For advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate courses in CAD/CAM, manufacturing systems, and manufacturing control in industrial and mechanical engineering departments. Using a strong science-based and analytical approach, this text provides a modern description of CAM from an engineering perspective to include design specification, process engineering, and production. It begins with discussions of part design and geometric modeling and then gives detailed coverage of individual technologies and building blocks to provide readers with a clear understanding of CAM technology. Unlike most other texts in the field, this book includes both descriptive information and analytical models.
