The development of micro-based procedure for the teaching of three-dimensional geometric design

Whilst many people appreciate that CADCAM is an integrated technology covering the whole of design and manufacture since systems development is still in its infancy, many of the industrial installations use only one of the many components of a system. It is however important that at the educational level the concept of CADCAM is taught rather than the detail of industrial application thereby differentiating between education and training. This paper details the background to the development of the microcomputer-based CADCAM education system relevant to mechanical engineering.
