.CAM File Association 3
A CAM file is a CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) data file saved in the FastCAM format. It contains CAD (computer-aided design) information, which includes the processing path and material, thickness, and quantity details of the object. CAM files are similar to .DXF files developed by Autodesk.
CAM files saved in the FastCAM format are typically created and opened by FastCAM Drawing Editor. They may also be opened by the FastNEST automatic true shape nesting module.
FastCAM Drawing Editor is typically used by engineers, tradesmen, and draftsmen. The software is designed for high speed reproduction of NC (Numerical Control) drawings and is used with 2D cutting equipment, such as Plasma, Laser, Waterjet, and Oxy.
