CAM - computer-aided manufacturing. It is software system which integrate operation of design and manufacturing of goods. CAM systems generate machine code based on CAD models. This code is then sent to numerically controlled machine tools such as lathes, milling machines and lasers, etc.). By this, it is possible to automatically create a designed part from given material.
The integration of CAD, CAE and CAM systems allows to: create a digital model of the object, analyze of object behavior in various circumstances and its physical production using automated machines.
