3.0 out of 5 stars Getting dated, lots of errors 12 July 2012
By jtflag - Published on Amazon.com
I've used this text for a reference and for teaching several courses. The main problem is that it is getting outdated--ANY text that has "computer" in the title gets outdated after a few years. Of course, there are fewer and fewer texts that address CAD/CAM in the marketplace as well, because they can't keep up with the technology. ON the other hand, manufacturing systems (particularly CNC) don't change quickly, so much of the legacy systems out there can be addressed with the text. The other issue is the number of figure and solution errors--there are quite a few. If you assign problems from the text, be prepared to check every single problem. I've alerted the publisher to this problem several times and have not seen any update or even an errata sheet.

In summary: Pretty good for an encompassing CAD/CAM text, a bit dated (especially the CAD section), and check for errors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeping in touch with a changing world 17 Jun 2000
By Edwin John Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
This thorough book will help anyone concerned with CAD/CAM related technology stay in touch with a fast changing world. It covers a wide range of topics from product design to manufacturing control. All of the major CAD/CAM topics are included as well as chapters on automation, numerical control and robotics. This is a serious tool for the dedicated engineering professional.
