At the end of this course, students should be able to:
 Explain CAD/CAM systems and applications in manufacturing industry.
 Apply principle of CAD/CAM in creating 2D sketches, 3D models, surface modeling and CAM operation.
 Plan machining strategies and toolpath methods for milling and turning operations.
 Investigate and simulate machining operations prior to the machining process.
This course introduces CAD/CAM system and its application in manufacturing industry. It covers the application of high-end CAD/CAM software for generating geometric modeling and NC part programming. The related topics will be covered are generating 2D Graphic Elements, Geometric Modeling Systems, Generative/Interactive Drafting, CAD and CAM Integration, and CAM Programming. CAD/CAM software will be used to demonstrate the integration between CAD and CAM operation that includes create and simulate the toolpath for machining operations and also generate NC part programming.
