➤The Useful CAD and CAM Software of the CNC Router Machine:
CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) refers to computer software that is used to both design and manufacture products. CAD is the use of computer technology for design and design documentation. CAD/CAM applications are used to both design a product and program manufacturing processes, specifically, CNC machining. CAM software uses the models and assemblies created in CAD software to generate tool paths that drive the machines that turn the designs into physical parts. CAD/CAM software is most often used for machining of prototypes and finished parts.
CAD: CAD designed shapes in CAD, often to create 2D part shapes for machining. Generally, CAD design software will allow the creation of surfaces; 3D contours that define the shape and can then be used in CAM for the CNC machine process. Modern CAD software allows for the creation of parts that are used in 2, 3, 4 & 5 Axis CNC machining. Therefore, CAD software is a necessary part of the manufacturing process as designed parts are transferred to CAM for programming the machine side of the manufacturing process.
CAM: Again, The term “CAM” is generally used in the industry to define the Computer Aided Manufacturing or Machining process. This is after a CAD design has been completed and CAM is needed to actually process the CAD part into a usable machine language that can be used by a milling machine or a lathe for machining. The language is often referred to as “G-Code”. Before a CAD model can be turned into this machine language, the CAM software must be programmed in order to calculate cutting paths in which the tools that are being used will take to remove excess material and produce a part. Most often found in CNC Milling, CNC Lathe and CNC Router. Yet also found in the part programming process for CNC Water Jets, Plasma, Laser and CNC Burning machines.
BTW, the leading CAD software for Pros is SolidWorks, and the leading CAM software is Mastercam, though Fusion 360 is moving up fast. Pros
need the software that performs best for someone who is an expert in using the software. They want CAD that lets experts create precision drawings faster.
Popular CAD CNC router software: There are many CNC CAD software available for wood CNC router.
Both paid and free ones are available. Currently, the most popular CNC CAD software includes Rhino3D, AutoCAD, Solidworks, Sketchlist3D, Fusion 360, Wings 3D etc. Relatively speaking, free CAD software may be simpler and easier to use. It not only provides 2D drawing but also
helps to create 3D models.
The CNC CAM software receives the CAD drawing files and generates a G code. This is necessary for your CNC router machine to run its route. You need to let your wood CNC router know its work needs, feed, moving speed and other information. G code, referring to general code, is what directly controls you CNC wood carving machine. It is one of the most popular and widely used programming languages. The G code is used to communicate with the CNC router machine and enables the machine to move in desired pattern. In short, the CAM software for CNC router turns you design file into a language that your wood CNC router can understand and generates a G code. Essentially, this means entering commands and having specialized machines execute it immediately. There are several types of G code files, and the most common types include .CNC, .NC, and .TAP. CNC CAM software can eradicate the gap between design and manufacturing by the appropriate realization of drawings, designs and models. It can provide the anticipated output, and eventually expands the scope of production and manufacturing. Popular CAM CNC router software There are also many CNC CAM software available for the CNC router machine. For example, the best paid CNC CAM software include PowerMILL, MeshCAM, OneCNC, MasterCam for Solidworks, etc. Commonly used free CAM CNC router software include FreeMILL, G-Simple, PyCAM etc.
Both CAD/CAM software: Solidworks, Mastercam, Type3, Ucancam, Artcam, Alphacam, Fusion360, UG, Vectric Aspire. They are all suitable to our CNC Router Machine.
