Geometry in Action

Computer Aided Manufacturing

Computer aided manufacturing concerns the use of algorithms for planning and controlling fabrication processes. These algorithms are also important to computer aided design, since it is important to be able to test manufacturability as part of the design process. Specific areas of computer aided manufacturing listed as separate topics here include grasping and fixturing, metrology, robot motion planning, and textile layout.
