?
  • How CGM Modeler and 3D InterOp support ACAM enablement.
  • Model requirements for ACAM.

The Benefits of Using SDK Technology

The Benefits of Using SDK Technology

Software development toolkits (SDKs) are now used by almost every CAD/CAM vendor in one form or another. Popular applications included 3D geometric modeling, data translation,  visualization, toolpath generation and simulation.

Why are SDKs so popular in the CAD/CAM industry? This white paper takes a look at SDK technology, the benefits and return on investment.
