Digital Design and Manufacturing: CAD/CAM Applications in Architecture
Authors: James Kimo Griggs, Kenneth Martin Kao, Marco Steinberg John Wiley & Sons, November 2004
Digital Design and Manufacturing explains what CAD/CAM technologies are all about and how they can be used in the design and production process. Several architectural case studies are provided and examples from the world of industrial design and product design are discussed, as are issues related to the design of parts and assemblies for automated manufacturing and assembly. More technically oriented chapters cover how to implement CAD/CAM technologies in architecture, including software and digital modeling, computer numerical control (CNC) machines, as well as the manufacturing processes and systems.
