Description

CAD-CAM systems are probably the most significant development in the field of new technology related to engineering, design and drafting in all technical spheres. These systems find application in all branches of modern design. In current publication the author describes via review, analysis and case studies the state of art in the selection, application and implementation of such systems. New manufacturing technologies that build parts on a layer-by-layer basis are also analyzed. Using these technologies, manufacturing time for parts is rapid. A host of related technologies that are used to fabricate physical objects directly from Computer-Aided Design data sources are reviewed.

Preface

CAD-CAM systems are probably the most significant development in the field of new technology related to engineering, design and drafting in all technical spheres. These systems find application in all branches of modern design – from machine engineering and microelectronics to architecture and construction building and others. In current publication the author describes in detail via review, analysis and processing case study data the state of art in the selection, application and implementation of such systems.

The past decade has additionally witnessed the emergence of new manufacturing technologies that build parts on a layer-by-layer basis. Using these technologies, manufacturing time for parts of virtually any complexity is measured in hours instead of days, weeks, or months. In other words, it is rapid. A host of related technologies that are used to fabricate physical objects directly from Computer-Aided Design data sources are reviewed in the last chapter. These methods are generally similar to each other in that they add and bond materials in layerwise-fashion to form objects.
