Differences between Computer-Aided Design (CAD) & Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)

A system that enables engineers and architects to design models of the products, new car, aircraft, bridge, building and many other things is called Computer-Aided Design (CAD). It is a combination of hardware and software.

CAD system allows engineers/architects to view a design model from any angle. The designed model can be changed/modified very easily. When an engineer changes one value, all other values that depend on it are automatically changed accordingly.

CAD system requires the following hardware devices for designing the products:
  • High-quality graphics monitor.
  • Input devices such as mouse, keyboard, light pen, and digitizing tablet for drawing.
  • Output devices such as printers and plotters for printing designed models.

 Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)
A system that is used to control the machine tools and related machinery in the manufacturing process of the products is called Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). It is a combination of hardware and software.

CAM system has the following benefits:
  • Product can be made very accurately and quickly.
  • Produced product is much cheaper.

Ive never used the computer program solidworks and i have to take the CSWA exam next week. I looked at some practice problems and i couldnt replicate any of the designs so do i hvae a chance? Are there any tips about how to pass it because i know its multiple choice. I have to take it for a class and it has no impact on mygrade so ill just try and do my best but most answers will be guesses..

Solidworks Course

Thanks to all of you for compliment. We had stopped working to under any compulsion. Now we'll try our best to better than before and in easy words.

Nice Blog.........Thank u for sharing this info.To know more info read this blog Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design.Computer Aided Design toolsCAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation, and to create a database for manufacturing.
