What is CAD/CAM?

CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) refers to computer software that is used to both design and manufacture products.

CAD is the use of computer technology for design and design documentation. CAD/CAM applications are used to both design a product and program manufacturing processes, specifically, CNC machining. CAM software uses the models and assemblies created in CAD software to generate tool paths that drive the machines that turn the designs into physical parts. CAD/CAM software is most often used for machining of prototypes and finished production parts.

Manufacturing professionals are on hand to take you through a free demonstration of the capabilities of OneCNC CAD/CAM on your own product. The advantages can be demonstrated on-line or even in person.

About us

OneCNC was founded in 1983 and has grown into one of the most used CAD/CAM packages marketed globally.

Dedication To Quality

OneCNC was first created in Australia in 1983 by QARM Pty Ltd, which is one of the pioneer developers of PC-based computer-aided manufacturing CAD/CAM software. QARM was one of the first to introduce CAD/CAM software designed for both machinists and engineers to run on mainstream desktop PC's. OneCNC is Qarm's developed product, development started as a 2D CAM system with CAD tools that let machinists design mechanical parts on a personal computer screen to guide computer numerical controlled CNC machine tools to manufacture those parts. Since that beginning OneCNC has grown into one of the most widely used global CAD/CAM packages marketed globally. OneCNC product development is located in the Brisbane Bayside suburb of Ormiston on Moreton Bay Australia with global branch offices.
