At MSI, we utilize a unique CAD/CAM software known as PartMaker. CAD/CAM stands for Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing, respectively. This software is used to design a product and then program, or plan, the manufacturing of that product, especially on a CNC machine.
The primary purpose of using a CAD/CAM software is to create a faster production process, with tooling and components having more precise dimensions and consistency. CAD/CAM is also used to reduce material waste, reduce energy consumption and reduce production times. This is accomplished through PartMaker’s ability to digitally generate the most economical paths for the machine’s tools to travel while producing the part.
