http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/C/CAD_CAM.html

Acronym for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing, computer systems used to design and manufacture products. The term CAD/CAM implies that an engineer can use the system both for designing a product and for controlling manufacturing processes. For example, once a design has been produced with the CAD component, the design itself can control the machines that construct the part.

Martyn, have you used Google at all? On the Google home page there is a capability to add a Google Toolbar to your browser. As long as you deny Google the right to gather information in the setup, you will also find it is useful in blocking popup screens.

Google is great to find all sorts of information, just by typing the phrase into the rectangle. I realise you don't get the farmiliar friendly responses though.........
Cheers,

As Truckster reminded me I should run Lavasoft program Adaware ,as I do weekly with the new definitions if you search frequently. It kills the little spy programs there that watch my searches and to see what I do. Makes a farting noise as it tells me how many it has or has not found at the end of the run. Also will kill them.

Have you guys got it? It is downloadable or on magazine cover CDRoms downloading the new defintions. Truckster told me he found a puter with over 200 spies on it recently. Watch your move. I also use a bot search and destroy too. Easier than putting water in your screen washer bottle folks or changing your filters and cheaper.

Hi Martyn,

Truckster's response is correct. We use this at work frequently. Essentially once a design has been released via the CAD system, the part file can be transferred directly to a numerically controlled machining centre (lathe, mill, etc) to allow the part to be manufactured.

If you happen to be passing Balcatta anytime, then give me a call and I'll show you how this works.
