CAD/CAM - Now we've got it, what do we do with it?

  • John Farmer Sawston Village College


This article sets out to explain how staff at Sawston Village College went about familiarising themselves with new CAD/CAM equipment. Hopefully, it contains some advice which may be helpful to those who may be considering the purchase of hardware and shows how activities may be planned and introduced to pupils in the first year. Some evaluation has been carried out and staff hope that observations and comments will help to shape further development within the units which have already been started and with pupils as they progress through the school.
