What is CAD/CAM?
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 production parts.

For more than 20 years S & A Engineering has served the automotive and instrumentation industries; designing, machining and prototyping with plastics, aluminum and steel.
Reggie Smith, owner of S & A Engineering, purchased OneCNC in 2001 which was his first jump into becoming a full CNC shop with CAD/CAM capability for accepting 3D solid models. He previously used another software calling it “clumsy at best and incredibly hard to learn”. A friend had introduced him to OneCNC and immediately he felt that OneCNC could handle the 3D part files he received and get the job done. “When I first purchased OneCNC, I knew I would have no trouble importing and machining any part files”.
“Dealing with OneCNC sales and technical support has been a very friendly and helpful experience, and my last upgrade reminded me of how powerful and easy OneCNC software is and has continued to be over the years”.
