Quick, someone notify the press, as this is NEWS!!

CAM is the programing of the fabrication equipment, yes; but the information id fed, most effecently, fed to the machine tools via CAD. To do it manually (by trabnsferring information from a print, for example) is far more prone to errors.

This is true enough, as far as it goes. It misses the point, though, that the information must get from the design facility to the fabrication facility. That is done most effectively through Direct File Transfer.

Perhaps this is more true for propriatry robots (specialized -- designed and built to do very specific jobs, and typically in somewhat small quantities); however not for the mass produced robots. Those typically have programing languages and often the robot manufacturer offers courses in programing their robots.
I did work a bit with one robotic company in developing programs rhat would be based on the AutoCAD solid model assembly and the use of a program that would animate the assembly process.
Come on -- keep up. Otherwise yer holding everybody back.

I assume that this translates to "you seem to have at least a hint of what you are talking about and I can no longer spew drivel with impunity."
Sorry. If this is a bother I could be convinced to ignore your postings in the future ... but I so appreciate being reminded of the backwards daze of working on the drawing board. Today, the reminder is a major form of entertainment for me.
