Job Description for Computer-Aided Design Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD CAM) Programmer
Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD CAM) programmers use computer programs to design products and parts for manufacturing. CAD CAM programmers may work either alone or on teams to draft and design parts and also provide schematics for parts and measurement and diagramming dimensions, material tolerance, and intricate details for a products. They may have to design full two- or three-dimensional models to offer both main and auxiliary views.Read More...
Those in this position may work on part of a schematic which is then developed further by another team member, or they themselves may complete entire projects from start to finish. They must be proficient in CAD (computer aided design) and CAM (computer aided manufacturing) schematic-drafting programs such as AUTOCAD and Rhinoceros.
Most employers require two-year technical certification/s in these programs, and more competitive positions may require a bachelor's degree in a field such as engineering or computer sciences. CAD CAM programmers can expect to work weekdays [and occasionally weekends] during traditional business hours; however, demanding projects may require working some overtime or irregular hours. These programmers generally work indoors with a computer and drafting equipment, while some work in manufacturing spaces, as well.
