Computer-aided design?(CAD) is the use of?computer systems?(or?workstations) to aid in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a?design.?CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation, and to create a database for manufacturing.?CAD output is often in the form of electronic files for print, machining, or other manufacturing operations. The term?CADD?(for?Computer Aided Design and Drafting) is also used.
Computer-aided manufacturing?(CAM) is the use of software to control?machine tools?and related ones in the?manufacturing?of workpieces.?This is not the only definition for CAM, but it is the most common;?CAM may also refer to the use of a computer to assist in all operations of a manufacturing plant, including planning, management, transportation and storage.?Its primary purpose is to create a faster production process and components and tooling with more precise dimensions and material consistency, which in some cases, uses only the required amount of raw material (thus minimizing waste), while simultaneously reducing energy consumption.?CAM is now a system used in schools and lower educational purposes. CAM is a subsequent computer-aided process after?computer-aided design?(CAD) and sometimes?computer-aided engineering?(CAE), as the model generated in CAD and verified in CAE can be input into CAM software, which then controls the machine tool. CAM is used in many schools alongside Computer-Aided Design (CAD) to create objects.

Pinus strobus, commonly denominated the?eastern white pine,?northern white pine,?white pine,?Weymouth pine?(British), and?soft pine?is a large?pine?native to eastern?North America. It occurs from?Newfoundland, Canada west through the?Great Lakes region?to southeastern?Manitoba?and?Minnesota, United States, and south along the?Appalachian Mountains?and upper?Piedmont?to northernmost?Georgia?and perhaps very rarely in some of the higher elevations in northeastern?Alabama.
The?Native American?Haudenosaunee?denominated it the "Tree of Peace". It is known as the "Weymouth pine" in the United Kingdom,?after Captain?George Weymouth?of the?British Royal Navy, who brought its seeds to England from?Maine?in 1605.
