Was created by Nicolae Mircea Popa to have a control over the different projects. In this website you can find different information about CNC, CAD, CAM, G-Code, 3D projections and software tutorials used for this purpose.


What is CNC?
Computer Numerical Control, is the automated control of machining tools (drills, boring tools, lathes) and 3D printers by means of a computer. The CNC machine processes a piece of material (metal, plastic, wood, ceramic, or composite) to meet specifications by following a coded programmed instruction and without a manual operator.


What is CAD?
Computer Aided Design is the use of computers (or workstations) to aid in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design. CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation , and to create a database for manufacturing. CAD output is often in the form of electronic files for print, machining, or other manufacturing operations.


What is CAM?
Computer Aided manufacturing also known as Computer Aided Modeling or Computer Aided Machining is the use of software to control machine tools and related ones in the manufacturing of workpieces. This is not the only definition for CAM, but it is the most common; CAM may also refer to the use of a computer to assist in all operations of a manufacturing plant, including planning, management, transportation and storage. Its primary purpose is to create a faster production process and components and tooling with more precise dimensions and material consistency, which in some cases, uses only the required amount of raw material (thus minimizing waste), while simultaneously reducing energy consumption.


What is G-Code?
G-code (also RS-274), which has many variants, is the common name for the most widely used numerical control (NC) programming language. It is used mainly in computer-aided manufacturing to control automated machine tools. G-code is a language in which people tell computerized machine tools how to do something. The “how” is defined by g-code instructions provided to a machine controller (industrial computer) that tells the engines where to move, how fast to move, and what path to follow.
