Teaching CAD and CAM

  • G. Cockerham


There are many problems to be faced by those wishing to introduce CADCAM into the syllabus. Not only has the problem failed to incorporate into an already overall syllabus to be considered but also the problems of presenting and illustrating the integrated nature of CADCAM with the very high cost of such systems. This paper details the approach adopted by one polytechnic.
