A typical PC-based CAD/CAM system begins with a personal computer (PC). This computer should have enough power and memory and must be properly configured to effectively run the software .An input device or two will also be required. Normally this would consist of a mouse and a keyboard. Output devices are also needed such as a printer or plotter to generate blueprints, CNC programs, and tool sheets or other necessary paperwork. The system would also include CAD/CAM software. Selecting the correct software to meet the requirements of manufacturing application is perhaps the most important aspect of your system.
